My self-summary
Don't apologize for online dating.... we're both caught with our pants down!

If I could only eat Japanese food for the rest of my life, I would be 100% satisfied. If you can talk about how cool primates are with me, you win 100 points.

I studied art history in college, but my first and only true love is cultural anthropology. I also like Anthropologie.

If professional sports didn't exist, I don't think I would notice.....

Unlike a lot of people on here, I feel like I am getting less and less pretentious as I get older.

I hate the name I chose for this. But, considering I signed up for it using one hand while lying in bed, it could (should) have been hgcft5fiulk.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to California from New York/Brooklyn in February of 2013. I lived in LA until moving to Monterey in August to start school (if you are reading this during the summer of 2015, I've been in Central and South America the whole time). No offense to anyone who loves LA, but I see it as a suburban hellscape of the worst kind. NorCal is much more my style.

Right now, I'm getting my masters in teaching ESL. In New York I taught English as a second language after teaching in China for two years post-college. The fact that I could move abroad again in a year or two is a little exciting. Though I think my family and friends would kill me.
I’m really good at
getting along with anyone. pouring beer. reading people and books. intuition. making friends. keeping friends. making out. napping. traveling. impressing parents. depressing my own parents. interviews. getting mildly injured and/or sick.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I rolled out of bed at 1pm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh man.... Country Driving, Half the Sky, The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Factory Girls, Random Family, The History of Love, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gran Torino, The Pianist, Parks and Recreation, Doughnuts, Asian food, Radiolab

I also really like: obscure facts about different cultures, monkey news (10 points if you know what that is), anything related to international development, social activism, urban planning, and my friend Olivia.

I'm going to go out on a limb here..........
You may have noticed a certain lack of music. I'm pretty sure if legally tone deaf were real, like legally blind, I would qualify. Besides being a life long fan of Van Morrison and Simon and Garfunkel, I can't define my musical taste. I'm too embarrassed too list what I have on my iphone right now because I haven't found anything new I like in a LONG time. But I am VERY open for suggestions.

Besides, I'm too busy listening to Radio Lab, This American Life, or Stuff You Should Know.
Six things I could never do without
Sleeping in later than you, sexual tension, podcasts, non-fiction, plane travel, edamame.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Other cultures, the weekend, how to stop human trafficking, verbs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends at a dive bar or cozied up with some wine watching a movie or three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I cuddle with a frozen bottle of water in the summer.
You should message me if
You've gotten this far?
