I'm quite into film
—as in I'm frequently checking out
limited releases that are only playing at one theatre in hopes of
discovering something new and cool (I do like the good mainstream
stuff too). Recently, I've even gone on a trip out-of-province just
to watch movies.
I do computer programming for fun. It's an unusual hobby, but it's
my creative outlet. I first got into it when I was 7 years old and
discovered I could make stuff
with just the computer in my
parents rec room (it was so much cooler than gluing popsicle sticks
together). I also write software professionally; I think I'm pretty
lucky to have a job that's so close to what I do for fun.
I like card
. Even super simple, hokey ones that seem like they were
thought up in an afternoon and cheaply produced. In fact sometimes
those can be the most fun.
And finally, I like learning things
. And there's
still a lot I want to learn about. A few things that come to mind
are: Vancouver's live music scene, photography, cooking, theatre,
modern art and beer (tastewise, I don't even know the difference
between a lager and an ale right now).
