Edward has not received any gifts yet
I live in Austin Texas
I'm Filipino, first generation. We came here when I was five. I finally received my US citizenship when I was 16. I'm 33 now.
I really like 80's music, some karaoke but I'm not great at it. I'm sure that's sort of the point ^_^ I like things both silly and serious.
I'm a Pisces and an Iron Monkey. (west/east zodiac signs) I don't really care much for signs, because I like to get to know people individually.
In my younger life I was a US Marine, and I'm a calm ordered person. I prefer being fun, peaceful and observant. Get to know me, and you'll probably find I'm not what you expect. I have more stuffed toy animals than weapons, and I prefer hugs over hurts.
I cook, pretty much all types of food. I like to write, read, run, and workout.
The most interesting things to me are exploring what people have behind their eyes.
I also really enjoy thought provoking films, good music, and all out happy childlike fun. I don't watch TV, just a few select shows recommended by friends.
Reach out, get to know me. I'd like to get a chance to know you.
---oh yeah, I'm also on tumblr (skitterabout)
I’ve been off the site for a bit, but I figured I’d put a little something down before I get back to my holiday grind. The link above is something I came across today on tumblr. I think it will become my free-association background music. As I write, as I think about the salient points of the season.
We spend our time on those things…Continue
I've taken some time off from this space because sometimes life gets in the way. Work stuff mainly, and thinking a lot. Autumn is my favorite season. I usually take a week of to fast. I see it as my yearly mental detox where I get to focus on my life at different layers. Personal, professional, spiritual and all points in between....
More on that later....
A few folks asked if I was East Indian. I've never gotten that one before but I'll add that to my list ^_^
Most people don't know what I am, and I often use it to my advantage. I like to cloak and exist like a fly on the wall. It gives me a better view of peoples assumptions. I've passed as so many different things, but people only really see me as Filipino when I'm with my mom. All of the sudden, they "see" it, and it's like I just stepped out of an MC Escher…Continue
Race does matter, but there is so much more to say about how we get our messages about race. How we are represented in media, and how we interact with each other needs a little focus.
All the non-verbal things we do mean more than just the things we say. I actually woke up from a dream today where I was pondering all this at length. Coming out of the dream, I thought of the following four states:
Pre-contact, contact, non-contact, and post-contact.
I know, race…Continue
