That about covers it. Soccer is amazing too. And puns. I like puns. I'll make this excessively clear throughout my profile.
But I don't see myself doing one thing for the rest of my life. I have ideas and hopefully momentum towards unifying my passions and my profession that I'm working on.
But experiences>material goods. There is a value- a premium- I put on a life spent having amazing conversations, attending concerts and museums and so on an so forth.
French is what I'm learning right now and after a stint in Paris and hopefully many more this will be a lifetime pursuit. I want to begin studying a Eastern Asian language soon too.
exercising, reading, reflecting, conversing, traveling.
trying to get my head around French and Hindi at the same time. finding that to be a bit of an ordeal.
consuming art, music, a fair deal of pollution.
I only really watch/care about one sport and that's soccer. My summer is booked to watch the World Cup. I'm also a Tottenham fan.
CURRENTLY READING: Steven Pinker's "The Language Instinct" and it's awesome. On a sort of linguistics roll right now.
Amartya Sen, Steven Pinker, Nassim Talib, Jared Diamond, Richard Dawkins, Focault, John McWhorter, Chomsky,
As far as fiction writers go- Gary Shteyngart, Ralph Ellison, Douglas Adams, Jack Kerouac. Still working my way up to the Russians.

I guess?), Minus the Bear Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Foals, Friendly Fires, Britpop (Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club, Editors, Bloc Party, Foals), Paradis, Jai Paul (so promising), Grizzly Bear, Neon Indian, LCD Soundsystem, Toro y Moi, Sasha, Minus the Bear, DIIV, soo much more.

Food: Mexican, Ethiopian, Italian, Sri lankan, Punjabi, South Indian, Vietnamese, Thai....I can just go ahead and list about every nation's comfort food I can possibly come up with.
Also language- speech acqusition and the sheer brilliance of speech, and how as a child of immigrants I code switch without rhyme or reason.
Consciousness in general fascinates me as do questions regarding it.
If you love The Room or can laugh at terrible movies.
I'm passionate, entertaining and considerate. I'm generally a good time, so much so that I enjoy hanging out with myself a lot too. Come hang out with us! I also have multiple personality disorder. Just kidding.
