I consider myself a pretty informed person about national and world events; I especially enjoy keeping up with foreign politics in trouble spots (like the Middle East).
Hobbies have been winnowed down by time commitments over the last couple years but I love to cook, dabble in photography when I get the chance, and spending time gaming with friends (online or tabletop). I like traveling and adventure, but unfortunately don't get to do either nearly as often as I'd like due to lack of adventuring partners.
Non-Fiction: The Guns of August, Castles of Steel, Nixonland, Wizards of Armageddon, Rumors of War, With the Old Breed, State of Denial.
Movies: Wide taste, but I'll give a few examples: Burn After Reading, Children of Men, Watchmen, Brazil, Inglorious Basterds, Apocalypse Now, Django Unchained, Cabin in the Woods.
Music: Pretty wide taste. Some examples would be Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Murder by Death, Muse, Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, Mumford & Sons, Kesha, and Of Monsters and Men.
Television: I don't really watch much TV anymore, but I'm a huge fan of Game of Thrones and House of Cards.
Games: Planetside 2, Paradox games, Borderlands-series, and so on. I finally started playing Skyrim finally thanks to Steam's winter sale.
Food: I enjoy basically anything. Typically the spicier something is, the happier I am with it. Thai and Indian cuisine are particular favorites. I think of myself as a pretty decent cook, I'm always finding and trying out new recipes and experimenting with the ones I like.
