I love to read, write, climb mountains, and play around with pets or kids. I also love to have intellectual discussions and if I can do that with a pretty girl it's sublime. If I could not sing or dance, life would not be worth the struggle.I would very much like to write something great one day.
Other fun stuff includes:
Thinking (meditation, brainstorming, self-critical internal diatribe, you name it.), laughing, trying to be funny or smart, climbing trees, contorting my way through crowds, exercising, talking to kids, playing video games, playing sports, watching indie movies on netflix.
I'm a feminist, socialist, humanist, all those nice anti-oppression and inequality -ists.
So far I've only been to most of the U.S. and Western Europe, but ideally I'll go everywhere before I die, including other planets and dimensions. Peru, Nepal, India, and New Zealand are currently at the top of my list.
I've hitchhiked to California from Massachusetts. I met a lot of truckers with hearts of gold along the way.
