I'm often told I'm a sort of contradictory person - I have kind of conservative dating habits, but very liberal views. So you know, I'm not actually Jewish, but I find I'm frequently attracted to Jewish guys. While I'm not looking to convert, I am very curious about Judaism - one of my friends calls me a cheerleader. (I even like going to synagogue and I've picked up a few kosher habits.) I'm an academic-turned-writ er, applying to PhD programs, but still deciding between anthropology, comparative literature, and logic (education is good for the creativity). I'm passionate about the Oxford comma. I'm finding it difficult not to begin all of these sentences with "I."I love science - I used to study astronomy and geology, but now they're just hobbies. But I love science-y people and ideas - I think it's great to think about. I used to be a singer, and even though I'm not pursuing it or making money from it anymore, I still love it, and regularly sing in the shower=) And I'm a season ticket holder for the LA Opera, which has made my life better. I'm also pretty nerdy - I love going to Comic Con and comics in general. I'm a total foodie. And I absolutely love cinema - I have a master's in film studies. Period films (I'm a Jane Austen nut), sci-fi, action, fantasy, indies, horror (zombies!), avant garde - I love it all! In the end, I'm exploring life and I find that I love so much of it. The rain clouds, sand in my toes, the movement of my muscles, cool air in my lungs, tight harmony, soft fabrics, stars, rocks, water, fine wine, cheap tableware, the feel of a needle and thread piercing fabric, a spoon moving sauce in a pan, the arrangement of words to affect something within, stories that I am the better for hearing, images that I am the better for seeing. I often think I am the sum of what I have seen, so I try to see as much as I can and as different as it can be.
