i'm very proud of my belgian nose.

i like computers. well, more specifically, i like apple computers. if i had a zillion dollars, i'd invest a lot of it in apple.

'tis i, THE lowly peon! i am a computer geek for a ginormous manufacturing company based in houston. houston is surely not my favorite place on earth, but the company is soon sending me to china! i am very excited about this. i like apple computers, and i like web development. i like good music. if you're curious about specifics, just know that no one has better musical taste than i, unless, of course, it is identical. i'm a big sap for cheeesy love songs. i also like good movies. people tend to disagree with me about what movies are good. i'm also a sucker for sappy love movies. i have an idea of my "best self" (to use ethan hawke's words in before sunset), and sadly, nearly every aspect of that "best self" conflicts with every other aspect. thus, my mind tends to be all over the place. i like to think i'm a jack of all trades, and i'm surely a master of none. and just remember: the sun's not yellow; it's chicken.

i think it's a shame that most americans really believe that the word "atheist" is synonymous with "evil". just because we don't believe in some mystical being doesn't mean we're bad people.
and religious freedom does not mean freedom between various forms of christianity.

i often use the term baseball to disguise the topic of sex. it is also my default conversational piece when i want to change the current topic.

i play guitar. i could not bring my guitar to china, but i hope to find one while i'm here. playing my guitar makes me happy.

there are two facts that i am trying my best to accept, but still break my heart:

  • i will never be an old chinese man
  • i will never be able to grow a beard
in time, i hope will be able to come to accept this.

I write and file TPS reports for a living.

a wise man once told me not to trust anyone with well manicured facial hair. i am twenty-four, and this has proved to be very among the wiser things anyone has ever told me.

i genuinely think i'd be happier if i never had to use microsoft windows ever again.
