I like taking long walks, and I'm a fan of the Boston trail, as well as Boyce Park, and I'm no stranger to Schenley and Frick parks!
I also like shooting pool, going bowling, and used to be a super-avid dek hockey player, although in recent years it's been hell trying to get a team together to play just to have fun.
I suppose I should also note/warn people--I'm still in touch with my inner child. I wouldn't say that this makes me immature, but I will say that I think nothing of running around and roughhousing with my little cousins at family functions, nor taking a running leap onto the middle of the suspension bridge at the Pittsburgh Zoo the last time I was there.
I could also say that I'm optimistic on life overall, even though I may have a cynical bend at times. I will acknowledge that there are evils in the world, but I still believe that overall, people are good, that everyone deserves a chance (and occasionally second chances), and that true love, fidelity, and happy endings are not outdated, nor extinct.
I also love to read, I'm not big on watching television, and I enjoy playing video games every now and then, although most of that should be covered down in the "my favorites" section.
I'm also trying to fulfill my dream of becoming a published author! I haven't had much luck with agents so far, but I'll be damned if I'm going to give up.
(b) I'm not much for movies unless I have someone to watch them with, most times, but I enjoy action/adventure, horror, and comedy.
(c) The Cardigans, The Creepshow, KT Tunstall, Florence and the Machine, and The Eagles
(d) lasagna, spaghetti, chicken and noodles, chocolate chip pancakes, beef stir-fry, Thanksgiving dinner, to name a few. I'm willing to try almost anything once!
-family (I would go crazy without them, no matter how much I might say they drive me crazy now)
-my car. It sounds materialistic, but really, I don't know how the hell I managed to make it on public transportation for several years.
-computer. My writing, my music, and the easiest way to keep in touch with most of my friends.
-foodstuffs to insure my continued existence
-music. It might be the single greatest thing to keep someone sane in this hectic, crazy world.
