It's important to me to minimize complications and stress in my life.
It's also important to me to minimize eating olives.
I also entertain myself endlessly, usually with friends around to bear witness. I like going on trips of all kinds.
Self-improvement is important to me, whether through diet/exercise or learning about philosophy or the natural world.
I own a house and pay my bills on time. That's so hot right now.
I make an incredible steak, good pancakes or crepes, and a tasty margarita!
Books: I'm a huge fan of well-developed plot twists. The Martian, Ender's Game, Foundation, Flowers for Algernon.
Movies: LotR, Matrix, Star Wars (yes, the trinity). All the Marvel movies. My favorite comedy is Team America, though I recently saw What We Do In The Shadows and completely lost my mind laughing. I love movies!
TV: Rick & Morty is the best show ever, but TV has gotten seriously great. I also love Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, South Park, New Girl, Arrested Development.
Games: Zelda, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Metroid, Assassin's Creed. Just the tip of the iceberg though.
Music: I love music with many layers that all work together, and apparently I also like modal harmonies. Thank pandora.com for that analysis :). Examples: older Muse, Moby, Steve Jablonsky, Yasunori Mitsuda.
Food: ALL kinds. Salmon sushi, a medium-rare filet mignon, or perfectly seared foie gras. I strike a balance between going with foods I've enjoyed before and experimenting with new (sometimes even scary) menu items. Have I mentioned "no olives"?
Naturally, I'm not answering this in terms of basics like "water" or "family and friends".
Of course... I'd be remiss not to mention checking out the latest Redbox or streaming feature.
