I read a lot: fiction, philosophy, psychology, politics... My library keeps expanding, but for some reason I haven't bought an e-reader yet. I like discovering and turning over new ideas. I can sometimes be stubborn when it comes to my core values, but my default policy is 'live and let live.' I have a broad taste in music, and still play my keyboard now and then even though I stopped taking lessons years ago. I'd like to pick up a more portable instrument one of these days. (Guitar? Viola? Ukelele? Accordion? Choices, choices... okay, maybe not accordion.) Since I was in elementary school, I've been running long distance. I still haven't run a marathon, but it's on my bucket list (hopefully sooner rather than later). Running is my way of staying grounded and striving for some kind of personal transcendence at the same time. I usually commute by bike to school or work, and leisure rides on calm summer nights can be exquisite. I am an occasional camper. Nature is awe inspiring and wonderful and sometimes terrifying. I love animals, but my current abode does not permit pets.
Logic puzzles, board games, and puns are underrated sources of amusement. I also appreciate art in its many forms, including the peculiar and the offbeat. I'm always seeking harmony between the logical and the intuitive sides of my personality. All that being said, I like kicking back with good friends and a few beers, hanging at the beach, going for a bike ride, or watching a brainless movie.
