I'm pretty into politics. I love keeping up with what's going on in Washington (usually not much, sadly). I lean to the left, especially on the social issues, but I try to get along with everyone. I'm not a liberal, exactly; I'm an independent with some views scattered over the spectrum. Ultraconservatives probably need not apply, although I'm going to stay pretty open-minded.
I really enjoy video games. That's my main method of getting rid of stress. For an abbreviated list of games I like, see the favorite media section below; the entire list is quite long. I'm mainly a 360 player, although I've been playing a lot of PC games lately. If you've got an interest in video games, that's a big plus.
One big interest I have is trying new, interesting food and drink. I do enjoy adventurous dining. If there's something odd on the menu, I'm probably up for trying it. Food keeps us alive. It might as well be interesting. Exciting, even. I love cooking as well, and I think I'm pretty good at it. Also, I love craft beer. Anything with unusual flavors or colors or ingredients or background is right up my alley. Trying interesting craft beers and microbrews is really a passion of mine. Good beer is good. And now I've started brewing beer at home. It's very tasty. And it's science at work!
In the past, I considered majoring in English, Computer Engineering, Psychology, Technical Theatre, Communication and Theatre Arts, Video Game Design and Development, Education, and Marketing. Now, I've settled on Computer Science. I would claim that I'm a Renaissance man, but I don't have the art part down. I can't even draw a decent stick figure. Can I just count cooking as my art? I love cooking. Also, I'm good at it.
I'm currently trying to turn a page in my life, but the pages seem to all be stuck together.
