I spend as much time as I can with with my 8-year old daughter, who already seems to be turning into a teenager! I also like listening to music - pretty much anything with an energetic beat, although I seem to have 'grown out of' heavy metal.
Coming up with random philosophical one-liners which to me at least sound like they could be quotes from famous scholars (could I get any more arrogant - sorry).
Using grammar, not so good at spelling, but my laptop helps with that, but what I'm best at when it comes to writing is general conceptualisation and philosophical waffle - my university tutor said I should be a journalist, a comment based on her reading of my first assignment!
Coming up with rather innovative and in some ways almost brutish methods of getting the job done/round problems - I just wish I could apply the same principal to the tasks that make up my job!
I have in the distant past, negotiated a few interpersonal problems between people - easy when they're not trying to kill each other :)
