I haven't had the time to read anything fiction in a long time (I
read a lot for work, science journals). I've read all the classics
though and I very much enjoy the time to read. The last set of
books I read were by Chuck Palahniuk (I read 6 in one summer), I
love the dark themed plot twists.
Shows: All the Sunday news shows (big politics buff),
Science/History Channel, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire,
Breaking Bad, Big Bang Theory, South Park, Newsroom, Seinfeld,
Friends, list goes on, but you get the point...
Music: I'm into a lot of different things now, but I grew up
listening to hard rock and heavy metal. Now I'll go for almost
anything from Top 40 to EDM to Rock, depends on my mood.
When the weather is nice I like to go out, grab a beer, and watch
the crowds of people (more fun to "people-watch" with a partner).
