I'm basically an unexpected smorgasbord of everything I've come across and been influenced by, so I keep growing and changing over the years. The mixed heritages and cultural upbringing, a reinforced education, surprise experiences and an unorthodox lifestyle has helped shape me. That funny looking kid you met in middle school who spoke softly and read all the time? He learned to longboard, earns a living by being social with customers and got promoted because of his "dynamite personality" (0_o!) . Good thing all that reading taught him random facts to impress his customers, and apparently the owners of the restaurant =p
I go after what I want in life, even if I know it's near impossible. I'll go at it for as long as it needs until it gets done. Half of the lesson a lot of the time is just getting there anyway. I'm very thankful that I've had the opportunity to learn so much in this lifetime. I still have so much to learn!
I'm also slowly but surely putting myself through school, and continue my commitment to being an all-time nerd. Trying to continue my spiritual growth and education in this year as well.
I enjoy independent and foreign films quite a bit, and I'm actually quite illiterate when it comes to American culture regarding film. My favorite movie is probably Garden State, though Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain might be tied for first place. Paris je t'aime, Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dan in Real Life, Pan's Labyrinth, The Family Stone among other more obscure ones that I'm too tired to make a list of at the moment. Blood and ice cream trilogy of course, as well as Spaced, which isn't really a film but whatever, same people. So yeah, I haven't seen a huge amount of movies, but I'm not completely ignorant either. At least I'm trying to catch up.
My likes in music? Mostly I listen to stuff like Coldplay, The Killers, Shiny Toy Guns, Motion City Soundtrack, OneRepublic, Matchbox Twenty, The Faint and the Garden State Soundtrack. Anything that sounds along those lines. Nothing too wild. I can listen to a lot of music, and I have some very varied stuff on my computer, but these are my staples I guess.
I like food. No, scratch that. I love food. I can be found trying a new restaurant on my days off. I'm also a sushi lover, so I'm always up for a sushi date.
I've also finally started cooking real meals, actually making ingredients from scratch. I've always loved food and the idea of cooking, but had never felt confident enough to do so until now. And what do you know, I'm not half bad! That addiction to the Food Network when I had time worked out. Oh I guess the cooking Mexican mother helped too =p
2) A writing utensil of sorts
4) Edible nourishment
6) My family and best friends (they aren't things but hey, I they're up there for ANY list)
If that's cheating, then
6) My intellect
However, it saddens me to have to add this but due to repeat offenders, I ask that you please keep it classy and be respectful if you want to message me. It will increase your persona points automatically. Complete sentences are a definite plus.
So if you're a young man with a healthy sense of pride in who he is, have some goals in life and you think we would get along, feel free to contact me =)
