I enjoy many types of music, from classic rock to metal, some country, some jazz, a lot of blues, and some classical. I have started a collection of art books. I love to read books and to relax every once in a while. More recently I am working on getting back into better shape. Sadly that lapsed a little as I focused on getting into my career.
I tend to be an independant thinker. I firmly believe that far too many people just believe what they are told, and never question it! I have a firm enjoyment of learning, and I am constantly working on learning something new. I've self-taught myself a very basic understanding of several languages, and a little bit about metallurgy, in the last year. Really, it's whatever strikes my fancy on a given day!
I largely self-educated through public schooling (Seriously, too easy) and never went to an official college. I have some credits from training for jobs... and could probably finish a degree easily if I decided to do so. I just never really felt the need. It's more fun, and more effective, to just start looking up something and learn it!
I enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen is a ton of fun. Making something new, that may never have been made before is a thrill! I usually end up with a new dish at the end of experiments... but every now and then I just decide I had a bad idea. Some things just should not be made!!!
