Despite what my appearance may lead you to believe, I don't smoke. If you don't get what I mean, don't worry about it. If you smoke, it doesn't matter to me, just don't bother asking if I want any and no I don't sell. I don't really drink either. I had my first beer when I was freshly 29 and traveling in Europe. There's nothing exciting about the taste and trust when I say I've tasted what's considered "very good." Further, I have no interest in being drunk. Again, I don't care if you drink, I might even have one (literally one, two max) with you if we're out, but drinking isn't for me. I'd rather have a Root Beer (Mug, please).
Music has meant a lot to me over the years. Nothing like listening to something really heavy to get you pumped or something mellow when you're down or just want to chill.
I love anime--the stories, the characters, the art style, and the way that the best anime can evoke strong emotions. I like reading manga too, but that's been a more recent development.
I like video games and own a 360, but I don't play a lot. I still have all my other systems packed away somewhere. Occasionally I go to an arcade.
I go to the movie theater 10+ times a year.
I'm interested in writing, photography, and film. Interested, as in I'd like to be doing these things professionally and for fun.
I like card games like Setback, Rummy 500 (or Gin), and Texas Hold'em. Recently I've enjoyed playing Pretend You're Xyzzy (online clone of Cards Against Humanity) and would like to find people who play CAH. I like playing pool and bowling (only played once so far though). I've been thinking about trying indoor rock climbing. I want to buy a recurve bow and targets. I like going to concerts, but I haven't been to many. I'm open to trying new things.
I try to keep up on news, especially on science and technology. My main sources are Google News, Reddit, and Arstechnica. I watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. I usually catch the evening news too on CBS, but it's not a priority for me. I take my news with a grain of salt and don't believe Fox News should be taken seriously by anyone.
I lived in California for 2 years, when I was 19-21. I've been to Canada, Belgium, The Netherlands, France, and Germany. I'd like to see more of the world--more of the universe, if there were viable spaceflight options for the average Earthling.
TL;DR: "For the time that I've been given, I am what I am." - 5FDP
