I'm pretty ambitious, but not in a traditional way. I'm not interested in some high-flying career above the clouds. In my professional life I've met the jet-set, and that's where I finally learned the meaning of the word douchebag.
I am ambitious emotionally, intellectually. My projects are ambitious. I want to learn more, experience more.
In relationship I am passionate and intense. But I am not interested in that being anything more than fun. I have lived my fair share of heartbreaking, rending, ambivalent romances and I don't intend to have any more.
So far that is working out pretty good.
Paradoxically, both listening to people and pissing people off.
People often get a lot of weird first impressions of my character, depending on the situation, I come across as sensitive or gutsy or abrasive, none of which are entirely true.
For fiction, I like hard science-fiction and that genre of genres nook that is cyberpunk. I'm also a sucker for detective stories.
For nonfiction, I generally prefer history, analysis, and textbooks. The first time I picked up A People's History of the United States I literally could not put it down again until I had finished it 4 days later.
In music I am more into industrial / darkwave, trip-hop, and hip-hop end these days though I love a good bluegrass/folk/country show when I can get it.
For shows, I generally prefer smaller venues.
Food is across the board. I like well-prepared, well-presented food, of any stripe.
Movies and TV rarely make a lasting impression on me. I like to get out to see theatre when I can. I studied theatre and am a very difficult audience to please.
I like zombies, to an unreasonable extent, and just about anything with them in it is sure to captivate me.
Gender, sex, as acts, facts, and constructions.
Math, machines, and things you can do with numbers.
My relationships, my community, my friendships.
