Might sound trite, but I recognize the duality of human beings and how we all are oxymorons in our own way. I tend to see the "good" in others, but I always root for the bad guys/gals in movies. I find humor in most things and avoid taking myself too seriously, but take great pride in my self-application and hard-work. I disdain hedonism and excess but at times am indulgent. I am cynical towards most things, but tend to have an optimistic outlook of the future.I am tolerant and tilt to the left politically and socially, but enjoy low brow jokes on stereotypes.
