A few things you may not know about me:

  • I have a tattoo of the Chinese symbol for "spirit" on the back of my right hip.
  • When I was about three or four I remember thinking I would grow up to be a boy.
  • I hate wet bathroom floors.
  • I was ashamed to say I worked in Payroll when I was put in charge of that department at a company in 2001 after 9/11.  They gave me that job because there was no other job for me at the company.  Never before have I been so aware of how I identify with my jobs.
  • I have always hated how my legs look.
  • I have had many moments where I feel like the awkward person with nothing to say, nothing to add.
  • I hate bananas, yet I love banana bread.
  • I wish I could travel through time to meet my grandparents when they were my age.
  • The song Lovely Day by Bill Withers makes me cry.
  • I spend more time by myself than most would think.  And I like it.  Sometimes.
  • As a rule, I don’t run for subway trains.  I like to believe in a system that espouses frequency and convenience.
  • I avoid crowded elevators.
  • I am finally starting to feel a confidence in myself I have never, or rarely, before felt.
