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

i am truly fascinated by trains. i think they are beautiful and magnificent. the fact that steam can power thousands of tons of steel blows my mind. if i had my way, i'd travel by train for the rest of my life.

i love my iPhone. if i feel sad, i hold it in my arms and i feel better.

if you ever want me to get angry, use the words 'i' and 'me' improperly. example: "he told john and i..."
comma misuse, really bothers me too.

i don't eat meat. but i eat fish. and dairy. so to say i'm a half-assed vegetarian would be an understatement. but i often do just to avoid the whole explanation.

'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.

my iphone is currently running 4.2!

if "peter pan" had been written around now, they wouldn't have said a fairy dies every time someone says they don't believe in fairies." they would have said "some good in this world dies every time someone uses internet explorer." there are few things that aggravate me more than microsoft internet explorer. i try really hard not to judge people, but if you use IE, i can't help it. please start using a real browser

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.
