My work is a huge part of my life, but I don't let it stop me too much from enjoying other parts of life. I'm fairly laid-back and don't let much get to me. I value communication and honesty and wish for the same in a partner.
I enjoy many things like traveling, art (making and sometimes viewing), bowling, trivia, game nights, the occasional hike, chilling with friends and colleagues for a beer/food/bbq, Netflix, and video games. Don't be surprised if you end up shot with a Nerf dart 😀
Beyond my career, I've been enjoying bowling on a league again, but am taking a break currently, going to the occasional trivia night, try to explore my creative interests when I can, and just spending time with friends doing whatever the night calls for.
I'm also good at working with my hands. I can cook, build Ikea furniture, hang paintings, repair random things, or build a house. You know, the normal stuff.
I'm pretty good at going with the flow as well. It's good to give the rational mind a rest every now and then.
What am I not good at? Running. Convincing myself that I don't need ice cream. Shutting down Netflix after one episode.
Shows: Archer, Bob's Burgers, Big Bang Theory, BSG, West Wing, Veep, About A Boy, Broad City, The League, and soooo many others. I need to start the new season of Daredevil.
Food: I love food. Lets get some sometime! Just know that I prefer not to eat seafood. But I had some fried squid in Miami that was gatdamn amazing.
Books: I read the news daily (of course the comics as well). I mostly read non-fiction related to poverty, economics, politics, transportation, and housing. That's what I read for fun. I can't tell you when the last time was that I read a fiction book. Currently reading: Evicted. Last read: Naked City.
Music: my taste in music changes with my mood. I listen to a little bit of everything and don't really pay attention to who's playing or what the song title is (serious weak point in my trivia abilities). Right now I've been really into Tech N9ne but have a rather eclectic shuffle of over 10 Pandora stations going on.
A bike (I don't own a car and I prefer it that way)
Netflix (it's an addiction)
Something to learn
My mind (even though sometimes it drives me crazy)
Something to explore (is this different from something to learn?)
I find riding my bike in pouring rain to be a strangely meditative experience.
I have been electrocuted more times than I think anyone should be subjected to.
It's an odd deal breaker, but it's something I've learned over the years: we're not going to work out if your ideal future involves moving to the middle of nowhere and living off the land.
