I only hit snooze once in the morning and sometimes not at all.
Sometimes I go for a run, other times I smoke a cigarette. I read
books like they are sustenance (because, maybe for me, they are). I
travel overseas quite a bit as my family lives in
Germany/Switzerland. I dream of all the places I will someday
travel and get antsy to make it happen. I enjoy making holiday
cards to send to all of my friends, but this past year I didn't
send them until July (wompwompwomp). I try to lead a relaxed and
simple life; I am an easy-to-please person that prefers quality of
character of the people surrounding me over quality of activity
that we are doing (museums and shows are fun, but only if you are
with good folk).
Did I use that semicolon correctly?

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm pretty into contemporary fiction. But, I also have
worked at a few bookstores over the years and my interest range has
widened because of it. I'm always reading a book or two -- right
now it's The Little Friend by Donna Tartt and the tenth anniversary
collection of n+1 essays.
Movies: I'm sorry to all you film buffs, but I'm not picky. My
favorite B-list horror movie is The Descent, if that tells you
Shows: Breaking Bad. Currently losing countless hours of my life
Music: I do love some 90's hiphop, rap, and boom bap. De La Soul,
Big Pun, and Nice & Smooth are being consistently played these
days. Pete Philly and Perquisite, Tor, RJD2, Ratatat, and Girltalk
make me tap my foot. Justin Timberlake. TI. Big Boi. Frank Ocean.
St. Vincent, Cold Speck, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell. Mountain
Man, Glasser, The Tallest Man on Earth. Jose Gonzalez.
I think maybe one consistent genre that gets played in a variety of
moods and times is Jazz. Nothing really past the 70's/80s
though...lots of Ella, Django, Bill Evans, and the like.
Food: It's yummy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

5.The feeling of Sunday morning laziness
6. More warm clothing.
