Law school is slowly eroding away my humanity but I'm almost done and have been promised to be a fully functioning person again at graduation. And I trust this because lawyers never lie?
When I have time I pretend to be the hero in any and every novel I can get my hands on. I love movies because they allow you to experience an entire life story diluted into 2 hours- expanding and escaping from your own reality into something more interesting.
I pretend I'm the Hulk or Thor at the gym but more resemble Peter Parker....pre-radioactive spider bite. But I workout with guys 50 lbs heavier than me and kill myself to keep up.
I can converse with almost anyone I meet and entertain them. Ask me about how I started drinking screwdrivers with the big biker dude on the NJ Transit- encouraging him that he is sure to pass his trucker's license test. I learned his name only because "Big Al" was tattooed on his neck. And then look at my profile picture again and tell me that wouldn't have been funny to see.
I grew up playing classical music on the piano because I'm Asian and its mandatory. Yes, I'm good at math too. No, I won't do your taxes for you. (Yes, of course I COULD do them if I wanted to- Asian + numbers = "insert one of ten million self-deprecating Asian jokes")
Inexplicably good at Massages
