About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to see everything,learn everything, and slow down the life blur!

ABOUT ME

Whovian, powered by tofu, trying to get the hang of traveling solo around SE Asia and chat with new people without being extremely awkward and scaring them away :-P Homeless, Jobless, Wandering.
Into the introverted arts of listening and noticing, people watching, and latching onto a strange topic and going on a roll!
Trying to get out of my uncreative photography slump!
Love renting a motorbike or bicycle everywhere I visit and going for an exploratory cruise. Did Roller Derby in South Korea and would love meeting up with other derby ladies and widows.
Like discussing any and all nerdy t.v. shows or technology/gadgets. Think everything is humorous, people should just jump right into real conversation, as I am not really skilled at the art of small talk.
