1. Job: I work at Hollywood Casino. It's nothing I ever imagined doing, but it has been a good job with decent pay and benefits. I am licensed to teach, but don't have any immediate plans to go back to it.
2. Family: I have a great immediate and extended family. The weekend after Christmas we get together on my Mom's side every year and it's almost always one of the highlights of the year.
3. Conversation: I love a good conversation and/or friendly debate. It could be about politics/economics, about a movie, history, a game, etc. This somewhat otherwise goes against my general personality of going along on most things (I have a friend who is surprised every time he hears me say anything negative). Note: I consider myself a libertarian conservative but not only partially identity as Republican.
4. Faith: I'm Catholic and my faith is important to me.
5. Trips: I like national parks, theme parks, road trips, and probably about anywhere to visit. I don't really travel all that much, but always enjoy when I do.
6. Health: I keep trying to make myself be a little healthier with mixed effects. I jog some, have cut back a lot of pop, and have exercised some lately with a friend. On the flip side though, it's a chore to get myself to eat fruit or vegetables and my diet should improve.
7. Finances: My goal is to get out of debt as quickly as possible and then never be in it again outside of maybe a house at some point. I planned on paying a lot back quickly after school and then proceeded to help out immediate family and a friend a lot for a few years in time of need (that's mostly over now and I've learned from it). I'm now finally making significantly more than I was and am paying almost double on my principal each month compared to what I am required. At my current rate, I could be done in 4 years (although I probably won't be able to maintain that, see below).
8. Home: I know this will be a deal breaker for many so it's upfront. I am currently living with my parents and siblings. Tentatively, my plan is to move out early next year. If I do get into a relationship that will be a big incentive to stick to that. While it might making dating harder, I think this has been the responsible choice. I have helped out a lot here (financially and otherwise), am welcome, enjoy seeing my parents/younger siblings more, and being at home means paying down debt quicker. Given my belief that the economy is going to be extremely bad going forward, I think this is responsible short term choice even though I know it's not going to be perceived that way by a lot of people.
