-- My New Year's Resolution
It's hard for me to meet people and not smile at them. My attitude toward anyone is friendly until they prove to me that it shouldn't be. Honestly, in my entire life, there's been only one person that's been deserving of that, but that's a story for another time. Overall, though, I have a pretty optimistic opinion about people, and I hardly see a reason to be unfriendly. I don't think that part of my personality will ever change.
Recently, however, I've come to realize that my optimism needs to be tempered with the reality of being an adult, hence the New Year's resolution I have above. It's something that I will be working on over the course of the next year.
I want to find time to do some outdoor activities like hiking, since one's entire life should not be spent indoors in front of a computer. I recently went on a trip to Peru to hike the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu for several days. It kicked my butt, but I still loved it and would love to do more big backpacking trips like that.
I'm good with computers, and, while we're on nerd topics, I'm pretty darn good at math. I also have an innate visual artistic sense that I'd like to use more.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Burn Notice, Bones, Chuck, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Torchwood, How I met Your Mother. Also a fan of Avatar: The Last Airbender (and Legend of Korra), the entire DCAU, The Spectacular Spiderman, and various anime. So what if they're kid shows, they're still awesome.
Movies: I can enjoy pretty much any movie. Favorites include V for Vendetta, Star Wars (the original trilogy), LoTR, Harry Potter, Scott Pilgrim, The Matrix (first one), The Dark Knight Trilogy... I'm probably missing a bunch. Also a huge animation fan, for both 2D and 3D animation. Especially Pixar. I freaking love Pixar.
Music: I'm not really picky about music. I do like mainstream music, even though it can get overplayed. It's difficult to pin down which artists are my favorite, since most artists will have at least one song that I like.
Food: Not picky, but I do like food from other places in the world.
2. Phone - This is how I'm close with my family ;)
3. Friends - I've got a good group of friends here and an even closer group back in Indiana that I try hard to keep in touch with.
4. Computer - I work with them, and I use one all the time at home. That's how I'm on this site, after all :)
5 & 6. Um... food and water?
