bob dylan wrote his first five star album when he was 18. i am a failure.

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

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.

for some reason, i really like being near huge bodies of water. i'm really not sure why, but i feel much more comfortable if there's a lake or a river nearby, even if it's a half a mile away

i like being happy.

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 pretend to be able to speak chinese. people who don't know chinese believe me. people who do know chinese are generally too polite to tell anyone otherwise.

my favorite popsicle color is green.

i'm very proud of my belgian nose.

'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.
