I have a job as a workforce analyst at a large online trading company. Its not the most exciting thing, but it pays the bills, and I don't dread getting up and going to work everyday.
I play bass guitar, and recently started playing in a band again.
I also began doing martial arts again as a fun way to get shape, learn to defend myself and others, and to relieve stress.
I love animals, especially my dog. She's like my fuzzy faced little sister. Dogs also love me. Probably because I'm part yeti, so they get the animal vibe from me. I dunno....
I enjoy snowboarding and wakeboarding, though I don't get to do either as much as I used to, and that sucks.
Working and trying to better my career.
Getting back into playing music. Starting to play shows again.
Trying to be more active and healthy...I've got the exercise part covered, but I need some help with my diet.
Fantasy- Lord of the Rings, the Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Black Company, the Hitchhiker' s Guide to the Galaxy, American Gods and lots of others.
Adventure- Clive Cussler stuff is fun. Its easy and predictable, but fun.
Educational-I read books on archaeology, science, and philosophy fairly often.
Movies and TV Shows:
Fairly similar to books. Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Action/Adventure, Comedies, Martial Arts, Educational/Edutainment.
Snatch, Serenity, and The Big Lebowski are probably some of my all time favorite movies.
For TV shows I generally watch stuff like they used to play on the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and Animal Planet like Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs and Cities of the Underworld. I also enjoy Dr. Who (recent fan) and Sherlock. However I don't really watch much TV now.
Well I'll be upfront, because you will find out sooner or later...
I'm a metal head. Some of my favorite bands are Meshuggah, Opeth, Between the Buried and Me, Gojira, Mastodon, Intronaut, Crowbar, Down, Clutch, The Infectious Grooves... I could go on and on.
However, I like lots of different types of music. Anything that is well written and requires some sort of talent to play. I enjoy Jazz, Blues, Funk, and Fusion. I like some Punk and Ska. Classic Rock and Hard Rock. Some Hip Hop and some techno. Oh yeah, and Irish folk music. I really don't like country or pop.
My personal bubble
Pirates (couldn't think of any one single more thing, and who doesn't like pirates, yar!)
Sometimes I think about serious things as well... like thinking about my life, the choices I've made, where I'm going, and what I want to do next, and if I'm happy with where I am now.
Lately I've been thinking alot about how awesome it would be to give everything up and move to the mountains and live off the land. Problem is that I don't know how to hunt, trap, forage etcc.... so I'd probably die pretty fast. But that might be better than slowly wasting away in a cubicle dealing with what we're told is the "real world".
Normally I'm either at band practice, or hanging out with my friends somewhere.
