I'm married and have a daughter. No, I'm not on here cheating -- my husband and I just have an open relationship. No-strings-attached fun times are cool, but I also like to get to know people and make some new friends!
I also design jewelry, t-shirts, and accessories to sell at fleas and stuff. It gets busy!
My lifelong passion, though, is nature and travel. I'm a big-time fan of anything that has to do with wildlife and zoology.
I also am good at listening to and sharing stories. I love listening to other peoples' travel-related stories in particular. Physical stuff I'm good at? Swimming! And hiking. I can't wait til the summer, can you tell? :)
And of course, there are creative things I'm good at, like illustration, cooking, and baking.
Some contemporary books I've enjoyed lately and over the years have been by (fiction) Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Phillip Pullman, (nonfiction and essay) David Sedaris, John Krakauer, Lac Su, Howard Zinn, Jay Kirk, Anne Fadiman and Mary Roach.
I grew up reading stories by Ernest Thompson Seton, which were one of the things that made me into a nature nerd...and the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle.
Movies: Again, not that knowledgeable when it comes to classics, but I do love them; particularly ones that are visually well-executed. Lately I enjoyed The Life of Pi, The Master, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Melancholia, The Orphanage, Princess Mononoke, and Pan's Labyrinth. Some of my absolute favorite movies have been by Tarsem Singh. The Fall, in particular, is a masterpiece.
I love documentaries and indie movies as well; there are way too many I love to list them. I do enjoy a fun movie now and again! Anchorman or Jurassic Park, anyone?
TV: Lately I'm addicted to RuPaul's Drag Race. Also Breaking Bad/Better Call Saul and House of Cards. Past shows I've loved have been The IT Crowd (and everything done by the cast -- Snuffbox, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Mighty Boosh...)
Surprise, surprise -- my hero is Sir David Attenborough, and I am obsessed with all of his nature documentaries.
Music: The list will be too long. I have a super eclectic taste, anywhere from hip-hop (old-school AND new-school, thank you very much) to indie, to electro, to musical theater. Yes, I do love love karaoke.
Food: I HAVE NO LIMITS. Except maybe raw onions and celery. I can be picky about stuff I've tried already, but I'd try anything once.

3. A sketchpad
4. Good food
5. Summer (the season)
6. My phone, due to my shit sense of direction
When I go out: KARAOKE! Drinks, dancing, all that fun stuff.
Oh, and if you have an Asian fetish (as in, you see me not as an individual but as a representative of my race) please don't contact me.
