I'm also doing the whole school thing for engineering, mainly because it dawned on me that as fun as lighting is now, it's a pretty sucky career when you're 50. Yay for responsibility and planning ahead!
My favorite books though are some of the more stereotypically masculine stuff; David Foster Wallace, Fitzgerald, McCarthy, Kafka, Pynchon, et al. I love the importance they convey, the magnitude of the themes and symbolism explored; Yukio Mishima is my current favorite for just how dark his ideas are. This list makes me cringe at times with how white and male it is, so I'm also usually searching out things to help correct that.
I love 80s sci-fi movies. Blade Runner, Indiana Jones, Alien, Star Wars, Big Trouble in Little China. The color, the atmosphere, the adventure, it always gets to me. Also, MST3k.
And then pretend I put down something really interesting for the other however many I still need. Pretend that they were interesting though; we'll have to make it believable. And trust me, I wouldn't have put something down that wasn't interesting.
I think I'll start handing people scripts, that way I'll realize my true conversation mastery. That's not weird at all.
On Saturdays I go trouble hunting.
Sundays: trouble roast (with a pineapple glaze!)
Unless somebody is, in which case I'd think you'd want to message me, to stop someone from twisting your arm. Mention that to me in your message, though, because I've got a few choice questions for the person that's twisting people's arms so that they'll message me.
