I've been in New York for about seven years, living in Brooklyn for most of that time.
I love my job (most of the time), but I see it more as a means to an end. I think there is a lot more to life outside the office. I spend a lot of my free time getting outside (and out of the city if I can) hiking, biking, canoeing, rock climbing, surfing (I'm terrible at it, but I like it). But I also don't mind putting in a bit of couch time too.
I love to travel, but everyone says that, so I'll be more specific: I prefer to book a plane ticket somewhere and figure out where I'll stay and what I'll do once I'm there. I don't love being a tourist in big cities, and prefer to see smaller towns, and spend time exploring the jungles/deserts/mountains/deserted beaches/forests that wherever I am has to offer.
I like to cook. I'll bake you cookies.
I'm always interested learning new things. Recently I've been learning to play the guitar (I'm terrible at this too but it's a lot of fun), and I've been playing with a very old film SLR camera. Both things make me pretty happy.
