Came to LA to work on a PhD program. I don't get out of Westwood much but it'd be nice to explore the rest of this sprawl.
I require a regular beach to take a regular long walk on. Also was (am) a fat kid, and never lost the love of great food.
I was raised deep in the Midwest (rural Chicago), where the land is sold in acres and the horses, cows, and chickens outnumber people. Went to California for university, gradumacated, worked in Japan for a few years, then Seattle, and now I'm here.
Finding pleasure in the mundane. Like how highlighting stuff on OkCupid turns everything blue. It's the little things.
It's not my height.
It's not my shyness that turns into gregarious sociability once I get to know you (I would be worried if this wasn't true for most people).
It's not my smile. Re: profile pic.
I don't change my clothes with the seasons; the seasons change to fit what I'm wearing.
I love sour foods, so when life gives me lemons, I use them to zest up a dish or sometimes as a nice garnish with seafood.
Music: Mozart, Beethoven, Lady Gaga, Mika, Capital Cities, musicals, whatever is playing on the radio. I like a good beat. Come and get this va va voom voom!
Books: David Sedaris, Eric Nylund, Ursula K. Le Guin, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Classical Japanese texts
I also just wrote a book, so if you're a literary agent looking for a 110k word soft sci-fi novel, hit me up. Right now it's on Amazon, so give it a gander if you're interested. More than happy to give you a free copy if you message me. (I call it My Daddy Issues In Space©)
Throw in some self-doubt and a smattering of OCD and we're all good!
What it would be like to have a normal schedule and sleep when everyone else does.
I often wonder about beets. They're dirt fruit. It's as if they started growing and then halfway just said, "Fuck it, I'm going to use dirt as my flavor." I liked them once in this wonderful salad, but then feared I was excreting blood...so yeah.
I just stayed up till 4AM yesterday looking at Groupons for liposuction. I believe that says something about my life, but I don't know what.
Perhaps out on the town, seeing what new places there are to try.
Perhaps at home, my hands sweaty from trying to beat a tough game.
Perhaps at the gym, working off all that I ate earlier.
I'm not a grammar nazi, but I do appreciate people who put effort into the English language.
I have an extremely childish sense of humor. If you think Glitteris is one of the best band/child names, we'll get along.
If I'm listening to the Charlie's Angels theme while running, I will have my hands clasped together making a gun, pretending I'm Cameron Diaz chasing a bad guy.
I love the film Batman & Robin. Nobody does drag like Uma Thurman.
If you're looking for yet another Asian bottom.
Also if you want a free copy of my book.
