Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.
I am... curious. Fascinated. I find the world innately intriguing. I love questioning and finding answers. People fascinate me. I love learning and reading. I think life is fun. I try to live my life joyfully and passionately. Hey, I only get this one chance, might as well enjoy it!
Generally I consider myself a serious person, one who enjoys listening to people more than talking. Friends however laugh at that. They consider me to be a lot of things but serious in everyday life. And quite talkative. I guess it depends on who I am with. And how many people are listening. Few things are as enjoyable as talking in front of a crowd. I also try to see the humor in things and take everything in good spirits.
I love traveling. Always staying in the same place is simply boring. I need to explore new places. Especially with my car. Love driving. I have a tendency to randomly decide to drive down an unknown road simply to know what I'll find. When I'm doing that you'll probably notice me turning the stereo way up and showing off my amazing karaoke skills. Somewhat amazing. So far the stereo never complained... Anyhow.
One of my favorite activities is dancing. And not only in clubs or ballrooms. Life's too much fun to be too stuck up In the middle of a store, in the middle of a street during the rain, next to some street performers, those all sound like great opportunities. But aren't as romantic as dancing slowly during sun set at the edge of a cliff or on a small bridge leading out into a lake. (Oh, and just in case: In my humble opinion, "grinding" doesn't qualify as dancing. Get a room.)
My most prized possession is my library. I spend a lot of time reading. And that time does not include magazines or novels. I have generally only read non-fiction books that I can learn something from. Occasionally I might throw in a book of Poetry, for example Leonard Cohen's Book of Longing, or a novel. When I read I have a typically get completely lost in what I'm doing. In other words, if I'm standing in front of a bookshelf you'll probably want to make sure I'm actually looking at you while talking to me because otherwise I might be reading and simply offer random responses (which actually led me get away with not listening for quite a while). I promise I'm not doing it on purpose.
I'm studying biology in a premed program. Currently I'm doing a semester abroad in Erlangen, Germany, until February, when I'll move on to the University of Groningen Medical Center in Holland for a research project before heading back to the states in Summer.
Anything else I can think of right now.... oh, I (try to) follow nosach Teman/Sephardi.
