I've been working in the mental health field for the past 8-9 years, primarily with adults living with severe, chronic mental illness, which is something that I have really loved doing. I now work at the local homeless services center providing triage services and various other forms of support for our homeless population. I have only been doing it since November 2014, so I am still learning about a lot of the services that are available, but the job has really challenged a lot of my preconceptions about homelessness; and if their's anything I love, it's having my preconceptions challenged!
I also love to consume and discuss media, especially movies, books, and video games.
Getting really excited by science!
Remembering trivial information about movies, The Simpsons (Only seasons 1-10), and other random garbage that I love.
Movies: 'Ikiru' by Akira Kurosawa; 'Silence of the Lambs' by Jonathan Demme; 'Genghis Blues' by Roko Belic; '3-Iron' by Kim Ki-Duk (also my favorite director); 'The Last Laugh' by F.W. Murnau;
Music: The Eels, Fun., Passion Pit, Hawaiian music, Bluegrass, 90's Alternative, Folk
TV Shows: South Park, Battlestar Galactica, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Simpsons (Seasons 1-10, before it got shitty), The Daily Show, The Colbert Report
Food: I'm a big fan of food and there's not a whole lot that I won't eat. I especially love meat products and I have no qualms about eating things that are high in fat and cholesterol. While I consider myself to have a rather refined sense of taste, that does not mean that I don't enjoy the gastronomic pleasures of a Double Down Chicken Sandwich every once in a while.
-Arguments that I might have with someone, or have already had and I want to fantasize about what I *should* have said that would've been AWESOME!!;
-and sex (deal with it!)
