Most of the time you will find me dabbling in a lot of different things and I usually have some side project that I'm tinkering with or some new thing to research.
For more than a year, I've been focused on getting healthier and developing good habits, so I've been taking a lot of fitness classes, including karate, kettlebell, TRX. I never turn down an opportunity to do some other activity, for example Aerial Dance, Soccer, etc.
Recently I have been insanely active (as evidenced from the list above) so I focus a lot of energy into that.
I own a condo in the virginia highlands area so I also spend a lot of time going to local festivals, concerts, bars and just enjoying my neighborhood.
Giving good advice (not necessarily taking it).
Standing up for friends.
Reflecting on life (also using parentheticals).

Not much in the way of TV but I do catch The Daily Show, Colbert Report and South Park regularly. Recently been watching Game of Thrones.
Music is a constant companion in my life and I never pass up the chance to see live music. At most times I have music playing in my house, my car etc. Here is a sample:
