I also enjoy learning history, currently learning about the 5th to 11th centuries. It is interesting to see were cultures and ideas came from.
I'm hoping to do some traveling at some point, but would really like someone to share that experience with. Some of my possible destinations would be Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Japan, and Germany.
Movies: I watch a wide variety, though usually not a huge fan of slashers. As favorites, I'd have to list The Princess Bride, Star Wars (especially episodes 4-6), and Lord of the Rings.
I haven't had cable for 6ish years, but I do try to keep up with Castle and Grimm. Past that, I'm not sure what the newest shows are. Also, Farscape is just awesome.
Music: Mostly Country or Christian, some symphonic metal (Within Temptation, Kamelot and Nightwish are the main ones I listen to), some rock and pop. Just found a group I really like called Pandora Celtica. I'm usually listening to audiobooks these days, however.
Food: Steak and potatoes, Sushi.
some form of exercise (currently TKD mostly)
some place to call home (I do want to travel more, just like having a place to call home after the trips).
