Aside from that, I work on freelance art and design projects including paintings, sculpture, musical instruments, metalwork, and 3D modeling.
Fixing things around the house.
I'll always remember "The Little Prince". When I was little, I liked that book so much that I borrowed it from the library and never returned it. I probably owe millions in library fees.
There's almost no food that I won't eat. My favorites are still Chinese and Japanese food, but I like trying new dishes (and trying to cook them, once in a while)
I don't own a TV, but back in the day, I followed X-Files religiously. Recently I really got into Naruto and The Mighty Boosh. As for movies, I tend towards the scifi (Star Trek 2009, Minority Report, Iron Man-who woulda guessed?) A few more favorites are The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Fifth Element, Tropic Thunder, The Prestige, and works by Miyazaki. I'm always up for any type of science fiction, action, or fantasy movie.
My musical preferences are scattered. Some all-time favorites are Aerosmith, Mozart, Cake, Queen, Bach, Ok Go, X Japan, some Chinese or Japanese traditional pieces, and good soundtracks.
Paper and pencil - I absolutely have to jot down my ideas.
A project (or five), stewing in my mind.
Sometimes I'll just eat a whole sheet of nori, without making it part of a sushi roll.
I prefer quiet bars over loud crowd type things. Once in a while I'll go to a club but it's not usually my thing and I'm not much of a dancer. Ok, I'll dance, to make it not weird, but yeah.
What I see as an ideal relationship goes with all this. I'd like to think that whoever I end up with, we should be happy just doing day-to-day stuff together before we think about all the trips and beaches and roller-coaster stuff to come. I'd really value communication, understanding, and patience. I see angry fights as a rare last resort, and much rather spend time enjoying each other's company.
