I love reading books, playing video games, watching a few YouTube channels and listening to a few podcasts. I also enjoy playing tabletop games and certain card games. If weather permits, I'll gladly go hiking, cycling, swimming, or play paintball.
My passions run deep, and when something sparks my interest I will often latch on with voracious curiosity. At least, so long as I can remember what that is.
Wait, what was I talking about?
Besides that, I'm very busy being a social hermit and living under a rock.
Spouting out useless bits of random trivia at inopportune moments
I'm a decent writer and like to draw from time to time. I have about a 50-50 chance of making awesome food or setting the kitchen on fire.
Like my taste in books, I love fantasy, sci-fi and fictional movies. I'm also very fond of the horror genre and animated movies have a special place in my heart. Typically, I like my movies to have a significant storyline and good characters - I don't care much for summer popcorn flicks if they're purely visual affairs. Three favorites are The Nightmare Before Christmas, Wall-E and Mad Max: Fury Road.
I don't watch all that much television, I instead supplement the bulk of my viewership with several youtube channels. Of what TV I do watch, my favorite shows include Game of Thrones (I stopped where the books stop), The Wire and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Other noteworthy shows include Stranger Things, Q.I., One-Punch Man, Rick and Morty and Attack on Titan.
For the most part my taste in music is grounded in the rock / alternative genres. If it isn't country, rap or hip-hop I'll probably give it a listen! I care very much about a song's melody and flow, and have an strong affinity for irish songs. Oh, and sea shanties! I love sea shanties. My favorite bands include Flogging Molly, Santiano, The Offspring, Gaelic Storm, Queens of the Stone Age and Carbon Leaf.
I'm not a fussy eater, but texture matters a lot to me and there are some ingredients I positively detest (water chestnuts, yech). I'm very big on pasta and love italian food. I also thoroughly enjoy japanese, mexican and thai foods, and am willing to try just about anything different or culturally unique.
Since there isn't a category for it: Video games! I'm currently addicted to a combination of Overwatch and Ark. Other honorable mentions include Soma, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Garry's Mod (Prop Hunt!), and Portal 2. There's also a mountain of unplayed games in my library. They quietly guilt me for not giving them any attention, and whisper mean things to me at night.
When my next nap will be.
Did I already drink a cup of coffee this afternoon? I think I did. Maybe. I don't know. Better drink another, just in case.
Also, birds. Birds are cool.
