My self-summary
After calling Vancouver, Seattle and Shanghai home, I'm back after adventures and tribulations that seem to have been an entire other life, which is continually a weird process reconciling the two. I'm an ENFP, if that matters to you, meaning I'm a tireless idealist that finds meaning in the most mundane and understated aspects of living. I'd say I am the holy trinity, pardon my sacrilege, of open mindedness, charisma, and downright weirdness (which has always been used as a compliment). I love nature, the idea of superheros (across myth, literature and comics), clean/green living, a perspective or idea different than my own, and above all a time well spent with loved ones~~
What I’m doing with my life
Working towards my education in nutrition for the hopes to one day severe the role that big business [I'm looking at you USDA/FDA] play in making a large, family size bag of (insert generic junk food) more affordable than organically grown fruits and vegetables. We are what we eat, and the future looks grim if we don't revisit the basics: what is real food and how that can be the only medicine we need.
(Could talk about this forevaaaaaaa so if you don't know what to use to start a conversation ... I can't help you out)
I’m really good at
I am freakishly and somewhat annoyingly good at recalling dialogue from movies and TV shows. It's not even the popular lines that I remember; it is often very obscure things that people take as gibberish. I'm also good at seeing and, occasionally, arguing both sides to most issues.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. Beard? All the trinkets? You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Books:
Brave New World, LOTR, On the Road, Perks of Being A Wallflower, Crime and Punishment, and most of the ancient Greek and Roman stuff. Herodotus is a no go though.
Love Beetjuice. (My home from school jam in my youth) Love most superhero movies, LOTR, Harry Potter, things with Kevin Spacey. Most Wes Anderson movies. Specifically: The Usual Suspects, American Beauty, Seven, Running With Scissors, Moonrise Kingdom, Star Wars,Saving Private Ryan, Goodfellas, The Prestige, Weeding Crashers, Zoolander, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and many more. Movies are amazing. I will watch most things and surprisingly enough find value in most of them, ergo not a movie snob.
Mad Men, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Spartacus, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead.
Classic Rock through and through: Boston, Steve Miller Band, CCR, Steppenwolf, Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Kansas, Guns and Roses etc ... Also have to rep the Shins as an Abq native. I like Hip Hop like Missy Elliot, Common, Blue Scholars, and even Niki Minaj. I really like to listen to whatever I find.
Vegetarian. SPICY. Middle eastern, Indian, Thai, and Mexican. But Chinese food is king 鱼香茄子,地三鲜,担担面,干煸四季豆, Yet to find anywhere that doesn't serve the food deep fried and glazed though T__T
The six things I could never do without
A good story (person/movie/novel/etc)
Lazy days
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Existential things. HOW CAN BROWN RICE POSSIBLY BE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN WHITE?!?! What it would be like to be either a wizard, jedi, superhero, or a bender. My future and why it is really so hard for people to be honest and get along.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to think that no two Friday nights are alike but really it's the same as everyone else: Going out or staying in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an atrocious speller :/
