I have many interests and goals. I love both the great outdoors and the great indoors and love to spend time in both places (though I'm still trying to get used to Florida humidity). I love to travel and learning more about the world around me. I love to sing (any venue from choir to the shower) and do so often. I love books, movies, theater, TV, and video games - anything with an engaging story... just for clarification though this is by no means a majority of my time. I've even tried some creative writing myself (nothing I'd care to share yet). I want to get back into camping and other outdoors activities some day, especially as I'm still pretty new to Florida and have much to explore. I hope to find other opportunities to sing. I want to learn how to be a REALLY good cook, though I only like cooking for other people (not just myself). I also want to get in better shape, and want to start running again. I'm pretty ameteur right now, but have a goal to try to work my way up to a half marathon within the next two years.

Music: Anything other than what I don't like. I have eclectic taste in music. The only types of music I do not like are scream metal and hardcore rap. I really enjoy acapella
Food: I enjoy trying many new things (just please no organs or Rocky Mountain Oysters, etc). I really like steak, Chinese, Mexican, pizza, and trying new types of food that I've never tried before (for instance a favorite from this summer was Dim Sum).
3) Car/other mode of transportation
Where I'd like to travel/explore
Books/movies/shows that interest me
Funny/ironic things (like au jus sauce, or ATM machine)
Teaching strategies (I like to use interactive learning when I can figure it out)
Small creative projects (not claiming to be Shakespeare, but I'll give it a shot)
Hanging out at home.
Going out somewhere (usually a restaurant or downtown, though I've often tried to avoid the college scene in the past).
Going to a movie.
Helping out with a school event.
It sounds like we might have anything to talk about.
You'd like a random conversation.
I am interested in both dates and friends. I'm still relatively new to Gainesville and don't know many people (which is an odd experience for me).
