I used to get this thing when I read for long periods of time where I felt all floaty and up and down didn't mean anything and my body awareness went way down. Years later I would read that this is apparently a very similar experience to what you get with hardcore meditation. It seems in certain situations of intense concentration the brain will shut down extraneous noise and one of the regions it tends to shut down is that part of proprioception that tells us where our body is. I'm just trying to get that feeling back.
I'm a know-it-all that very much doesn't want to be thought of as a know-it-all. I don't know it all! I just happen to know a lot of book-stuff.
I used to be a huge music snob and saw a lot of shows; now I scarcely listen to music. An amazing song can levitate me but as an art form music has a pretty poor hit-ratio.
[UPDATE] Learning winemaking from UC Davis so I got something to spend my money on!
Recently I figured out I'm better at freestyle rapping than most people, I think for the same reason I'm really good at Wordfeud/Words with Friends.
Also modesty, all this talk of things I'm good at has begun to embarrass me.
