Seeking: Female 23 - 34
1.) I have a tendancy to look at things from right to left. I have no idea why, but when I scan a page full of stuff, its always right to left. 2.) I daydream a lot. Seriously a lot. Like at any given moment if I'm not obviously concentrating on something i'm probably daydreaming. 3.) I think about driving (including daydreaming, and sleep dreaming) way too much. I like driving through my hometown (Great Falls) late at night. When I drive through the backroads at 3am, I feel an odd mixture of nostalgia (because I do it a lot), calm, and adrenaline. I am also thankful that I'm not dead yet from doing this so often with my car(s) in such disrepair. 4.) I value my friends and family more and more everyday. Though this sounds a bit campy and sappy (eww); I've learned that I enjoy nothing more than to relax with friends and family. 5.) I have a lot of different ambitions, and I don't think that I have enough time left in my life to pursue half of them. 6.) I want to be a rockstar, and I think the closest I came to that was when I was DJ'ing in chicago. Music has always been a large part of my life since I was young. I soak up music like a dry sponge. 7.) I want to take a year off from everything and go to Tokyo and study judo at the Kodokon (http://www.kodokan.org) for a year. 8.) I have a love hate relationship with Japan. I always want to go there, but once I'm there for more than 2 weeks, I also feel like I need to get out. Between 2004~2007 I was in Japan 7 times (holy crap!) but my japanese still sucks. 9.) Is my number. Born 9 - 9 - 81 (which is 9*9, and 8+1=9). Graduated in 99. My last name (koo) is a homonym for 9 in korean. I have a wierd compulsion to add up numbers and letters to reach a number between 0~9. For example, my street address is 401, and apt number is 1201. I add them all up ( 4 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 0 + 1 = 9(YESSSS!!!)). If the number goes over 9, i add the two numbers to come up with the single one. Its totally wierd and another thing that I do without knowing why. 10.) I want to speak foreign languages well. I have a start in Japanese, and I'm interested in Chinese (mandarin AND canto) and want to learn farsi. 11.) I enjoy food (though I suppose thats pretty obvious if you look at me.). I like experiencing flavors. I like to cook it, I like to eat it, I like to smell it, and well I plan on selling it sometime. I hope to open up a restaurant within the next 5 years with a buddy (another one on the endless list of ambitions) 12.) I contradict myself on the strangest things. For example, I love fighting but I hate hurting people or getting hurt. This is probably why judo is a good fit for me. There are a lot of aspects about it that I find fascinating. The competitiveness in a fight is sharp and bold; in a way it is the opitomy of competition. Every moment of a fight is clear and slow, yet they pass so quickly in succession. I can't think when I fight, I just move and experience an intense adrenaline rush. Oddly it's the calmest my mind ever feels because I have 1 clear directive at any given time~ win, or don't die (like when someone is trying to choke me out). 13.) I hate this number. In 6th grade (i don't really like the number 6 either) everyone in the class was assigned a number. I was number 13. It was a horrible year even to the very end. At the end of the year we had a class tug of war. Each graduating class competed, there were 4. The rope had two large loops at the very end and somehow I got talked into being inside the loop. My class lost horribly and i got dragged THROUGH my classmates by the other class. What a horrible horrible year. 14.) I'm not able to be sad around other people. If something tragic happens I don't feel the sadness until I'm alone. Like when trang passed, I didn't feel it when I heard it, I didn't feel it when I said goodbye, I didn't feel it when I was at the wake. But when I left the hospital I was sad, when I left the funeral home I was sad, and for a while every time I left IRBAJ late at night I was sad. 15.) I try to be as rational and logical as I can; yet I throw that all into the wind and follow my instincts. 16.) I like to savor certain things. Like flavor (savor the flavor!), driving, and traveling. When I travel I avoid going to too many tourist traps. Maybe I'll visit one or two in a day. I like to explore in order to experience where I am and what I am doing. I listen to the ambient sounds, smell the air, meander through random streets, watch what people do and see how they interact, and examine whatever catches my eye. 17.) I feel like I should be doing more with my life. I feel like I'm a huge waste of potential. At the same time I want to relax and enjoy myself. I'm so lazy. This pisses off my brother. 18.) I miss chicago. 19.) I genuinely miss friends that I haven't talked to in a long time. I suck at keeping in touch, but it doesn't mean that I've forgotten or stopped caring about you guys. I just don't know what to say since i'm so far / out of touch with you all. I think this tends to be mutual because I never feel akward around old friends that I haven't seen in a long time. 20.) I used to be a pretty religious, since college I've have an appathetic stance to the whole thing. I wonder about religion and try to rationalize stuff. Maybe I'm in some strange twilight zone with how I regard god. I bet he's a little peeved with me. 21.) I used to try to imagine what it was like to be dead. This was one of those reoccuring daydreams when i was in 6th grade (it was that horrible). I could imagine not seeing, not smelling, not tasting, not feeling, but I couldn't wrap my mind around the concept of what it would be like to not be able to think. I gave up after a while because no matter how hard I tried I couldn't do it. 22.) I remember when I was really young (like 5?) I noticed that I REALLY LIKED GIRLS. For a while (few years?) I quietly worried that since I liked girls so much then, that I would run out of how much I could like them in the then near future. While I subscribed to this theory, I tried to stop myself from liking girls too much. This theory that my pea brain came up with has proven to be totally wrong. 23.) I get too serious about games. For example, I lost a good chunk of my college life playing counterstrike; it was a waste of perfectly good time that I could have been savoring the city of chicago with my buddies. I still play reversi + bubble breaker a few times a day. 24.) I don't like having dirty dishes. I like to clean them right after I eat. I hate leaving them in the sink. I think this is because I avoid bacteria as best as I can. I never touch anything in public bathrooms except for paper. (I grab a paper towel on my way in to avoid touching anything) I also wash my hands with soap at least 7~8 times a day. 25.) I'm AWESOME. At least I like to think so, it makes me feel more comfortable with my inadequacies. I have learned that no one, and nothing is or can be truly perfect. It is much too hard to be perfect, and the idea is too optomistic for me to believe in. I can find fault with anything. I've learned to get over this crappy fact, and enjoy (SAVOR!) things for what they are and have learned to appreciate things as awesome and not awesome. by the way, you are totally awesome for reading all of this.
