I love technology, gadgets, science, and geeking out over stuff most people don't appreciate. I enjoy trying out new things, and I never back down from a challenge. My hobbies include video games, programming, reading, and board and role-playing games. Other activities I enjoy but don't do as often as I would like are skiing, snowboarding, hiking, martial arts, paintball, cycling, horseback riding, climbing, camping, sailing, going to museums, zoos, libraries, amusement parks... pretty much anything. If it's interesting or fun, I'm game.
I love travelling. Exploring new and exotic locales, see how people live elsewhere. I've been to the US a couple of times, London, Paris, moved about Spain and Italy. I'm hoping to visit further east in the future. Japan, China, India, cultures that aren't so familiar to me. I'd love to learn a third language as well.
There are some things I haven't done but would love to get around to eventually. Bungee jumping, parachuting off a plane, and learning to fly a plane (I think the order in which you learn those two is important). Going hunting could be interesting. And going to space.
I am a very independent person, and try to be self-reliant. I'm close to my family, and enjoy spending time with them (for the most part), but I don't let their opinions decide what I can or cannot do. I enjoy dry, subtle humor. References, sarcasm and irony are always good fun, and I appreciate sharp wit.
