My self-summary
"There is an intimate relationship between what is wise and what
exists, though that relationship is subtle." -PKD
I am a smörgåsbord of intellectual curiosities and ancient
philosophies. I spend a majority of my time immersed in books when
I am not soaking up as much sun and being outdoors as much as
possible. I am an avid bicyclist, I absolutely live to jump on my
road bike when the weather is right. I have been a student for many
years now and it looks like I will be a student for a few more but
I hope to one day teach because I think like Confucius said its one
of the two most virtuous professions. I am not out to make a lot of
money but hopefully make a large impact on the lives of people.
Frankly, the less I accrue probably the better because life is not
meant to be lived for the sake of possessions and things but for
the wonder of life experiencing itself.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I am attending UCSD in pursuit of a bachelor's degree in philosophy. I plan on becoming a philosophy professor. After I get my degree I've been thinking of going to the PeaceCorps and maybe teaching English somewhere like Thailand. Then after 2 years come back and try Grad School at UC Berkeley.
I’m really good at
Communicating and listening, I love to philosophize (duh) and I love to cook italian food, I'm really good at it! I'm pretty good at making people feel like they count.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is that I have a warm smile that's contagious, and I look very young for my age people keep telling me I look younger than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: Anything by Herman Hesse, Philip K. Dick (my hero), Leo Tolstoy, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Shakespeare. Also great is Heart of Darkness by Conrad, Moby Dick, The Glass Bead Game and Siddhartha by Hesse. Many many more.
Movies: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, Dark City, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, There Will Be Blood, Suspiria
Shows: The Daily Show, Squidbillies, University China IL, Tyler's Ultimate, Rachel Maddow Show, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Music: by genre (Funk) Sly and the Family Stone, James Brown, Al Green, Antibalas, Budos Band, Otis Redding (Metal) Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, Slo Burn, Converge, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Monster Magnet, Cephalic Carnage (Jazz) Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Art Blakely, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk (Hip Hop) Eyedea & Abilities, Blueprint, Notorious BIG, Edan, Blue Scholars, King Gheedorah, Ghenghis Tron, NWA... and a bunch of classical music like Back and Mozart too...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What freedom means and whether or not morality is part of objective reality... and what the hell reality is anyway... I'm a philosopher so these get stuck with me.
You should message me if
You smiled at all while reading any of this, if you like Philip K. Dick you should message me because you'll find someone who won't be able to stop talking about the man's work. If you like to be outdoors or go running or especially bicycling, few things are more attractive than a girl on a bike :) And you should message me if you have a kind heart.
