My self-summary
How's it going, stranger?

I’m from Philadelphia, born and raised (Not really, I was born in China but immigrated when I was a baby – close enough).
I studied Neuroscience in Pittsburgh, and minored in music, and I'm currently living in Philadelphia.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working in research at Jefferson. In my spare time, you can find me volunteering at the Philly VA Medical Center, where the staff are abnormally friendly. If you ever go to war, these guys are something to look forward to.

Occasionally I enjoy harassing my friends to go watch movies or eat. Or sleeping. Naps are the best.

I'm basically trying to be this guy eventually:
I’m really good at
...solving puzzles and figuring things out. I’m also pretty good at playing the viola, hitting a mid-range jump shot, staying awake long into the night for gaming / Netflix / anime marathons, and eating large quantities of food in one sitting.

I've also been told that I'm a very good listener. :)
The first things people usually notice about me how tall I am for an Asian. And then they ask if I play basketball. To which I of course respond yes. Then they make some sort of comment about Yao Ming, to which I smile or laugh. Guys that watch the NBA sometimes mention other asian basketball players, which actually impresses me. I suppose we could skip that during our first conversation :). Or not, if you prefer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books – Ender’s Game, Jurassic Park (way better than the movie), And the Mountains Echoed, Don Quixote

Movies – Inglourious Basterds, Toy Story 3, Good Will Hunting. I'm pretty into animated movies, so anything Disney, Pixar, or Miyazaki is a win in my book.

Shows – Breaking bad, The Wire, Attack on Titan, Rick and Morty, Better Call Saul

Music – Dubstep, Pop, Classical. *I like a wide variety of music – though usually only 1 or 2 songs from any particular artist
(ipod teaser)

Food – All the foods. I'll try anything once. And probably a second or third time too. I half-dream of being a food critic some day. Not a very picky eater. I love a good cheesesteak. And gotta love Chinese food. And indian food. I could go on but you get the idea haha.
Six things I could never do without
-Alarm Clocks, since I would never be able to wake up before noon without them
-That black cat that’s always wandering around my house making me wonder whether black cats are really unlucky or not. He/she’s kinda cute too.
-Google Navigation on my phone
-My 2 GB iPod shuffle, with each song personally selected
-The riddles of the universe (What happens to something that enters a black hole?!?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...the brain – I studied it for 4 years and still don’t know how it works.
...NBA stats and player movement for fantasy basketball during the year. Go Sixers!
...thought provoking Reddit threads.
On a typical Friday night I am
… either hanging out with friends at a bar or someone’s place causing some sort of mischief, or playing video games overcompetitively. I could also possibly be watching a new show on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
During a school trip in middle school, I lost a binder full of pokemon cards which I collected over at least 2 years. Probably the worst mistake of my adolescent life. I was a sad little boy for a while after that. Damn it all - it was probably worth one or two hundred dollars at least.
You should message me if
-you have hobbies / a direction in life that you're passionate about
-you share a love for all things disney and pixar.
-you enjoy having philosophical debates about the world or about the human mind
-you read something you like and want to chat or hang out. :)

For the gamers, I'm more RTS/strategy these days, though I did have a very long RPG part of my life.
