I read fiction, learning the banjo, listen to podcasts (comedy and NPR and WNYC related), hang out in various parks and museums, drink outdoors, drink indoors, take advantage of free events and concerts, find the best (best/cheapest as well as best/fancy) places to eat, watch the occasional TV show, enjoy good bourbon, scotch and rye in fancy cocktail bars as well as in shitty dive bars, watch a lot of movies and want to go see more plays/musicals. Concerts and music festivals are my fuel. As is going outdoors and getting deeper into nature.
I hear sleep is fun, I've been interested in trying that for some time now.
Making plans to travel abroad somewhere as well as around the US to some new cities and am open to suggestions. I've never left the country except for that one time in a border town in Mexico. It's pretty tragic, I know.
Finding childhood nostalgia and entertaining people with it
Finding excuses to celebrate things
Making corn tortillas
Sneaking booze into theaters
Saving the day
Finding fun stuff to do
Getting hurt by getting too excited about something and not protecting myself

I'm always up for tacos, bbq and southern cuisine (my roots), but love all the awesome restaurants and various ethnic cuisines available in this city. I'll try anything and I'm pretty sure I'm getting close to trying all things edible. There's really nothing I don't like. What else...Bacon. Spicy things. Vegetables. Arepas. Spanish tapas. All things Japanese, Vietnemese, Korean, Indian, Thai and Malaysian...I think I should probably go to Asia.
Bourbon, Rye, Scotch and Red Wine
Coffee or green tea
Being challenged and inspired by myself and others
