I'll let time deal with the rest.
Minimizing and reaffirming...
Studying...as I am a nerd by and large
Compartmentalizing and cleaning...
More specifically: rise against, brand new, apocalyptica, cage the elephant, july talk, oasis, kula shaker ... The list can go on...
Books: escape fiction ( fantasy, sci-fi, or anything that catches my eye), shantaram, The Dresden Files, invalids home from hot climates...to list a few.
Movies: the Lord of the rings, fight club, the pianist, only lovers left alive...psychological thrillers...don't give me any of that romance crap
-saving the planet...one bottle and can at a time...
-you want to plan a trip overseas
-you play table tennis!
-priortize an emotional and intellectual connection over a shallow physical one
-I'm open to meeting in person, it makes getting to know one another that much more personable
