Fifty things about me
I can’t sit up straight in a chair for more than a few minutes. I have to slouch or I get terrible anxiety.
At the end of the day, I’m an introvert.
I have very little discipline when it comes to food.
I have trouble reading. I used to be terrified when teachers would call on me to read out loud.
I have the vocabulary of a fifth grader which is why I make up my own sayings.
I don’t know Kung Fu.
I’m afraid of the ocean. If a fish grazes my leg, I will run on water a la Jesus back to shore. It’s happened.
I want children one day.
I’m finally starting to feel old even though I don’t want to admit it.
I get nervous before every session I give.
I’m a hopeless romantic.
I’m a loner and experience loneliness a lot.
I play back expired relationships way too much.
I stock exes on Instagram.
I’ve been super sheltered when it comes to relationships and just now realizing how crazy people are. Me included.
I talk too much.
I show myself too soon.
I enjoy dudes. Not in that way. I love the bro down.
My Korean name means iron. I don’t mind if you call me Iron Man. My brother’s name means stone. I always knew I was stronger than him.
I have regrets.
I’ve only done drugs three times. Once I almost overdosed on marijuana chewables because I was trying to cure my insomnia. The last time was with dudes at The Joshua Tree. I still want to have sex on X.
I’m usually some girl’s first “Asian guy”. I’m the gateway Asian.
I enjoy foreplay more than sex.
I love fast machines that you can ride.
I want to direct a movie one day. Or act in one. But I’d have to hold the script in my hand because I’m a horrible memorizer.
There’s nothing more beautiful than a woman.
But they are also the most confusing creatures on the planet.
I still don’t consider myself a writer.
I wear my heart on my sleeve and I like that about myself. But I get hurt a lot.
I wish I was two inches taller.
I wear a night guard because I grind my teeth.
Creating is my favorite thing to do.
I hate planes.
I shaved my head once and looked like a monk. Never again.
I don’t judge people on what they do. I judge them on how they treat others.
I’m only interested in truth.
I lost my virginity when I was seventeen to a friend.
I hate how every photo on the internet is filtered now. My photo above is totally filtered and like 6 years old.
Do as I say, not as I do.
I can’t wear button down shirts. Or bow ties. But I would sport overalls if I could pull them off which I can’t.
If I don’t drive or ride shotgun, I get car sick almost instantly. But I have no problem doing windmills (breakdancing).
My biggest pet peeve is people who are late and people who don’t communicate. Both drive me crazy.
I am not hard on myself. On purpose.
I struggle with acceptance.
I will always get something on the menu if it says “world famous”.
I could eat sushi every single day.
I need glasses but I refuse to wear them.
I don’t like pants.
Biggest turn on: vulnerability.
I want to delete almost everything I post.
