I am goal-oriented, energetic, intelligent, and beautiful. I'm mostly working as a software engineer by day, getting a graduate degree in computer science by night. So much to learn! On one hand, most of the time I find my work interesting. On the other hand, the work itself is a means, not an end - the ultimate goal is to create a foundation of stability in my life so that from this strength I have the freedom to give support to the ones I love. As for my hobbies, pastimes, and other distractions, well, my interests have changed a lot in the last few years, and whatever I describe here, I will likely come up with something new by the time you're reading this. Some activities that have stuck with me for a long time are yoga, weightlifting, foreign languages, and storytelling (that's getting up on stage at an open mic and spouting little fictional monologues, fables, and folktales). And, of course, much of my free time is for hanging out with my family. And some is for hanging out with my friends.
