I have several close friendships and enjoy a few monthly routine things, including poker night in a shed, dinners with the usual suspects and runs around greenlake. I like to mix it up though, and last summer I went to Mexico for 6 weeks just to learn Spanish, then ruined my learning by going to China for 3 weeks. I've been to 27 countries and most of the states. Travel never gets old.
I admire people who make the world a better place.
