I would like to learn to speak French or Esperanto but it's hard to feel motivated without anyone to practice with. I really would like to be fluent in at least a few languages.
I try to pratice Epicurean Hedonism, that is to say, seeking out pleasure but with an eye towards balance. "Send me a [slice] of cheese that I might have a feast." ~Epicurus It's about enjoying everything in just the right measure. ;-)
Although I often feel misanthropic, I am a humanist. And have a strong respect for human rights. Dictators, fascists and any who would oppress another human are at the top of my personal mortal enemies list.

Some books that I have enjoyed are: On Bullshit, The Abuse of Evil, The Secrets of Happiness, Awareness, The Alchemist, Tricks of the Mind, Outliers, Blink, Ender's Game, The Count of Monte Cristo, Dracula. I am currently reading The Freedom Manifesto and Free Culture.
Movies: I love to watch movies, but my favorites are few and far between. I like seeing new movies much more than rewatching old favorites. For me, it's all about that "wow factor." Something has to have made me think. It has to make me see the world differently than I did before.
Some random favorites are: V for Vendetta, The Usual Suspects, The Butterfly Effect, Fight Club, SLC Punk, The Count of Monte Cristo, Flawless, The Island, Addams Family (+Values), Oscar, Seeking a Friend For The End Of The World Ex Mahina.
Shows: Star Trek (most of them), Firefly, Simpsons, That 70's Show, Better Off Ted, Broad City, Archer.
Music: I love LOTS of music. Music is such a big and important part of life! It can enhance or change your mood. It can elicit thought and creativity. I like at least a little bit of all genres of music, but I LOVE Jazz!
Food: I love good food! (what hedonist wouldn't?) Lately I have been trying to reduce my consumption of animal products but I am still an omnivore. As with everything in life, It's all about the right ballane. ;-)
Of course, I'm not a real vampire. ~_^ I am just being dramatic for fun. I don't drink blood or have super powers or anything cool like that but I am a lifelong night dweller. It's a sleep disorder called, delayed sleep phase (DSP).
All I want is to make some new friends and let those friendships take whatever course they will.
If anything you have read here has piqued your interest or curiousoty, or if you might like to go for a simple hike, a picnic, for coffee or any other simple adventure, send me a message. ;-) ~W~
