Also, I should probably put this upfront- I'm highly interested in adoption/fostering (of both animals and kids), so if we're going to be more than friends, like in the long run, you gotta want kids too. Otherwise, friendship is magic.
About a year ago, I left my job as an assisted living caretaker, helping an awesome and emotive guy with multiple disabilities. I currently volunteer regularly at both Centro Hispano and the Catholic Multicultural Center (or Centro Guadalupe) to improve my Spanish and also all the people there are really cool and stuff.

Making flashcards (I make a lot of flashcards)
Avoiding chores and feeling guilty about it
DOING chores and feeling too exhausted to do anything else the rest of the day
As for music, I tend to gravitate towards oldies (especially from the '70s- lots of happy music, really miserable decade), but I do enjoy some current music. I consider my tastes eclectic, and listening to a song that tries absolutely nothing new is torture for me. Although it's rare that I enjoy more than two songs from any given band, there are certainly standouts: Billy Joel (who is my favorite of favorites, ever since before I could talk), Styx, Jason Mraz (first three studio albums), Matchbox 20, The Beatles, Elliott Smith, Ximena Sariñara, Seal, Calle 13, Muse, Fleet Foxes, Boston, Béla Fleck, Claude Bolling, Common Market, Elton John, Green Day, John Mayer (his early stuff), Wings/Paul McCartney, Yes, Awolnation, Yelawolf, Natalia Lafourcade, Los Bunkers, Ana Tijoux, The Shins, Gustavo Cerati, Maria Rita, Shakira, Cirse, Plastiko, Eruca Sativa, Buena Vista Social Club, Huevo, M.I.A, Lupe Fiasco (1st album only), Foo Fighters, Blues Traveler, The Beach Boys
I also ADORE classical composers, such as Brahms, Gliere, Bruckner, Rachmaninov, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Kurt Atterberg.... the list goes on and on.
For TV: Top Gear, Slings and Arrows, Seinfeld, M*A*S*H, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Futurama, Scrubs, Silicon Valley, Girls, 30 Rock, Daria, Mozart in the Jungle, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Downton Abbey, Broad City, New Girl, The Office, Friends, Orange is the New Black, Transparent
Food: I usually prefer to do my own cooking than to eat out (it's cheaper and usually healthier). I like simple stuff- a stew of onions, collards and beans, ramen with bok choy... If I am eating out, Lao/Vietnamese/Thai food is my first choice. I'm pretty sure Vietnamese restaurant owners made a deal with the devil somewhere down the line, which is why they seem to be able to obtain the best produce all year round.
Books: Sadly, my ADD can get in the way of me finishing any one book- however, I love magazines, newspapers, and interesting online articles. I try to spend more time learning other languages than reading things in English. I do love Harry Potter, though- of course. And there are plenty of books I've heard nothing but good things about that I KNOW I should read and I WILL ONE DAY DAMMIT.
6)Things to distract me from the fact that life is a meaningless, awkward venture that will ultimately end in me watching all my loved ones die and then I die and then everybody dies and then eventually the Earth is swallowed up by the sun and...
*ahem* I mean, uh.... puppies?
Alternatively, you could message me if you are a "wonderer"- somebody who questions "why?" about everything. I'm not necessarily looking for an activist, but it's very important to me that my partner care at least a little about environmental issues, animal rights, and humanitarian causes. What I'm trying to say is, I'm a bleedin' heart liberal and I'm looking for another.
Also note that I am pretty new to the dating process, so bear with me here. If I'm honest, I'm not that sexual a person (well, in theory I am, but IRL... different story). That doesn't mean I'm not open to trying new things, but if you're more on the hyper-sexual side, things probably wouldn't work out for us as a couple.
Here are some more passions of mine (maybe you don't have anything else in common with me... but if you love anything listed below, message me anyway so we can gush about it together!):
Parrots and rats- my favorite pets (though of course I love cats and dogs, too);
Comic strips (like Calvin and Hobbes and Foxtrot, not graphic novels- nothing wrong with graphic novels of course, they're just not specifically my thing)
Going for long walks;
Cracked.com, and iwastesomuchtime, and these goofball movie critics at doubletoasted.com
