About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live, love, and learn.

ABOUT ME

My name is Anoush, but people used to call me Lisa.

I want to be a dinosaur when I grow up.

PHILOSOPHY

"Wherever you go, there you are."

My general philosophy is to live my life freely, without unnecessary self-imposed restrictions and limitations. I think it is possible for me to make the world a happier place, by being loving and kind to others; even if kindness affects only one other person in a positive way, I strive to do just that. I think people often forget to live the moment they are in, because they are too busy thinking about the future or the virtual world around them. Life is what you make of it, and choices are yours to make.

Music, Movies, and Books

Kurt Vonnegut is my all-time favorite. Music and movies are wonderful too, but it'd be futile to categorize genres and titles that I love. I have a very wide range of interests in this category; generally, optimistic cynicism in the form of documentaries gets my gears going.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wrestled a bear with my bare hands in a dream, one time.
