I started back to college recently as well although I haven't fully decided what I ultimately want to major in because it changes daily.
I would like to spend most of my free time going on hikes, doing puzzles or spending time with my family but life rarely works out that way. I have a pretty big family.
The reality is that I mostly spend all of my time that I'm not at work either doing homework or letting my brain rest because I've spent every other waking moment doing homework or playing with my nieces. More recently I also spend a lot of time helping my parents. I've never been good at balancing life and school. I've never had the ability to choose anything else over the people in my life because it feels more important to make the most of life and enjoy it.
I'm also fairly good at finding art projects for my nieces to do.
Some favorite movies are: the Usual Suspects, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, 500 days of Summer, Big Lebowski, Star Wars, Batman movies, X-Men movies, Royal Tenenbaums, Snatch, Serenity, Shawshank Redemption, Joe vs. the Volcano, Back to the Future trilogy, Bladerunner, Garden State, Moonrise Kingdom, I (heart) Huckabees, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Ghost Busters, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fight Club, the Brat Pack movies(Breakfast Club, Weird Science, 16 Candles, etc.) pretty much anything by Wes Anderson (there's something very real and comforting about them) and probably a bunch more I could watch hundreds of times.
Music too. I grew up on a mix of country and everything else. My grandpa liked big bands from the 20's so I like those and classical as well. My mom and grandmother got me liking country. I love a lot of 80's stuff and pretty much everything from the 50's through 70's. Some of my favorites are: the Beatles of course, Sense Fail, Bloc Party, Interpol, Weezer, James Taylor, Elton John, and Kate Nash. I listen to a lot
of one hit wonders or mixes with only a few songs by each band. I listen to Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky probably the most.
I don't really watch a ton of TV. Mostly because I hate reality TV. I have a thing for tattoos though so I do watch some of the shows about tattoos. I loved Arrested Development, Better Off Ted and Six Feet Under but when I stay home sick I tend to watch hours of various versions of NCIS. More recently I've become addicted to Chuck and Doctor Who! I try to not love shows until they're not new anymore in case they get cancelled so I tend to only watch really old shows or already cancelled things when I do watch TV. For laughs I go for random episodes of World's Dumbest.. I also love to watch Top Gear(British of course!)
My favorite books are: American Gods, A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Giver, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, High Fidelity and the Stephanie Plum series. I actually love to read but since I got a job working with books I just can't seem to read any. School keeps me too busy. I take them home or carry them around with me for a few weeks but never actually open them. If you have any recommendations please share.
Douglas Adams once said that it is a mistake to think that most problems can be solved using only potatoes. I tend to disagree. I'm a huge fan of most forms of potatoes and they do make me feel better.
I'm currently reading Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman and You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes Sense by Bukowski.
I have to add books. I really do love books.
Of course anyone could live without these things but these are the things I would never want to do without. Also, six is really just a guideline :-)
- Guys who like girls
- Ages 28–37
- Near me
- Who are single
- For long-term dating, short-term dating
Of course, not having a problem with piercings or tattoos is good too since I have both. I don't have a bunch but I have some and will probably get more.
Over the years I've become a bit shy when it comes to dating. Especially online because I actually am a very social person. I read these lengthy lists of what guys want in a girl and I'm just not that perfect so I don't send messages out easily. I'm sure I'm much easier to talk to in person.
