I surprise people when they sit and talk to me. They expect a ditz because of my energy but they find that I am actually quite curious, intelligent, perceptive, intuitive, and insightful.
The worst kind of trouble I get up to is brainstorming acts of kindness. Do you have an idea to share?
I really mean it when I say the little things make me happy. I still have a child-like wonder at nature and the world.
My favourite topics to both read and talk about are psychology, mental health, addictions, behaviour (causes and interventions), world cultures, science, technology.
I'm financially secure and value stability and financial independence. I have a career, own my car, my home, and work hard. I balance that by being very social. I have the freedom to go out for dinner or a show whenever the whim strikes me. Which is often.
I would call myself a city or cultural explorer. I like to check out the hidden gems only the locals know about. I love road trips.
I really enjoy hiking. I was going 3x a week rain or shine for approx 1-1.5hrs. I actually really like going to the gym, so long as it isn't regimented.
Approaching problems from different angles.

My fav movies are horror/thriller/action. I'm not a fan of low brow humour, but otherwise also enjoy comedies. Pretty much anything that doesn't move at a snail pace, except documentaries, which are fascinating.
My favourite TV shows have been An American Horror Story, Big Bang Theory, Alphas, and Touch. Science / nature / catastrophe / ancient civilization shows. TED talks. Most anything on Space or Discovery channel. I tend to gravitate towards home improvement as well.
Looking for a new series to get hooked onto. Any suggestions?

I relish in finding the next big RnB artist before anyone else has heard of them. Or old school less known R&B artists. I also enjoy music from the Motown and doo wop era. Oh and classic rock.
I love trying food from different ethnicities, especially hole-in-the-walls. Lately I've been making Indian, Thai, and Canadian - Chinese dishes on a regular basis. BAM!
Learning / internet (had to sneak it in)

Pondering different sides of issues.
Usually random thoughts from what I see in my environment.
