David actually, but I bet I had you going for a second. I am a Curryholic, Hufflepuff, INFP, and Nerd/Geek.
I love a good story whether its told in paint, print, or plowed fields.
Perspective is important to me, possibly the most important thing; I like to think, to play devil's advocate, to 'walk two moons', laugh, and engage in thoughtful conversation. I find that actively cultivating perspective allows me to be a more resourceful and empathetic person, which makes up a lot of who I am. I've worked hard to become who I am and have had the privilege of great friendships, love, and understanding as my reward. I don't know why these connections fuel me but I am happy to live life heart first.
My ultimate goal in life is to give something back to the world in whatever way that I can, to connect with and understand as many people as possible, and to be able to teach my children these understandings so that they might grow to become better people and contribute to the healthy success of humanity as well as the rest of the inhabitants of earth(and maybe someday other planets). In the pursuit of all of this I intend to learn the 10 most spoken languages of the world and to pursue interpretation as a career. Duolingo is helping immensely with that haha.
Things I'm bad at to keep me humble:
Seeing, Swimming, Small-talk, & Thinking of things I'm good at(haha).
I am always friendly but I don't conform to social norms mostly out of habit and that tends to be rather apparent.
Much like my tastes in music, my tastes in film and writing are broad and selective. My favourite genres are: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Non-fiction, and Comedy. I list my media preferences in this order: Book, Film, Animation, Video Game, Audio/Oral, Graphic Novel.
Music: There are far too many to list, ask me :]

"Food, my goddess. Your eyes, like marinated brisket, fill me with anticipation of each bite. Your heart, slow roasted over a medium flame with assorted stewing vegetables, so tender and warm. Some days you're saucy, some you come plain or with noodles, but every day you remain my one and only, my true love."
TEA. I could not live a happy life without tea.
Preferably Loose Leaf, but I'm not too picky.
Food and Nerd-stuffs.

-You'd enjoy a good conversation.
-You drink tea without sugar, or at least with honey;
-You read books for leisure and can suggest ones for me to read;
-You want to share experiences or go on an adventure;
-You don't mind that my best friend is female and will be my best man when that day comes.
-Some other reason trivial or of great Import.
1. I'm pretty open-minded and even excited when it comes to religions, cultures, and philosophies, however I am not open-minded to any sort of oppressive acts or dogmatic attitudes, especially those that encourage ignorance towards evidenced reality.
2. I am 100% for equality among all beings, earthbound or otherwise, especially those of the Homo Sapien variety. Life is rare in the universe and they are all important. If you are in extreme support or extreme opposition of any culture, gender, sex, way of life, species, religion, or colouring, you might want to look elsewhere.
