I'm a walking contradiction, equally at home in the office in a suit as I am barefoot in the park, tho I prefer the latter. I love the beach/forest/nature but sometimes nothing beats the city. I love the occasional trip Vegas but try my hardest to avoid conspicuous consumption. an avid reader who's also a bit of a tech nerd...you get the picture
Also pointing out the crazy things we as a society/species do in an irreverent and humorous manner.
Also making myself laugh, I'm pretty good at making other people laugh, but I'm really good at making myself laugh.
Reggae, hip hop, dubstep, classic rock, alternative music from the 90s/early 2000s, classical...pretty much everything though I'm not a fan of most country or pop.
I absolutely love to read, as a result this might take a while so I'm going leave it for a later date. Plus my sister had stolen the majority of my good books from me, one at a time over the last decade or so. It has gotten so bad I can't remember half the books I've read. Here's a sample:
Siddhartha, On the Road, Villa Incognito, The Temptation of Innocence, When Genius Failed, Freakenomics, The Prince, Children of Men, Utopia, Heart of Darkness, Game of Thrones series, Hells Angels, The Problems of Philosophy, The Communist Manifesto...And that's just whats on my top shelf. As you can see it pretty much runs the gamut.
Not a huge movie buff but here are a few that I really enjoy:
Fight club, Drive, Grandmas Boy, Sin City, Memento, Dogma
Once again not a huge fan of television but i really enjoy the daily show, south park, game of thrones, and sons of anarchy
How to reconcile my passion for my industry (finance) with my desire to be a socially/environmentally responsible inhabitant of this planet. The industry as a whole can be very selfish and I need to figure out how i can excel in the industry(I'm kind of competitive) while sticking to my principles.
How to get more paid time off from work/ convince my boss to let me "work" from home
The inherent inefficiencies in our political/judicial/governmental systems
Why the sharks can never preform in the playoffs
How to convince my landlord to let me get a dog (I've settled on volunteering at an animal shelter for now)
Staying in and enjoying a good book/movie after a long week at work.
Road tripping my way out of the congestion that is the bay area
Working far too late for a Friday night
Or 100 other things, typical is such a boring word, one that i hope can't be used to describe me or my life.
I have at least one tattoo most people think is really stupid
I might be addicted to coffee
I played competitive chess in elementary school
