I love reading and learning languages. I'm fluent in Norwegian and speak it pretty much on a daily basis (because I live in Norway, fyi). I'm even trying to learn a dialect (dork/crazy?). Decent in Spanish comprehension but can't really speak it anymore because Norwegian pushed it out of brain. I learned how to read Middle English a la Chaucer in college. I cherish proper grammar and spelling. I'm kind of a dork like that. :) I get along really well with musicians and people who have travelled a considerable amount--I even seem to unconciously float towards musicians. I play viola and hardanger fiddle, which is a really crazy awesome nine-stringed sympathetic Norwegian folk violin. It's called hardingfele in Norwegian, sounds rather ethereal, and sometimes people compare it to a kinder, gentler version of bagpipes.
Often I am reading, making jewelry, knitting (mmm...textiles), writing poetry, articles or papers, speaking Norwegian, swing dancing (lindy hop), cooking, or playing music--essentially, engaging in some form of creative self-expression. If I'm doing something, chances are I'm extrememly passionate about it. That said, I do enjoy new experiences and am usually pretty much game for anything. Living in a foreign country has contributed to a wide variety of new experiences throughout the past year, some of which I knew I was getting into and other which I didn't, but did not regret them in the end. I suspect this year will be much the same, and yet totally different...
