EDIT: Removing any mention of politics.
I'm starting to think that I'm pathologically trusting... For instance, I'm bearing my soul to the internet on a dating site. So far it's been pretty fun, so I think I'm going to stick with it (being pathologically trusting).
EDIT: Less convoluted.
I would like to do post graduate work, but it's not really in the budget. Plus I have so much debt; mostly from the first round of schooling.
I play all different kinds of music (guitar and pipa, mostly) and I was once a fairly inspired visual artist, mostly working in ink and charcoal. I would like to be inspired again... I am not sure if the scorched-earth class war battlefield called Connecticut is really the place to find inspiration, but I suppose inspiration ultimately comes from within.
I am also good with my hands. I've been told I'm an adroit guitar player, although I've never really felt compelled to be a performer and no one ever uses the word 'adroit.' I mostly just enjoy it for its own sake, and don't have much interest in being a "rock star", although at some point in my teens I did. I also play pipa (a 4-string Chinese lute), and I'm an excellent typist, mostly because I type all day at work.
I'm pretty good at one on one strategy games. I'm a decent Go player (3k-6k on KGS-don't worry if you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's really cool. Trust me). I also lived with a really great chess player for a couple years in 2007-08 or so, and played lots of games with him, so some of his greatness rubbed off on me I'm sure. My chess skillz are probably a little faded by now, because I hardly play that much anymore (for lack of IRL opponents-I don't like to play chess on computers for some reason. Except BattleChess. That shit is classic!)
Moovees: "The God of Cookery", "Shaolin Soccer", "Heat", "The Taint", "A Scanner Darkly", "Tropic Thunder", "Boggy Creek II: The Legend Continues", "The Pumaman"
shows: "Game of Thrones", "Arrested Development", "Mr. Show with Bob and David", "Children's Hospital", "Transformers", MST3K (!!!)
music: Shpongle, Deadly Avenger, Luca Turelli, Rhapsody of Fire, Pantera (mostly just "Cowboys from Hell" ca 1989), Royce Da 59 (curveball!)
Also, witty things that I should've said hours ago.
Also, this might be better under the "utterly idiotic things that you really shouldn't say but might if you have no ability to filter your thoughts whatsoever" section, but I don't see that so I'll put it here: I've had sex before and I liked it a lot (many of the times). So... I may want to do it again... If you find that offensive or weird, then... umm, we can do other stuff together. Or not.
