I come from a very close, loving family who taught me to care for those around me. I know that my family will always be there for me if I ever need help and support which I'm very grateful for and I will always be there for my family if they need anything.
I don't know what else to tell you except that whether it works out or not, I promise to make getting to know me an enjoyable experience.
I spend a lot of my time with my family and closest friends. I tend to focus on having more meaningful relationships and friendships with fewer people.
Other than that, I'm not too shabby at math. My math doesn't taste as good as my pastries, but if you ever need somebody to help you with some math homework, I'm pretty good at that, too.
When people around me start talking about their favorite bands, I usually haven't heard of any of them. It's the way that I've always been, so I don't think that the best way to connect with me is to talk about some music that you like. But for the sake of it, growing up, I loved listening to Salt n Peppa, SWV, Tupac and Bell Biv Devoe. Nowadays, I love dancing to funk and soul more than anything else.
As far as movies and TV goes, I watched my share of TV, but when I was growing up, so often my TV shows were science shows and nature documentaries. So, if you watched PBS and loved watching 3-2-1 Contact, we might remember some of the same shows, but overall, I'm ignorant of a lot of the stuff out there. Where I grew up as a kid in Northern New Mexico, we only had PBS.
I don't have a TV right now, but I enjoy watching The Big Bang Theory when I go to my grandma's house, but I don't watch any shows on a regular basis.
As far as movies go, I like fantasy movies alright. I usually have no idea which movies are out now nor do I usually go to the theater. I loved watching The Princess Bride with my uncle when I was in high school and we both lived in my grandpa's basement. I remember watching Star Trek with him every night until he had to go to bed, but sometimes we'd stay up late and watch Monty Python.
I also loved Kids in the Hall growing up and I appreciate comedy such as Hari Kondabolu.
As for food, that's completely different. I love to explore all kinds of different foods. I've already mentioned that I love cooking. I have fond memories of cooking food with my grandpa when he was alive.
I love inexpensive, non-pretentious food that somebody's grandma made the best. I love the food in some expensive restaurants, but they better truly bring the flavor because I don't give a shit about the atmosphere. And I'm happier when I can go to a hole in the wall with better food than most fancy places.
Good Food -- Cooking and eating.
Play -- I am not above climbing a tree, playing tag or generally running around like a little kid.
Fighting for Justice -- Without fighting against oppression, I'd feel like I was wasting my life. How to do this, which struggles to take a part in and how to effectively do so is something that I'm evaluating right now.
Family and Community -- Having support and people to care about is vital to life. I believe in getting to know your neighbors and looking out for each other. I love having a large family who will always be there for me and I'll be there for them.
But, I still enjoy math and science, so I still think about that a lot as well.
I've also noticed that I tend to think more about health and building support than I did when I was a bit younger.
If you have a huge heart and you generally care about people and feel motivated to do something with those feelings.
If you think about serious things, but you're able to at least sometimes step back and have some fun.
If you have a strong priority towards family and understand how powerful familial support can be.
