Life Philosophy

Be aware of who you are and why.
Don't do it if it hurts. And don't eat it if it smells sparkly.

I am...

IN LOVE WITH JARS AND JELLYFISH!!
And DNA and fish and fishtanks and boxes and puzzle boxes and squid and anything genetically engineered – including GloFish – and tea and rainbow cake and cooking and baking and creating and playing with broken glass and dancing and meditating and cleaning and black holes and white holes and gummies and candy and bracelet making and sumi-e and colors and decorating and good music and weird music and weird music videos and weirdness in general and toes and fingers and all phalanges and tiny things like elephants and giraffes and baby sea turtles and the sea(but not when it goes up my nose and makes me puke) and lights and lanterns and paper things like origami and puzzles and psychedelics and reading and glassblowing and hammocks and ham and Ponyo and imitating Ponyo and acting and air plants and carnivorous plants and California and Hawaii and Oregon and nostalgic feelings and trippy music and emotional music and writing and loving and life and everything. Oh, and coffee. :)

Quotes

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
― Plato

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.”
― Plato

“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
― Plato

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”
― Dr. Seuss

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
― Dr. Seuss

"Cyberman: Our technologies are compatible, though your design is less elegant.
Dalek Thay: Daleks have no concept of elegance!
Cyberman: This is obvious."
-Doctor Who, Doomsday

Music

Lately been craving Trip hop, Lounge and Trance but enjoy pretty much all music in the right environment.

Film & TV

Favorite are documentaries, well-plotted anime, and Sci-fi, I also enjoy horror movies and thrillers. Thought provoking flicks of any kind are also at the top of my list. I really enjoy the "What the fuck, why?" emotion that movies/shows can often give. I can't stand TV, so I'm not up to date on what gets played on that thought devourer.
