I might be a nerd, but I appreciate more kinds of smarts than book smarts in other people, and it's more important to be nice, anyway. In any case, conversation is key.
I mostly like to hang out with my friends, read, listen to music, watch DVDs, shop for CDs and books, swim, and take solitary walks. Every now and then, it's fun to go out dancing.
