(I'll totally consider pen-pals as well - there used to be an option for that)
But outside of the day-job, I'm just making it up as I go. I have a bad addiction to starting new things, and a bad habit of never finishing - constantly looking for new experiences and perspectives and entertainment in life.
I'm currently learning piano, and that I've managed to stick with it for four months is a complete surprise. If this continues I might sort-of-not-really-but-kinda not suck at it soon!
Growing a beard.
Achieving a decent life balance between spur-of-the-moment-fuck-it-I'm-doing-that and carefully-balanced decisions. (Honestly, both approaches are super important)
Making jokes that are really not funny, but somehow making them work and getting away with it.

"Another friend just got married/had a kid/took out a mortgage/has started a pension - are they growing up too fast or am I growing up too slow?"
"Do I want to beat the high score and prove to everyone I rock ultimate or do I want to just play the next hot thing everyone says I have to play?"
"If I hit the snooze button again, will the 15 minutes extra sleep supercharge me so I can get ready for work 15 minutes faster?"
Look, I'll make this easy for you: with all the savings you get from having a friend with such varied taste in things, a "fuckit, I'll try that" attitude and roguish good looks (or just good looks if you don't like rogues), how can you afford to NOT message me?
(spoiler: you can't )
(Seriously, can I also stress the "friends" thing? I'm sure you're beautiful but I don't want in on your pants!)
