My self-summary
I don't know. I leave this part blank on my resume. I like to hike. I like to read and listen to music, eat good food, have good conversations, meet interesting people, from any background. I try to be compassionate toward others and passionate about my work and my relationships. I like to have a full schedule- it keeps me better organized. I like things that are concrete- solutions not theories. I'm focused right now on finishing school and starting my new career, but that's a ways off.
What I’m doing with my life
I found something I could really see myself doing and now I'm pursuing further education to get there. I work at a behavioral health facility with people in acute distress from psychiatric illness. I feel right at home.
I’m really good at
Calming people down or agitating them, depending on what the circumstances are. Problem solving. Juggling many things at once(not physical though- that's not something I can do.) Listening. Cooking a tasty meal. Pushing forward. Making decisions. Leading the way. Looking out for my friends and coworkers. Speaking my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess it's my hair. Lots of comments about the salt and pepper look. I dyed it once when I was desperate to find a job and was willing to try anything. Probably won't do it again, but who knows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So many...

Books

I read a lot of nonfiction on a lot of different subjects, but mostly psychology, politics, crime and science. I like Longform.org for shorter nonfiction pieces. Right now, I'm reading strictly for school, but I always have two or three books on my Kindle that I'm in the middle of. Most recently read Hallucinations by Oliver Sacks; Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan; and The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Conan Doyle.

Movies & TV

Diversions for when I'm bored or just want to veg out. I like a lot of TV: Justified, Breaking Bad, The Americans, House of Cards, some British and other foreign TV shows, American Horror Story. I LOVE Arrested Development and Community. Curb Your Enthusiasm is really funny, too. I also like Game of Thrones, Fringe, Dr. Who and Boardwalk Empire. For movies, I like a lot of documentaries, sci-fi, dramas. Most movie comedies are too broad for my taste. Not so into romcoms, although I do like some. About a Boy comes to mind.

Music

Pretty much anything. Some hip hop, but not popular stuff. A lot of indie music right now: Frightened Rabbit, Little Dragon, Sleigh Bells. Some hard rock like Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age. Some old school rock like Guns and Roses and Metallica. Some classic stuff and some punk. Like I said, just about anything depending on my mood.

Food

Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Italian, American, French. Not so big on tofu. I have no problem eating animals.
I cooked professionally for a number of years, mostly high end Italian, but also made pizza, worked at a pub and in a steakhouse. Right now, I try to eat simply and healthily, but who can resist a burger and fries once in awhile? Not me.
