Music: We're probably not going to listen to the same music, tbh.
I'm primarily a fan of old school female pop artists (Madonna is
queen) mixed with some classic rock for my personal listening, but
I'm not too picky overall. I also love movie scores (I currently
have 1741 tracks in my iTunes library).
Food: What's not to love about food in Austin? I'm admittedly not
the most adventurous eater in the world, but I can find something
I'm down for at just about any restaurant.
Other things: theme parks, kayaking, zoos and animal rescue
shelters, drag shows/gay culture, LEGOs, old school video games,
collecting things, writing letters, board games/party games, roller
derby/roller skating, exploring new parts of a city, digging around
used book and movie stores, and more!
