In my free time I'm an avid explorer and traveler (whenever I can, although lately I'm becoming more of a homebody), and I practice what I preach: I love reading and am currently running out of bookshelf space.
Not to brag, but I am a good singer. I like to belt one out every now and again, although I don't sing regularly anymore-- well, that is, outside of the car and the shower.
I have excellent grammar, and I know all of the words to Meatloaf's "Paradise By the Dashboard Light."
Movies-- Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Royal Tenenbaums, An Education, The Apartment, Midnight in Paris, The Graduate, Once, Amelie
Music-- I'm an avid listener of NPR pop culture/music podcasts, so I will listen to pretty much anything they recommend. Special favorites include Stars, A Fine Frenzy, Damien Rice, Dean & Britta, Simon & Garfunkel, The Magnetic Fields, Joni Mitchell, The Civil Wars, Rilo Kiley...and so on. I also love jazz, French ye-ye music, and rockabilly/swing.
Shows-- I take guilty pleasure in The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance, and Top Chef. I also think Parks and Rec is genius.
Food-- I love trying new types of food, so I guess I'll list what I could do without: cheeseburgers, chili, bacon, and Mexican food.
2) my family
4) cultural experiences/activity
6) intellectual curiosity combined with zest for life (along with time alone to think and process...I'm most definitely an introvert, so my decompression time is key)
