I'm 35 and work in IT for an Insurance Company. I purchased my first house eight years ago and love it. I enjoy reading a lot, as well as watching TV and movies. Besides house work I do Mountain Bike for a physical activity/exercise. I enjoy skiing and snowboarding though I haven't been in a few years since it is very expensive. Since I have private beach access to Coventry Lake in my town, I enjoy swimming there. I also like to Kayak/Canoe at the lake. I enjoy video gaming though I am not obsessed by it and can do without it. I like to go on trips or just long car rides. I absolutely love Disney World especially Epcot and want to take another trip there if possible. I also prefer to get to know someone in person vs. listing out likes and dislikes on a site. This is like filling out a resume for a job : )
What I’m doing with my life
I've been doing renovations on my house for the last two years and have mostly finished save a few rooms. Besides working there isn't much else I've been doing, I'd like to have someone to do more with.
I’m really good at
I'm not sure I can say I'm good at any thing in particular, except
maybe procrastination :) I have a lot of interests, but I can't say
I'm an expert at any of them, except maybe I can say I'm an expert
reader, or expert TV watcher.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be a bit shy around new people, though this passes quickly as
I get more comfortable with the person I'm with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love fiction, specifically SciFi and Fantasy. I've just finished the currently released works in the Song of Ice and Fire series and loved it. I've also read the novel "The Name of the Wind" and it's sequel "A Wise Man's Fear" and found them to be excellent. For SciFi & Fantacy it is probably better to just list authors:
George RR Martin
James S A Corey
Orson Scott Card (yes I know people have issues with him, but I still like his books)
I like historical books as well. Any book by historian David McCullough is worth reading. I love the same types of movies as books though I also enjoy a wider variety of movies then just SciFi and Fantasy. I'll eat almost any food type thought I'm especially fond of Seafood. I love lobster and fish etc.... I also really like Sushi.
I love music and have a varied and eclectic taste. (Don't care for country or rap)
All Time Favorite Bands: Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Skinny Puppy, KMFDM, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Garbage and Nirvana
Other bands I enjoy: Muse, Chevelle, Collective Soul, Weezer, Black Sabbath, Bad Company, Eagles, Billy Idol, The Who, Supertramp, Queen, Led Zeppelin, CCR, Cream, Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, The Clash, Talking Heads, The Cars, Neil Young, Crosby Stills and Nash, ZZ Top, too may others to list.
As for Movies and Television, I also like a lot of different things.
I enjoy American History and like documentaries about that.
I also like almost any SciFi show that is on. I'm a big fan of the works of Joss Whedon, so anything he puts out I'm probably going to love. I am a huge fan on Firefly, and I think Buffy the Vampire Slayer may just be my favorite TV show of all time. Other shows I've recently enjoyed:
The six things I could never do without
iPhone, Kindle, Car, Computer, Music, Movies (Family is a given so
not including it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to do with my house.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home watching TV. I'd love to be out somewhere else, but I don't
enjoy trying to meet people at bars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I filled out a profile on a dating site.
