My self-summary
I used to have a really good self summary but then I changed it and now I don't remember what the old one used to be.

What I’m doing with my life
Working at a Peoria non-profit and loving every second of it.

Still trying to learn French after 3 years of failing horribly. C'est grave.
I’m really good at
Wasting time on the internet
Wasting even more time on the internet
History and International Relations.
Forgetting something I just said.
Oh, and history and international relations.
The first things people usually notice about me
You tell me. I've never noticed myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: Game of Thrones series; Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Series; The Great Gatsby; The Road by Cormac McCarthy; A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (spelled that correctly on the first try, booyah); Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series; Patriotism by Yukio Mishima; Dan Brown; The Kite Runner; anything by Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell or Albert Camus; any nonfiction by Robert Kaplan, Henry Kissinger; or any books about Asia.

Favorite Music: Coldplay, Coeur de Pirate, Muse, Black Keys, John Mayer, Radiohead, Jack Johnson, Imagine Dragons, AWOLNATION, Of Monsters and Men.

Favorite Food: Everything. Asian, first and foremost, but I love trying other ethnic foods. I've tried Laotian, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Mongolian, Indian, Pakistani, Afghani, Turkish, Greek, Lebanese, Ethiopian, Cajun, Caribbean, Indonesian, Halal (not an ethnicity, but still), French, English, Italian, and Mexican. If you know a good ethnic place that serves something I haven't listed, you will be my new favorite person.
The six things I could never do without
Books, a good beer/wine, Netflix, a bed, my computer, the internet, and a seventh option.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Game of Thrones, geopolitics in Northeast Asia, the future of American power, why I wasn't born with photographic memory, why so many people from Pennsylvania view my profile, why my cats absolutely must throw up on rugs/carpet/sheets instead of the hardwood floors, what more I can add to this information box, and Marion Cotillard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at an outdoor bar drinking a craft beer and enjoying conversation with great people.

Relaxing at home, drinking wine, and reading a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prefer Rom-Coms over almost any other movies.
I eat lemon slices whole, rind and all.
Bohemian Rhapsody annoys me.
You should message me if
You are a short brunette with a French accent. Who also acts. And who is also Marion Cotillard.

Or if messaging random guys on OKCupid is what you're in to.
