I tend to be pretty easy going and get along with most people. That said, I'm definitely an introvert with socially anxious tendencies and can seem a little closed off at first (this is something I'm working on). But once I'm comfortable in a situation I loosen up and let my natural good nature shine through. Someone at work once even called me gregarious, an adjective I never, ever, would have thought to use to describe myself.
I think about the world a lot, but in an abstract way, not so much in concrete, "how can I change things?" terms. I guess spending a decent chunk of ones life in academia will do that to a person. But I think escaping that path has been for the better.
Going to baseball games. I loves me my Giants, but am perfectly happy with the A's as a cheaper, more convenient substitute. This situation has caused me a bit of existential angst -- I really prefer the A's and their fanbase, intellectually, but I just can't seem to escape being raised a Giants fan. 2010 and 2012 weren't bad, either.
Examining my life, and trying to learn to live more mindfully and from the heart, not the head. I had the realization about 3 years ago that just coasting through life might not be the best idea, and the work I've done sense has been transformational. When I can catch myself and stop overthinking things, I tend to be much happier.
Also, I have a beard and wear orange almost everyday. I love the color orange.
TV: I'll just list these. I probably spend too much time with that glowing rectangle, but think we're in a golden age for good television. Some of my favorites, in no particular order:
-Battlestar Galactica (just blasted through the entire season again on netflix)
-Suits, although I think its jumped the shark in Season 3
-Star Trek TNG
-The Office -- the british version and first two seasons of the American version
Movies: As a genre, I like quotable comedies...
-The Big Lebowski
-Dazed and Confused
-Blazing Saddles (yes, Mel Brooks is a comic genius)
Books: I don't read enough. I'll make that judgment on myself. But I do love surrealist or austere modern fiction: Thomas Pynchon, Jonathan Lethem, Jonathan Franzen, Annie Proulx, Cormac McCarthy. I've been meaning to pick up Infinite Jest for some time. Best book I read recently was The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach.
