I put in the effort to keep my friendships growing, and at least keep in touch with many of the exceptional people I've met over the years. I love getting a friend or three together and searching for the rare hole-in-the-wall restaurant with excellent food.
I keep up on world affairs, but find myself numbing to national politics. I voted for Obama, but am disappointed with how he's failing to make the positive changes that were promised. At this point, I'd easily vote Stewart/Colbert, or even Pinky/Brain next time around. I find Eddie Izzard's monologues apply in far too many situations, and hope he really does run for Parliament.
Living in CO means I've really come to love being outdoors, but I enjoy the urban life just as much. I might go hiking now and then, or camping (novice at both), but I'm at least as likely to stay in the city for the weekend. Parks, BBQs, biking, street festivals... evenings at concerts, roller derby, or just out with friends... Maybe I've stayed home for the night if that's what I felt like doing, but there's plenty of choices and opportunities.
