I’m a firm believer in the Golden Rule, Karma, whatever you want to call it; do right by others and they will do right by you. I’m very even-keeled, I almost never get mad but I also rarely get so excited that I start jumping up and down. I like discovering new music and going to concerts, even more so with good company. Some of the other things I enjoy include hiking, taking drives (not always with a destination in mind), spending time with loved ones, cooking and Cheeseburgers (!). My friends say it is impossible for me to lie convincingly and I cannot hold a grudge for more than a day.
I really like to:
- Go to the gym - I'm not a triathlete and I won't be entering any bodybuilding contests, but I really enjoy my time at the gym for a multitude of reasons (health, physical appearance, stress relief, etc.)
- Attend game nights with friends - Pretty self explanatory, but it's always a good time when you get to think and have fun.
- Read - I love the alternate realities that a good author can transport you to, my favorite aspect of reading is building the world the author describes in my imagination.

Movies -- I like movies, but don't really have a passion for them. Action and Comedy are my go-to genres.
Shows -- Recently got into Grimm. Top Gear entertains me to no end. Friends will always be near the top of my list.
Music -- Another eclectic category, here's a sampling of my current playlist: Jay-Z/Kanye, Marianas Trench, Parachute, Chiddy Bang, All Time Low, The Material, The Dangerous Summer, Mayday Parade, Lights, Jason Mraz, Ellie Goulding, ad nauseam.
Food -- Pretty much anything, although I'm not very keen on swimmers. I equally enjoy discovering new restaurants / types of cuisine, as well as experimenting with recipes I've never made before.
You ever look at someone and wonder if they're a cyborg sent back in time in an effort to save the human race.
