My self-summary
I am billion year old stardust, just like you.

"Like an iteration of an inter-nested fractal, the (macro)cosmic, collective process that is happening on the world stage reflects and reveals itself on the inner, personal plane [of the individual] at the same time, as well as vice versa. Different dimensional reflections of each other, the outer collective process and the inner personal process, are beyond interconnected--they are the same process simply explicating itself in different dimensions of our being simultaneously. The microcosm (our inner, personal process) and macrocosm (the world process), directly, instantaneously, and reciprocally affect each other, as the two are one and the same. This means that the way to effect real change in the world is to transform ourselves by becoming more conscious, as, holographically speaking, the world is enfolded within us while at the same time, 'We Are The World'"
-Paul Levy, The Way of the Shaman

There is more to me than my pretentious new agey spiritual worldview as quoted above, but this quote kind of sums up the way I view the world and the universe at the deepest level/I am too lazy to summarize myself
What I’m doing with my life
85% = getting lost in my mind (topics range from the nature of the universe as a whole to what it would be like to walk through the forest of my arm hairs if I were small enough, and a lot of things in between)

10% = riding the bus, riding my bike, going to work, doing the work, coming home from work, walking to the beach, sitting at the beach, staring at the beach, staring at the mountains, walking home from the beach, reading informing articles, reading useless articles, reading books, bouldering, going out dancing (to psytrance mostly), dancing in my home (to psytrance mostly), dancing at the bus stop (to psytrance mostly), trying to say hello to every human I walk by, volunteering with a local environmental group of concerned citizens, hiking, getting ready to go back to school, going to music festivals, sometimes watching movies, sometimes drawing, sometimes painting, OH FRIENDS, they exist too - hanging out with friends, doing a fun variety of activities with friends (mostly what I've already listed above), doing nothing with friends, talking with friends, texting friends, not talking with friends, doing yoga, teaching yoga, meditating, trying to cultivate skills of meditative trance/self-hypnosis/shamanic journeying/astral projection

5% = feeding/bathing self, cleaning, buying groceries, etc
I’m really good at
looking at the world upside down (both literally and figuratively)
transcending my body through dance
philosophizing everything
workin' with kiddies (I work with kids with autism)
The first things people usually notice about me
my calming energy (I don't know if that's the first thing, and probably isn't ... but that's the thing people tell me about most)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
some books: one hundred years of solitude, the world according to garp, the world is as you dream it, the shock doctrine, slaughterhouse-five, coraline, neverwhere, interview with a vampire..

and just in case I forgot to put it on the list: psytrance.
The six things I could never do without
learning, good company, music(+dancing), laughter, hope, yoga
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the universe, the multiverse, existence, quantum physics, social issues, food, politics, economics, yoga, eastern religions, all religion/spirituality, death, philosophy, feminism, shamanism, animism, other isms, oneness, how I can better myself, how I can accept myself, how I can better the world, how I can best see the world and situations from another's perspective
On a typical Friday night I am
"I'm NOT saying we are cats on acid being studied by the CIA. I'm JUST saying it's a POSSIBILITY"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I feel sad.
You should message me if
The object to your immediate left is purple.
