My self-summary
I'm pretty easy going, and I like new experiences. I spent a few years living abroad, so I think I'm open-minded and accepting of different quirks and lifestyles. I'm sarcastic, but I don't think I'm a jerk about it.

I'm into movies, music, dining out, hiking, travel, photography, or just hanging out.

7年間ぐらい日本語を勉強していました。2年ぐらい滋賀県にある安曇川というところでALTとして働きました。とてもいい体験でした。

シアトルには日本語が出来る友達はまだ居ません。話したかったら、メセージしてください!よろしくお願いします。
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a business analyst, and I enjoy the mix of creativity and critical thinking it (usually) requires. I don't feel particularly defined by my job, but I feel lucky that it's satisfying right now. After making some big geographical moves for my career, "work/life balance" is more and more important to me.

I was really involved in the arts when I was growing up, and I try to keep that up in my free time. I take pictures, study musical instruments, keep a journal, and try whatever else I come across that seems fun.

I had a short, fun entrepreneurship experience, and I'm looking for the next one.
I’m really good at
Eating with chopsticks.
Traveling.
Losing house keys and forgetting to send in rebate forms.
"Staying calm."
Drinking quickly.
Procrastinating.
Finishing the WHOLE pizza (then napping).
Remembering to floss.
Getting by without a clothes dryer.
Swimming.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've gotten some eyebrow comments recently. And I miss little hairs on my neck all the time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies

Tons! Here are some I revisit: Wet Hot American Summer, Requiem for a Dream, Best in Show, The Irony of Fate, Be With Me, Lust/Caution, Pride and Prejudice, Groundhog Day, Black Swan, and others.

Shows

30 Rock, PBS NewsHour, Meet the Press, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Veep, documentaries, and whatever else friends are watching.

Music

I try to listen to newly-released albums each week. But I'd include Alison Krauss, The Weepies, Radical Face, Radiohead, Sia, etc.

Food

Particular favorites are Italian, Indian, Japanese, and Korean. I'm a pretty adventurous eater, so there isn't a genre of food that I rule out really. And I can eat spicier food than you. I can pretty much guarantee that. Yes, that IS a dare... ;)
The six things I could never do without
- peanut butter
- nytimes.com
- my journal
- some kind of project
- alone time
- a smartphone. If I broke mine I would probably replace it immediately. :-/
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current events. Finding new music. What project to do next. Snickers bars.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out. Or in. Half and half maybe.

I get the urge to get out sometimes. I guess I've been doing that less often lately.

When I stay in I like watching movies/tv, listening to music, surfing the internet, writing in my journal, reading, playing video games, or just talking over tea or wine (...or warm sake. Anyone? heh).
You should message me if
...if you're honest. The rest is probably chemistry. :)
