Even though my career is very math-centric, the thing I get most excited about is a good story, be it a book, a movie, a play, or whatever. Theater has always been a hobby of mine, of the backstage variety mostly: stage managing, directing, playwrighting. I haven't been involved with it much since I moved out to California, though. It's tough to find a good group to work with, especially when it is only a hobby.
I'm originally from New England, being from Connecticut and then moving to the Boston area for college and stay there for my first job. I'm worried that I'm losing my New England hardiness, but the allure of the Bay Area weather pattern is pretty hard to pass up. Maybe my mind will change after I've lived through my first large earthquake.
