I enjoy playing the violin, watching movies, video games, playing cards and some TV; mostly educational stuff like Discovery and History Channel, but I also like cooking challenge shows, anime, and comedies in general. I also recently began playing the cello. I like doing things that get me outside the home such as bowling, going to parks, hitting the gym, and shooting pool among others. I'm also a voracious reader; anything from fantasy to tech manuals. I've always had strong interests in computers, music, astronomy, weather and machinery/cars, so I guess you could say I'm a geek. I like to meet cool people that I can hold a interesting conversation with, but am also a great listener. I'm open to trying new things and am always up for having a good time. I enjoy going out, but I'm just as content to lounge around at home and enjoy some games or movies with some friends.
I have some interest in photography, enough that I went and bought an expensive camera, but I haven't used it much. I like to travel, especially road trips because I enjoy driving, but I haven't had the free time to rove around much for a while, else I'd probably be using that camera a lot more. I haven't been out of the country yet, but there are many places I'd like to visit including Japan, Ireland, Australia and several others. It's not just seeing the sights that interests me, but immersing myself in a different culture. That's why I took all those Japanese classes in high school; maybe one day I'll get to use it.
My creative side doesn't get as much of a workout as I'd like these days between work and school, but I do enjoy drawing. I used to have some talent when I was younger, so I've been trying to redevelop that ability. I also like to write sometimes when the mood strikes me. I'm a bit of a romantic, and that will occasionally influence my writing. It also influences how I handle relationships. I'm all about elaborate, romantic nights on the town. Whimsical, random, or casual dates are also great, but I've always enjoyed putting together something a little more classy and memorable now and then.
Altogether, I like to have a good time and I can be fairly creative in discovering ways to have it.
