What Trolls like?
Well, I'm 21 and striving for medical school. I lost a lot of dreams and have difficulty knowing what I like anymore so this helps me put some concepts together. So far I can say I love owlies, frogs, bunnies (zaichike), hedgehogs, fennec foxes and last but not least, fishies! Also of interest to me is various architecture, minimalism, nature, the forest, woods, parks, hikes, mountains, traveling, oceans and seas. I like the sky, the stars and cars, too. I also love technology and love site design, color wheels, cameras (hasselblads, leicas, mamimaya, canon). Font design is interesting and other forms of graphic design. Illustrations, alternative photographic processes (cyanotypes, platinum types) and multimedia delight me. Watercolor and ink is pretty. Books are comforting. TB hard-drives are very useful. CSS is great and recently JS importance has been increasing in my mind. My ears love trance, dubstep, ambient, rap, R&B, and classical sound. I especially love string quartet tributes! Motorcycles make me tingle; I have my permit and will be going for the licensing soon. I am not afraid of injury or death and relish live surgeries. I work as a paralegal, but have completed several internships that have allowed me to watch the human heart beating powerfully in its own pool of blood, exposed with a relatively small incision and then clamps pulling the walls apart. There are a lot of days that I see all of these things as being too superfluous to really care about. I used to really like sushi, Indian and Thai food, but even that I am losing taste for as food progressively becomes less important to me. I still like Green Tea lattes very much. I have plans for a lot of tattoos, but my motto for life is that in the grand scheme of life, none of it matters. In a world that's ending, do you love me?
