I wonder if that's enough...
Weight lifting/Exercise is an activity I'm passionate about. I love feeling my body getting stronger, But I'm not just another meathead. I was a dork long before I was weightlifting
One of my favorite things is to go out and do anything new and fun. Especially anything outdoors. New and fun things really gets me excited. Travel is another huge part of my life. Getting out and seeing new places is so refreshing.
I rarely turn down an invitation to go some place I've never been, or to do something I've never done. If exercise keeps the body young; then it's new experiences that keep the soul young.
I'm always trying to find something new to do. I really enjoy yoga and meditation classes, I go to those anywhere I can find them. I go hiking and exploring to as many of the parks in Missouri and Arkansas that I can.
Honestly though, a lot of my free time is spent alone at a restaurant with a meal getting cold in front of me, and a book in my hand.
I'm looking for new friends to go on coffee dates with, text buddies, or just someone to hang out, doing stuff with. I would love to find someone that considers a few hours at the gym a date. I'm genuinely interested in meeting people to see if we hit it off enough to hangout more.
Every minute, I'm reminded, I survived the last minute. I don't want to wait. I want to live! Not now, but, right now.
I'm a total foodie, I love it when I taste a new flavor that I've never had before. I will talk about food and flavor... a lot
All though I love food and eating, I am a moderate eater. I don't diet but I am in control of what I eat. Health and Fitness is a priority for me (but who can resist Andys Frozen Custard once and a while)
I love laughing, and meeting, chatting with new people, I welcome conversations, new perspectives, and fresh ideas
I love cheap dirty tacos.
I used to read more fiction, but these days there's a list of non fiction books Im trying to get thru (not counting tech books about data networking)

Musically I let my activities dictate more than anything else; when I'm working out it's all metal and hardcore rap (Hammerfall, Pantera, DMX) when I'm at home its either pop/dance stuff (Nelly Furtado, Pink, Kelly Clarkson), latin club music (Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Shakira) or R&B/soul music (Tina Turner, James Brown, Al Green, Sade, Nina Simone) I also love 80's Synth (Perturbator, Garth Knight, Miami Nights) But I like everything generally, except pop country
The Wizard of Oz and Lawrence of Arabia are tied for my greatest movies of all time.
On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Wild One (Brando's finest) are all number two on the list

How shallow everything around me seems.
Seriously; if the extent of your interests are alcohol, television, eating garbage, filling your house and your life with stuff, we will never get along. If you don't support, radically support, LGBT, we will never get along.

I live on fruit and vegetable party trays and, baked chicken from the deli counter
I was on /b/ a long time before you were
Im never sure if what I write translates to the way it sounds in my head and I hate that
You can explain this to me: All the influences of the world are entering you only through the instrument of the mind. If you can rise beyond the influence of your mind in full awareness, then you are naturally one with everything. The separation – you and me, time and space – has come only because of the mind. It is a bondage of the mind. If you drop the mind, you have dropped time and space. There is no such thing as this and that. There is no such thing as here and there. There is no such thing as now and then. Everything is here and now.
