I started out as a professor at a small college nearby last fall. So far so good! Work is filled with teaching and research. Two of my most favorite things. Outside of that?
Having fun reacquainting myself with the food scene here. I scored a rad apartment with a huge (by New York standards) kitchen and have loved making use of it, along with all of New York's bounty.
I wouldn't call myself a crazed fan - but I definitely enjoy music: live shows, festivals, new bands, old bands. Depending on my workload, however, my frequency of getting and seeing new music varies. Sometimes I find it a relief to take a step back and just enjoy the tracks I already have, or rediscover some band I've long forgotten. That probably describes me more generally in fact. I'm often overwhelmed with the pace/turnover of technology and culture. Yes, I only recently upgraded from my reliable qwerty flip phone. Missing its epic battery life.
Other random interests: finding/painting furniture, sewing things, yoga and running (sometimes), hiking (upstate), exploring neighborhoods, potlucks, yard sale-ing (should I reconsider now that I am in bed bugs land?), staying in touch with people (though I'm not big on Facebook - see note above), reading (book club and all).
