On a typical Friday night I am
Totally depends but....

Bar
Working out
Homework
Games
Restaurant
Hanging with friends/family
Long night drives with music blasting

Not into clubbing or any of that shit, and I'm not a big drinker I think it's a huge waste of money (but also have a blast whenever I go...)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a fear of ledges, splinters, and breaking bones

If you mention your love for god, the bible, or religion in general it just isn't going to work out.
