The last year plus has been a period of great growth for me. Although I consider myself an agnostic I feel that I have gotten much more in touch with my (for want of a better word) spiritual side. It's a journey I look forward to continuing alone, with friends and possibly with a partner in crime.
After some years working in tech I found myself having the luxury of being able to take some real time off. I got involved in community. I rode my bike a lot and partied with friends and quietly read by the banks of the Charles river. Time well spent.
I have a weird sense of humor.
I have discovered the benefits of minimalism in my life.
People like me. Just this last weekend I threw a party at my house and 20 people showed up. I love my friends, don't know what I would do without them.
Although I love to be social I am an extroverted introvert - I need time alone to process, meditate and recover. I am often the life of the party but yet can be painfully anxious approaching new social situations).
I'm also still trying to figure out dating. I'm getting better at it I think.
I suppose I have a pretty broad range of musical tastes and I will admit to listening to some dreadful music for no reason other then it reminds me of key times in my life (c'mon, is there really any other reason to listen to "We Built This City" by Starship?). But to be honest my memories of sitting by a campfire or at a party with close friends singing as a friend plays guitar are so much richer then any stadium show I have ever attended.
Books. Yes. Recent fave was "The Power of Now"
Movies Yes. Recent fave was Spotlight. A reminder of how a powerful institution (the Catholic Church in this case) could put it's own wants ahead of people who were victims. And a reminder of the importance of journalism in shining a light on these types of crimes.
TV Shows - Recent faves. Walking Dead and Downton Abbey (which is funny because I am not a fan of British period dramas or horror)
I believe in the power of stories. Without them who are we?
2 - Utilities (gas/water/electric)
3 - Stories
4 - My various devises that keep me informed, entertained and connected
5 - Beverages (beer, coffee)
6 - You (OK, that was a bit hokie I admit, but it made you smile)
Or I am at home alone reading or trying to organize my life
