Why am I so obsessed with myself and my own mannerisms? Why do I seek to understand more about myself through others? Why is it that the happiest part of anyone's day or most people is when they prepare to eat a meal? Why are dreams so WEIRD and this strange hyper reality that makes sense in its own alternate universe but has no grasp on actual reality? Why is it okay to have such a large gap between rich and poor?-Is it ok? Why is it that homeless people tend to have the most interesting stories and insights into the world? Why is it that some old people are super cool and others are so jaded, what happens in the course of a lifetime to change people or even break people in such ways? Why are first impressions so important- and at the same time so insignificant? Why are numerical symbols universal but linguistics and languages vary so drastically even with the slightest accents of various regions in the same countries? What does language say about a culture? How does language influence a society's perception?

My Interests, My Intrigue, My Window into the World
I am intrigued by myself- my hair, my identity, my background, my complex duality, my thought process. Yes it sounds vain, but if you're not interested in yourself than how interesting can life really be? Other things that interest me are FOOD, dreams, international development, the homeless, the elderly, crimes against humanity, immigration reform, my family, first generation American lifestyles, sound and lighting production, event planning, public speaking, children, interracial relationships, languages, first impressions, and more that doesn't come to mind right this instant.
