My self-summary
See, I figure if I had a past life of any sort that brought me into a greater form of existence (assuming being human is superior to a baked good) then I imagine my last incarnation was as a really good fortune cookie.

All this really means is that I keep a robust life of introspection. I'm an introvert by nature, which means that when I do want to go out I'm no more socially awkward or a wallflower than your average extroverted life-of-the-party sorts. I'm the sort that likes being focused on small groups of individuals. Quantity was never my measure for a healthy social life.

What this has produced is a wild appreciation for writing and stories. If there are people around while I read I will show them something I find great. If I find a movie memorable, I will watch it again and again trying to find things I missed. I listen to music more for the lyrics than for the music itself. It's why on a given playlist you may find that Sarah McLachlan or Ani DiFranco comes right after Marilyn Manson and System of a Down.

I'm an eccentric person.

Likewise, though I will say I'm an emotionally intelligent person who tries to avoid being an ass, if necessity pushes me then my opinions will drop in sensitivity and tact.
What I’m doing with my life
Well I'm very aware that I am living. Definitely living it. Oh, and I'm being ambitious. Definitely being ambitious.

What can I say? I go to school and I cook. I'm pretty good at both.
I’m really good at
Getting people gifts. Staring off into space. Making soups. Sitting in comfortable ways. Making spaghetti and meatballs from scratch. Making a lot of things from leftovers. Using a debit card. Losing debit cards. Keeping track of numbers. Basic math. Spelling. Watching movies. Reading. Pessimism. Optimism. Expressing good moods. Expressing bad moods. Appreciating proper ventilation. Corporate mergers. Creating synergy. Adhering to a true "go-getter" attitude. Sticking to popular talking points.
The first things people usually notice about me
They can't tell where I'm from but they really, really feel like I should be Japanese and sometimes Mexican. Very sometimes I am some kind of Mexican. Very sometimes indeed.

so softly from the
radio, the daylight's going.

I sit surrounded by hymns that
nobody can ever take away
as the workers bend over
hot soup and cold

Some Wintersleep
"...I think it's coming and it comes so fast
I'm hearing whispers of an infinite yes
And I don't know why it is
I feel it coming, I think it's real and significant
I think I think I think a little too often
That's what my therapist said
We're alone in this wilderness
Left to choke on the pills and to feed on the viruses
I think it's coming and it comes so fast "

Movies: Factory Girl, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, American Beauty...

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a fear of heights and porcelain dolls. This means that the worst thing imaginable in my life is sky-diving with fragile and pale children, dressed in Victorian clothes, with rosy cheeks.
