In my free time, I exercise, travel, go to events/festivals/concerts, kick it around my apartment, keep myself entertained, and I'm volunteering on a creative art project. There's some great spots in Syracuse, and they're mostly still fresh to me, so it's fun discovering them.
Books: I love to read. Douglas Adams, H.S. Thompson, Patrick Rothfuss, and Steven King are some of my favorite authors.
Shows: The best dramas are breaking bad and walking dead. I also think Always Sunny is the funniest show ever. Commercials and laugh tracks bug the crap out of me though.
Music: Rock, funk, soul, electronica, industrial, metal, hip hop, and Tom Waits. Toes a tappin', lips a smilin', or blood a boilin'.
Food: Sushi, Chinese, Subs,... let's just save each other some time by stating that I'm a foodie - I like it all, mostly.
2. Music - as much as possible really
3. A job, at least for the next 30-40 years
4. Messages from my mother about her cats - she's going all cat lady on us, but I like to hear from her from time to time.
5. Knowing that there are incredible people peppered all over the planet
I could be partying all night or cooking at home and reading a book. I stopped worrying about what I should be doing to look cool some time ago.
