I try to keep busy even besides work. I often find myself wandering the city finding new restaurants and coffee shops. In Tucson I was taking a Kung FU class which I enjoyed a lot. We did meditation, breathing work and of course non-violent self defense. Leaving Tucson meant I had to leave that :( . For now I have been taking yoga and I may have found a place I like. Oh, and often I take on random hobbies. For instance I recently built a homemade 'laptop' (pretty nerdy I know). Unfortunately, I would usually bring it with me when I drove to coffee shops which I don't do much here in Portland (hard to pass up a walk on a nice day); so I'm stuck with my sleek futuristic (not as powerful / cool) work laptop :). Ask me about it if you think you might have some nerdy-ness in you.
You can check out my youtube channel with some of my project videos if you wish:
Lets see, what else: I have a cat (Abby) and she is quite great. Some people say she has some attributes of a dog (like the companionship and licking), but she still has a bit of an independent streak! We did drive all the way from Tucson to Portland together, and it was quite the exciting drive!
That's it for now. I look forward to hearing from you. If it is during the week and I'm on call I might not reply immediately, but I'll try.
Favorite quote: "Wisdom outweighs any wealth" -Sophocles
My friend once told me that the way my eyes react while talking to someone looks as though I am always analyzing (probably quite true) and this can be a bit intimidating. I have been told I have nice teeth also.
80's rock, alternative rock
Criminal Minds, Law and Order, Stargate, Globe Trekker, Seinfeld, Sleepers, ...
Random Science YouTube videos (what category does that fall under)
I read random non-fiction books. Right now I'm reading "Physics of the future" and I just read "The Youth Pill". As for fiction, usually random, but I like Time Travel Sci-Fi books these days. I am think my favorite genre might actually be Hard Sci-Fi, but I recently read Crime and Punishment and loved it.
