I love literature and would read all day, if I could. That's how I spend most my nights. (My favorite contemporary writers are Delillo, Nicholson Baker, Joy Williams, and David Foster Wallace, but I'm also a big fan of Nabokov and Raymond Carver.) On weekends, I typically like to meet with close buds at a bar to talk. Sometimes I look for something a bit more wild, but only on occasion.
I'm currently a first year grad student, so that occupies much of my time. I'm studying to become a social worker. I studied English and Political Science in undergrad, so that might give you some idea of what my interests are.
I come from a big family. It can take me a while to open up, but, once I do, my friends tell me I'm hard to shut up.
I really enjoy movies, but I'm really critical of most. I try watch a fair mix of old foreign films -- I.e. Ingmar Bergman films -- and lighter stuff, though even then I lean towards indie films. I also like bad horror movies. If nothing else, you can at least laugh at/be grossed out by them.
In terms of music, I mostly listen to twee and indie pop, but late 70's punk, post-punk, and new wave will always hold a soft spot in my heart.
I'd also like to think I'm funny, but that might be debatable.
