I have also spent a lot of time learning guitar and am an avid music lover.
Relating with people. I spent the last few years working with some of the most difficult kids in the state (no joke, Edgewood level 14, check it out) and had to relate to a variety of backgrounds, demographics, and diagnoses. Luckily compassion and interest in helping others helped me work alongside them. That and being a suave doofus.
Advocating. Life is too short to allow unnecessary negatives into life. My workplace didn't have the best interest of staff or clients in mind so I contacted a union and spent the next year working towards staff rights. Who knew changing the way a 160+ year old agency would come with some hiccups?
Movies: White Oleander, Boondock Saints, Poolboy 2, Casino Royale, 127 Hours, 28 Days Later, Serenity, Very Bad Things, Dogma, the Descent, Layer Cake, Pineapple Express, Identity. The funnies, the scaries, and the British are good generalizations for my taste in movies.
Shows: Coupling, Daredevil, the Walking Dead, United States of Tara, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Spartacus, Scrubs, the Daily Show. I miss Craig Ferguson in the Late Late Show.
Music: I worked at a record store for 5 years so this is long and varied. Unexpect, Meg Myers, Alice in Chains, Alestorm, Fiona Apple, Man... or Astroman?, Pink Floyd, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, Katatonia, Dargaard, Loreena McKennitt, Draconian, Garbage, Katatonia, Dan the Automater, Portishead, Morphine, Massive Attack, I can go on for a while. Melody, fast rhythms, and/or diminished scales get a thumbs up from me, generally.
Food: Indian, Thai, Mexican are all staples in my diet, probably due to being veggie, just hold the onions.
Comedians (hell yes they belong here): George Carlin, Dennis Leary, Jon Stewart, Brian Posehn, Doug Stanhope, and Jim Gaffigan.
