I tend to think about the future constantly, whether that's about where we're likely to be in 10 years to the far future I'll never see. I like to dream about different things and create worlds in my own mind.
And I like pie. But then, who doesn't?
I enjoy talking about almost anything, from history and philosophy to video games and Star Wars to cats and birds. Try talking to me about stuff; even if I'm not familiar, I'll probably be interested to learn more about it if you have the time and inclination to explain.
In terms of what I do, I like watching a variety of shows on the Internet, playing games of all kinds (video-, card-, dice-, sport, board-, whatever), going to eat at restaurants with friends, going shopping with friends, exploring down unknown roads with my car (and GPS to get home with), working out (weight and resistance training, mostly), and just about anything suggested to me by friends at the time if I'm not doing anything else right then.
I seek to learn as much about everything as I can, though I tend not to be an expert in anything as a result. I know how lucky my life has been up to this point, so I try to be thankful for all that I have and all the awesome people with me now.
Making others happy tends to make *me* happy, and when others around me are upset, it makes me upset. Happy > Upset, so I strive to make everyone around me happy when I can and whatever way I find that'll do it fastest.
And finally, I tend to try to be humorous, as humor helps make people happy faster when it works. I'm not necessarily *good* at it, but I try. Oh, do I try!!
Also back in Toastmasters on Thursdays after a long hiatus (non-profit group dedicated to teaching public speaking and leadership skills). And I'm back being the Sergeant at Arms, too, which I like because setting up the room before meetings is a great "zen" activity for me to do while I unwind from work stress. Plus, the point after the meeting where we all go to a local mexican place to eat and hang out is always fun :)
Otherwise, working as a consultant DBA, trying desperately to get certified as one so I can earn higher pay for the same work I do (I *suck* at tests, and each time I take it costs money). Also just hanging out with friends and bumming around when not doing anything else.
I'm also good at saying it like it is and giving advice when others present their problems for me to solve...though convincing people to actually follow said advice is another matter. I'm also good at just sitting there and shutting up when people need to vent. It's all a matter of what people need from me at that time.
Finally, I'm really good at being both patient and persistent (read: stubborn like a bull). It's the foundation of most of my success in life, though I try to focus it on tasks and things rather then people. Wouldn't give it up for all the tea in China!
The next physical thing people notice is that my eyes change color. They've been everything from blue to green to (according to others) purple, though I've looked every time and never seen that last one.
The last thing they tend to notice is that I tend to defy their expectations based on appearance. A lot of people have said they're surprised that I like the things I do considering how I look and hold myself. So I'm a walking contradiction, yay!
b) After a LONG hiatus from the movie watching scene, I'm finally willing to go out and watch movies and rent videos. Don't know why I stopped, probably because I didn't have enough money for those and video games, and given the choice, it's no contest that VGs would win. Still don't like horror/thriller movies, though, and movies with "pointlessly downer" or "stupidly downer" endings leave me hating them, too, but I'll generally watch anything else if it's good.
c) Tons of internet shows out there, WAY too many to list completely, but here are a few I'm watching now: Nostalgia Critic, Atop The Fourth Wall, Death Battle, Dragon Ball Z Abridged, Vsauce, MinutePhysics, CGPGrey, Extra Credits and Jimquisition.
d) Nightwish if my favorite band, hands down. Only band I've ever been to a show for, and they will remain so until the end of time. So that makes me a...classical...punk rock...fan? Otherwise, I like just about anything - my playlist has video game music (and I mean mp3 loops of acutal game music, not just remixes), rap, jazz, 90s pop, and some rare country songs among others - in general, whatever's currently playing is what I like.
e) Eel sushi. Also chocolate and pizza. And steak and pasta and seafood and...lots of stuff, really. The only things I don't like and will not eat are things with lettuce in them, and type (hence why I consider "nutrition" to be such a big deal for me: nobody offers good non-lettuce salads at restaurants). If I haven't tried it before, then so long as someone else can be there to show me good stuff (and/or share the pain), I'll be game to try it.
f) As for games, I have so many I like, but these are the ones that are in my short list to play again and talk your ear off on: Quest For Glory, Zelda, Space Quest, Myst, Broken Sword, Xenogears,Chrono Trigger,Armored Core,C&C Red Alert 2, and F.E.A.R.
Otherwise, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I like just about anything, from Tetris to Sims Mario to Sonic to Infinity and Beyond! I've gotten a Wii U recently and am slowly adapting to the fact I now have friends who like to play games, too, so I'm starting to get into local multiplayer...?
Seriously, my imagination is usually where I'm at if I'm not actively doing something. I can entertain myself quite well, so I'm never bored (though being with others is usually much more interesting and lends fuel for later).
When not in some fantastic realm of my own creation, I'm usually thinking of the latest youtube video that I've seen recently, or about the most recent game I've played, or what my friends are up to. If I'm in the mood to be serious minded, I think about the world's state of affairs, business and finances, science, philosophy, history, religion...any number of things.
And how hugely, mind-bogglingly big space is, and how the walk down to the pharmacist is peanuts compared to space...
So big that a disc-shaped planet on four giant elephants on top of a turtle is probably hurtling through it right now...
Or a space station the size of a moon with a stupidly small weak spot perfect for fighter-class torpedoes to be sucked into...
Or about humanity's future generations from now when we meet logically minded pacifist aliens and courageously travel to new places never seen before...
And strawberry cheesecake. Mmmm, cheesecake!
Did I mention I can laugh at almost ANYthing...?
About sexual stuff: though I'm willing to do one-night stands, it's not my first preference by any means. I much prefer "friends with benefits", as I'd rather have friends then the benefits, and knowing the person I'm in bed with makes it way more fun.
