Hey, I travel all the time and am grounded so just sitting here hanging out. What the hell is non-binary? I live in Western Europe and never heard that term used. Does it mean you have no sex organs? seriously wtf?! Master's In Environmental Science but Writer and TEFOL teacher so I can travel.
I respect and admire writers. I am not into actors. I watch films for the stories- the writers are everything. I actually don't like actors. But I do like Jack Nicholson's and Marlon Brando's work, Clive Owen was ok in The Nick, the rest I couldn't care less about. who plays the role is irrelevant to me, just put someone there to carry out the magnificent dialogue. It is the story: the compassion, the humanity of a film or series that grabs my attention.
I have travelled to 70 countries so far and will visit number 71 in June with my stimulus check. (woohoo!:)) I reside in Europe(dual citizen -European parentage) though obviously (from my username) I am a Native New Yorker. I began flying sola abroad when I was eleven years old to visit my family in New York from the Virgin Islands where we lived. The taste of another culture captivated me and still does-Turkey is my favourite country and culture; I was touched so deeply by the people abroad except for the American brats not from New York who went to school with me in the Virgin Islands. I do not like most Americans who come form outside New York; they seem vacant and completely self-centered. Most are Narcissists in f act.; I find them stupid like the current president, they have high self esteem disproportionate to what they offer; they overestimate themselves and their contributions, they are not naturally talented at anything and they often steal other people's ideas as a result. They are in a word: unlovable.
Why do Americans not impeach Trump now that he displayed intellectual retardation in public asking physicians "why we could not inject a disinfectant-read poisonous liquid- into the lungs?!" The fact that the government and people do not immediately remove him from the Presidency of the most powerful nation in the world for this obvious sign: a clear display that he has the intellect of a three- year old child , that he suffers intellectual retardation and the myriad events of sick obviously pathological behavior and actions over the past six years, scares me.
MY home country frightens me with its inaction, acceptance of and display of pride, insanity, greed and stupidity-an odious combination. My last hope was Bernie Sanders. I give up. I am now an European and wish America luck; just as one cannot maintain a relationship with a narcissist, neither can I maintain a relationship with the current pathological America. Trump is a malignant narcissist and I must go no contact with the sick society that he leads. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Joe Biden is an equally crazy and abusive old man with dementia. Talk to the DNC if you have a problem. Sane people will not vote for either one.
I was fortunate to see that elsewhere in the world people had interests beyond money and consumerism the latter of which i find so boring and gross given that our planet is overpopulated and exploited in every way for "resources". I swim every day and visit beautiful natural places. I follow my bliss as I set out to do at 24.
I tend to like intelligent dramas and comedies as well as psychological thrillers; I prefer foreign films with the exception of Scorsese early P.T. Anderson and Wes Anderson and a couple of Tarantino flicks -kill Bill 1 and 2.

Series: I prefer to watch British series because American series are so tainted with propaganda and agendas it is refreshing to watch a series that is not. Some of the British dramas are but many more are not. Hidden- from Wales- is excellent, The KNick was awesome, Unforgotten is great, The Split, Shetland, Broadchurch, Apple Tree Lane, Gold Digger, The Accident, Blood(Ireland), Marcela, Transplant(Canada),Liar, The Stranger, Bodyguard, DC BAnks, Hinterland, The Missing, River, Manhunt, Collateral, Flesh and Blood
Music: Funk/Classical/Rock/SKA/World/70's and 80's British Pop/dance and New Wave A few groups I love Tool, Slash, Three Dog Night, Roxy Music, Queen, The Who
Only cannot stand two genres: rap which is not music and country which annoys me to no end maybe because I'm from New York, maybe because it is just grating to everyone like mariachis after the first week in Mexico. It's all Yolk yolk yolk the ccent puts me off I can't stand it- I have NOTHING in common with people who think their ethnicity is American.
