I don't want to say too much else (because conversations are a thing), but I am going for my masters in Vocal Performance beginning Spring 2016 at the University of North Texas, so I will be moving to Denton by early December.
Also ENTJ. Like whoa.
The last six months or so have been a whirlwind of change-- Once I made the decision to go back to school and pursue music for real, things have been exciting, but also stressful. The dust won't settle for a while until mid December when I'm moved and things fall back into place for a while. Every day has been an adventure, so I suppose the best way to answer "What I'm doing with my life" is to simply say, I'm moving forward.
I also love cooking, and I often challenge myself to new and difficult dishes. If I want company, I usually just have to say I'm making dinner.

All my cookbooks
Anything else I've found lying around
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Labyrinth (Gotta love me some David Bowie)
an assortment of really bad horror movies
and a few really good horror movies.
I also have a secret love for documentaries.
I'm not picky on music but classical is my favorite. Call me lame, but gimme some Bach, or something crazy like Ives and I'm set. If it's not classical, usually singer/songwriter or Indie rock is what I'll go for.
My favorites are southwestern and Japanese.
If I'm going out I'll usually end up at either a divey Tex-Mex place (they've always got the best food) or some small Asian restaurant.
I constantly crave VERY spicy food. Be warned, sometimes I'm seeking a dinner that doubles as a test of manhood.
But really-- I'll eat anything if it's made right.
There are no bad foods, only bad cooks.
My record system
A Piano or working keyboard
Had I these six things I could live on a deserted Island for years. Yes, Salsa is THE condiment for life. Salsa is a way of life.
If there's a new restaurant or great bar (especially a cocktail bar, or a rare beer release) I'll probably find an excuse to get out there.
Be funny, be clever, be weird
and be honest.
