I've always had an interest in art as well as science; I thought my career would involve a lot of creative problem solving, but most of the time I'm just trying to decipher drawings from 30 odd years ago when apparently paper was worth more than gold because they tried to jam every detail on a single sheet. One of my new year's resolutions is to draw more- maybe I can get the imagination going again that way!
Nature is usually my escape from the salt mine, but I'm trying to work in more social stuff too- hopefully a date!
Lists: Not to complete, but to let me know I'll never run out of things to do.
Coffee: When a blizzard took out my power for three days, I was all right with using a sleeping bag in my 38-degree house, but I wasn't having the no-coffee situation. I've got a French press now, no worries!
Bicycle: So I don't have to have bad days at work, just sometimes there's a mean "hill" midway through my weekday rides.
Unstructured time: To offset my list-mania.
Travel: I'm taking on wilderness expeditions while I'm single; if you're into that, that's cool, but I wouldn't mind a relaxing vacation now and then too!
