I'm on here looking for whatever really, if you want to go check out a new restaurant i'm up for that, if you want to go hiking or something outdoorsy that's awesome too. Dates are good too, but its not necessary.
I graduated from Indiana University in Chinese language, anthropology and religious studies almost 2 years ago >.<. I visited the Bay Area for a few months moved back, lived in Korea for a year, lived in Taiwan for 2 years, finished Grad school, now back in Asia .
The rest of the profile I've not updated in awhile, so chronologically this thing may be a bit off. just a disclaimer :-)

"this is beauty and this is beauty and you are beauty and love is beauty and we are beauty we are divine and changed by time"
I've also taken a certain fondness towards downhill skiing lately and would like to learn more and mountain biking is pretty damn fun (both these sports I'm pretty new at).

....honestly i'm just a big academic (folks have even called me an academic snob) so i don't really have time to get really good at things besides writing papers >.< (In other words "I'm a jack of all trades and master of none")
Jogging/yoga fits in there somewhere too...maybe i'll consider that a good friend
I also wonder why people on cupid who claim to be happily dating are even on a dating site. I wonder if maybe they're really looking for the the next best thing?

I'm secretly a Wasian. That does not mean Rice Queen in the least bit. I've been to Asia and had Chinese men pawing at me only because of my blonde hair, flattering at first, but quickly leads to feeling objectified and less than human, so I know how it goes. I simply like Asian food and learn about Asian cultures. I probably feel more comfortable in a Japanese and Chinese grocery than most others. Shrimp Chips ya!
Lastly, I have little fantasies of the bajillion spiders in my house all gathering at midnight and dangling from the ceiling waltzing with each other to Danse Macabre. (this is based off reality though, I did catch them all partying in the bathroom one night)
Or if you practice mindfulness and health/wellness
You have a healthy sense of adventure and a curiosity of the environment around you (both human and natural).
A healthy outlook on life.

"Jam tomorrow Jam yesterday but never ever Jam today!"

明月何皎皎 照我儸牀幃 憂愁不能寐 攬衣起排徊 各行雖云樂 不如早旋歸 出戶獨彷徨 愁思當告誰 引領還入房 淚下沾裳衣 if you can relate to her :-(
