I am first and foremost a creative type. I write whenever the muses see fit to take over my mind, which has not been as often as I would like, but from time to time I still manage to bang out a few thousand words. At one time I was a glass blower, and while I would like to get back into that, the sheer cost of it as a hobby is a bit limiting, but I do hope to return someday to a hot shop and continue making vases that I can give to family and friends as gifts. I also, when the life schedule will allow, enjoy painting. I mostly do portraits of friends for birthday gifts or wedding gifts, but have been working on some more “outsider” art type of paintings lately. I’m a sucker for Photoshop, cats with bad grammar and tumblr.
I’m also an avid gamer, in the sense that if I have free time and no obligations, I’ll most likely pick up a controller and while away the hours on a video game. On occasion I will post game reviews on my friend’s blog, when there is one I want to either vent about or praise. I’m also currently working on a video game with a friend.
I would not call myself an expert chef, but I know my way around a kitchen and I’m more than capable at preparing a fine meal. I like trying new restaurants and bars and will eat pretty much anything…except bananas, just can’t stand them. Sushi is by far my favorite food ‘type’ (as in what most people would consider sushi, I like most Japanese cuisine, but it just seems so pretentious to say Japanese cuisine instead of sushi).
