I started taking a dance class... I joined Couch Surfing... I take weekends off to play games with friends... I love to fill my schedule with fun stuff. Any excuse to try something different.
...teacher voice. The tone that says, "Stern, but compassionate. Patient, but expecting results. Professional, but snarky as hell."
...not using my phone. Seriously, I go for days not looking at that thing.
It was worth a shot. Tough question, though, since I see myself every day. So the first thing I notice is usually, "Wow, I look like I was beaten with sleep." (Sidenote: Not a morning person.)
--Adolescent fantasy trash (gives me street cred at school)
--Grownup urban fantasy trash
--Anything light and witty. I love a good laugh.
--What is this... "Mooo-vee" of which you speak?
--Seriously... I don't watch many movies at all.
--Melodramatic space documentaries
--Anything narrated by Morgan Freeman
--Country and bluegrass-inspired groups. Delta Rae, Hooray for the Riff Raff, Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons.
--Unique sounds. CocoRosie, The Ditty Bops, Rasputina, Bjork.
--Lots more and with great variety. Although I tend not to listen to the popular songs... no reason, just don't really do it.
--The spicier, the better.
--Korean. Kimchi FTW.
--Vietnamese. Although I still pronounce it "foh" instead of "fuh."
On the grand map of geekiness, I'm square set in the gamer geek category.
...if you did and you do, go for it!
