My self-summary
Everything in moderation, including excess

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
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get the most out of this beautiful city, further my education, and appreciate the little things.
I’m really good at
Intelligent conversation, drinking vino, numbers, reading, making things i do on accident seem purposeful, cutting through bs

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
Baby blues
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music
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.

Books
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.

Movies
Not a huge movie buff but here are a few that I really enjoy:
Fight club, Drive, Grandmas Boy, Sin City, Memento, Dogma

Tv
Once again not a huge fan of television but i really enjoy the daily show, south park, game of thrones, and sons of anarchy
The six things I could never do without
Reading material
The outdoors
Good food
My friends
Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life ie. why are we here where do we go and why is it so hard? (bonus points if you can name that song)

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

Women

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)
On a typical Friday night I am
Out enjoying the city with my friends or my sister.

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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know way too many Excel shortcut keys.

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
You should message me if
You can carry on an interesting/intelligent conversation (the two are not necessarily mutually exclusive)
