My self-summary
Shy. Curious. Pessimistic yet full of wonder. INFP.

Longtime introvert. Recent convert to the Oxford comma.

Too old not to get excited about rain and roads, Egyptian ruins, our first kiss.

Feminists to the front of the non-existent line. Bonus points if you like reading (bonus points redeemable for mini candy bars and/or large hammers for smashing the patriarchy).
What I’m doing with my life
Defying Asian stereotypes as a freelance copywriter (suck it, math).

Expanding my cooking repertoire (recent successes include eggplant parm and blueberry basil sauce for breakfasty carbs).

Writing parenthetical statements (hooray).
I’m really good at

Overthinking things.
Wait, no.
Damn it.

Also, being wildly inconsistent at bowling. It's a great source of shame for my family.
The first things people usually notice about me
"This dude likes cardigans and Converse." This dude does, indeed, like cardigans and Converse.

"This dude has an orange cat." My secret is Archie and my slapdash lint roller skills.

"This dude is short." My secret is being short. I am super good at it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Penelopiad > The Odyssey, Neil Gaiman, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Raymond Chandler, Margaret Atwood, Asking for It, Lincoln by David Herbert Donald.

Movies: The Princess Bride, LOTR, Amelie, Some Kind of Wonderful, The Sting, The Magnificent Seven, Inception, Wes Anderson flicks.

TV Shows: Silicon Valley, The Handmaid's Tale, Sports Night, Top Chef, Orphan Black (rooting for you, Felix), The Expanse, Futurama, The West Wing, Terriers. Fuck Game of Thrones and its fixation on rape.

Music: I love my emo the way I mistrust my feminism: second fucking wave, man. Also, indie, punk, post-hardcore, pop, motown, classic rock. Lately it's all Sorority Noise, old Jade Tree Records bands, Julien Baker, and Iron Chic.

Food: Potatoes, BBQ, tacos, all of the breakfast, ginger ale, and tofu. I have a tender, tender love with my slow cooker.
Six things I could never do without
- friends and family
- rapid-fire, hilarious conversations
- hockey (Let's Go Rangers!)
- motherfucking EMPATHY, guys
- laughter
- my guitars
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to eat next.
Story ideas I never seem to write down and explore fully.
The person I could be, if I put in more effort.
On a typical Friday night I am
Volunteering, getting dinner with friends, or being my needy cat's pillow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a baby I ate so many mashed carrots that my palms and soles turned orange. Get it together, kid. Diversify.
You should message me if
You're sincere, kind, and cool with cats.

Let's go to a used bookstore and pick out a book for each other? That would be the best. Or we could go bowling or volunteering. Those are also the best.
The two of us
