I have a tuxedo cat named Zero. I use her to pick up babes whenever possible, but sometimes she doesn't help because she is an alcoholic unlike my pal's tuxedo cat, who is pretty awesome.
Beyond that, I'm relatively new to the Valley and Northridge. I moved out here for school and unfortunately the social circles at class & work aren't very tight. So I usually end up visiting friends outside the valley and still haven't been able to try much of what the valley offers. In fact, the Valley seems pretty damn boring up to this point, which I hope isn't really true. So this is where you, lovely okcupid.come in: show me some of your favorite things around here. I've got high standards for the people I find interesting, but if I think you're worth meeting up with I promise you'll enjoy the company!
I am Surly, Sweet, and the Kwisatz Haderach
This semester involves teaching PSY 101, tutoring autistic kids and hopefully starting a thesis. It's tons of fun but zomg is it exhausting.
And I tend to get this dynamic where people who first meet me in person tend to be like "aww, you're not nerdy/introverted" like it's a bad thing. While here it comes off like I just slithered out of my parent's basement. Apparently I need to balance things better.
B) Gilliam, Kubrick, Miyazaki, Hertzfeldt, Pixar, Cronenberg, The Aristocrats, Amelie, Ricki-oh: The Story of Ricki, American Psycho, Pan's/Bowie's Labyrinth. Sci-fi, comedy, animation and dark subject matter however it's presented. Like books, I enjoy most genres, but I've got a soft spot for this sort.
C) I usually listen to rock stations, even though I pretty much semi-dislike them all. I mean, they never play Bob Log III on the radio, so obviously they have no fucking taste. I still miss Indie 103.1. Tool, Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, SOAD, NIN, Godspeed;You? Black! Emperor%, QOTSA, The Faint, Boards of Canada, Four Tet, MC Frontalot, downbeat, random electronica, classic rock. Anything that doesn't suck, for the most part. I've been listening to a bunch of Royksopp and The Knife lately, I can't tell whether I' doing it ironically, or because I actually like it. I <3 loud, angry stuff but I've been laying off cuz I'm sick of the hearing loss.
D) While I'm a big fan of asian food, there's very little I don't like. I like to try new things as often as I can. I tend to cook for myself on account of being a broke-ass student who likes to cook. I also dig craft beers, which I really wish didn't clash so much with gym.
I REALLY want to start hiking again, and I've finally gotten Sunday's off to do so! :) I spent most of high school backpacking, and sorely miss it now that everyone's too busy drinking to go camping. If you're a backpacker/camper I'd LOVE to hear from you.
Also, OKC took away my "more kinky" medal and added some boring ones. This hurts more than I'm willing to admit.
