My self-summary
Bay Area born and raised. I notice I have a hard time describing myself other than specific things I've done. Here's a try at doing it different.
I'm a person that really tends to the moment. I try to notice as much as possible out of every engagement. I gravitate to social interaction. My BA was in Sociology and it fed my ability to describe the world I could already see.
I act silly but not recklessly. I'm one of those still muddling through, not the straight and narrow/clear path that some are lucky to have.
What I’m doing with my life
Now that I've been home for a bit I've finally started doing some things that I feel are really contributing to my experience, physical/ mental and social growth.
I work in the mental health field over in SF while participating in a martial arts club in the east bay. I've just been given an official position as the summer camp coordinator for all martial arts programs. Never had any professional experience in either field but I crave to take full advantage of this fun opportunity to work hard and really just be in that capacity to help and direct people.
Despite the realization I've found some things in front of me I can commit a lot of my energy towards I love meeting , and usually getting along with, different styles of people.
I've realized this is more then enough to read.
I’m really good at
Being patient.
Cooking... Your good at what you enjoy.
I'm also pretty athletic. I like a little competition.
reading the future.
Noticing things that I don't have the answer for.
The first things people usually notice about me
From my guess I'd say polite, talkative , hungry.
Does facial hair count? I'm sure, if you like that sort of thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I can only remember some more recent ones.
Be honest, have you finished a real book in the past month? That's more than most people in an entire year. I recently read "How we decide" very good book; Then I read "The power of habit"; "The art to stress free productivity". All of these books payed attention to habits. Guess I'm trying to be more productive. I bet you can relate.

Auntie Mame; James Cagney;Some like it hot; the matrix; pride and prejudice (British); original Pippy Long Stocking; lots of crappy action movies. Just saw "troll hunter"(Norwegian), Kungfu. Fantasy.

Tv shows
Daily Show; Stephen Colbert; futurama; game of thrones; walking dead; cartoons, Attack on TItan (if you like anime that's AWESOME)

The most important part because I can eat while reading or watching tv.
I like more food then I dislike. So lets start with that (not to be negative).

I won't eat again...
Skewered and grilled chicken heart.(Thailand)
Sea cucumber (Korea)

I don't like BUT will eat again.....
Live octopus (Korea)...it makes it ok with spicy sauce or sesame oil with salt.
Pigs ear, fish stomach, field rat, live shrimp.
(all in Thailand). It was all very good just I like it more when someone else makes this. Sometimes not seeing things cook makes it easier to eat.

Food I like to prepare/ cook.
Thai Green Curry (spicy); Raw Papaya salad (salty,/savory); tomato/ basil/ mozzarella sandwich; things with pesto (home made of course); any type of soup or stew. Crock pots. BBQ, grilled veggies.
The six things I could never do without
Friends - the desire to meet others and learn what they're willing to teach me. What an opportunity!
Travel (+food) - (garden?)
Fulfilling work
Deeper meaning
Exercise and competition
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can work more, practice more, go out more, travel more. You get the idea. What my schedule is for next week.
How to make this site work better. For instance understanding people. It's now clear that when someone answers your introduction and/or questions about them with another question back to you with nothing else of substance then they are most likely not going to be interested at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I'm likely working, relaxing at home, or late exercise and then out somewhere having a drink to unwind. I wanna go dance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I drive a pickup truck.
You should message me if
You feel like hiking, walking to have food and a drink.
Ready to test your boundaries, whatever that means. Just sounds good.
