I did live a few years on and off in Arizona which helped a lot in appreciating where im from here in NY(I would go back to visit there within a heartbeat though). Did grow close to the couple cities i lived in out there and it was an amazing experience but i missed NY a bunch while there, especially the food.
I am also a fairly big sports fan and now that i actually have good teams to follow(Mets and Jets) it definitely helps enjoy it more. But nothing has beat seeing live games as well as concerts. Great places to be although dont love having no voice the next day.
Also just being a friend. Always there when ya need.
Another thing i've found im pretty good at is avoiding taking my phone out the second light breaks coming out of the subway tunnel.
Made a huge purchase in the literature world picking up Modernist Cuisine. Will take a few months with this 5 book series.
I'll say my top bands are Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Red HOt CHili Peppers, NIrvana, Soundgarden, MObb Deep, The Scorpions , Led Zeppelin, Eminem, and Green Day. and there are many many more.
AS for my top movies they have to be The Hangover, Bridesmaids, True Romance, The Princess Bride, Dark Knight, Hot Tub Time Machine, Superbad, Office Space, Saw, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, THe Neverending Story, Funny Games, Back to the Future, The Goonies, Requiem For a Dream, the Die hard Series and Star wars series, just IV, V and VI. I am actually looking forward to the 7th Django, Silver Linings Playbook and Argo are also the mix.
I gotta say in terms of food im fairly simple but id go with my favorite cuisines being Italian, mexican, all Asian from KOrean bbq to all Thai curries to sushi,and good old AMerican food. Yea i still can only walk into a diner and order a cheeseburger.
AS for tv i mostly live in the past watching Seinfeld, the Simpsons, IN Living Color, Modern Family, Walking Dead, as well as the Office, Top Chef, the Office, LOST, and get my Sportscenter fix in. Better Call Saul just hooked me in.
2.A blanket still when i sleep even in the summer
3.Sriracha(chili sauce that i put on everything)
4.internet(sadly i dont think id survive without it)
5.a crappy sports team(Mets) who i wouldnt know what to do if they actually won it all again
6. COMFORT...Staying warm when cold, cool when hot, and just in the right happy place
I think about the future at times although its mostly when i play lotto:-)
I also tend to spend a bit of time thinking about the dreams i had when i wake up. What they were all about, why they happened and also what saved my life this time around.
