I'm Matias and generally, I like to laugh more than I like to cry. I like to bring laughter and beauty to the world around me. Music is quite important to me. My parents are from Uruguay and Chile, and my mom made sure to have me go to see my family down south as often as possible. Consequently, I was raised in two cultures and am too much of both to be either. So, I like to generate my own culture. And for the record, they don't give the option, but I actually identify as androgynous.
And conversations that have more than one person doing all the talking.
I LOVE to cook. I have been told by many people that I should start a restraunt. I especially love to bake pie/quiche.

I had a roommate who was obcessed with South Park, so I have seen literally every episode. I like the Daily Show/Colbert Report. I can get down on a number of the adult swim cartoons. Recently rediscovered my love of Star Trek.
Friends/Family especially my dogs!
Art in its myriad forms
No place that I will ever call my home
Save for the space within my bones
The cage that shields my heart from harm
The frame that gives my soul physical form
And roots me to the earth, the ground from which I'm growin'
Sometimes it tries to blind me; tries to keep me from knowin'
That time is an illusion, and my spirit keeps on flowin'
Beyond the edge of space, and all we can currently see
Open your eyes; you may come to find, the deeper mystery
The truth is not for knowing; it is simply for living
And though my love is not for free, it is always for giving
