I meant that in the most utterly sincere way possible. I hope to do good every day of my life, and hope that it shows with all I encounter.
But to answer the question more tangibly, I have a Bachelor's degree in History, as well as one in honors Philosophy from a university in Boston Massachusetts.
Since graduating I work full time, as well as hold a part time job until I decide more specifically what I would like to go back to school for. As you may have guessed from the 'philosophy' degree, my love of learning spans many disciplines, so some may say I lack direction.
I spend most of my free time with my family. After spending four years away at school I like to make up for lost time with my niece/god-daughter and her new baby brother.
I love to read though. I suppose if one were to determine a favorite book solely by the number of times he has read it, my favorite would have to be "Pride and Prejudice." Beyond that I'm partial to 'classics' in general. I've read pieces spanning from Euclid's Geometry to Newton's Pricipia to Einstein's papers. I absolutely loved Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics and its exploration of what I can only describe as the latin 'virtu.' Also am a fan of Norburg-Schultz's Genuis Loci and his unveiling of the phenomenology of architecture by defining the human experience based on our understanding on what it means 'to dwell.'
I will probably read the Bible forever, along with the never ending interpretations of it.
For a snapshot glimpse of my interests I'm currently reading "Outliers," by Malcolm Gladwell, "The Plague" by Albert Camus, "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, but by far my favorite of which has to be "I and Thou" by Martin Buber for his brilliance on the relation of man to God.
As for TV, it seems I get addicted quite easily, so I watch a lot online when I do. Guilty pleasures include House, Bones, Endgame, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy, Big Bang Theory, Community, Mistfits, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Suits, White Collar, Covert Affairs, Castle.
As for music, I love music for its breadth. Its purely pleasurable aspect and its ability to communicate, whether the storytellers need words or not. Those who can transcend the limitations of language and effect others in such an intense way is profound. I can listen to Clair de lune or Moonlight Sonata tirelessly. That being said, I like music of most genres. Lyricists who are able to weave together lyrics in multiple frameworks that inexplicably come together cohesively are the most addictive. I have fallen victim to becoming obsessed with the song or artist for a while when I come across one like that.
Food...hmmm, I have to admit I may be slightly obsessed with Greek food. Anything with tzaziki and pita and I am content :)
