I love people, and really enjoy learning all I can from everyone I meet. I am a huge fan of music--I have somewhere over a thousand CDs (remember CDs?) and several hundred vinyl albums, plus a boatload (that's the official term) of digital music. I also enjoy writing, reading, museums, exploring new areas, video games, and spending time with friends and family. I also love the Orioles and watch every game I can.
I'm finally implementing a long in the making fitness plan, getting to the gym 4-5 days a week. Would love to do more with other people, as well.
I'm a positivist by nature--I always try to look for the best in people, and I believe that people are generally good, and will head towards positive growth when given the right circumstances and opportunities.
Ideally, I'd like to find someone to settle down with, although I know that takes time. So ultimately I am looking for something long-term, but friends are always welcome.
--Cheering people up and making people laugh
--Starting sentences with "There was a study that found…"
TV: Mostly I just watch Orioles games, but I am also a big fan of Conan O'Brien. I don't actually have cable, but I watch shows on Netflix. I'm a sucker for anything superhero related (Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Gotham, etc.)
Movies: Anything directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, The Batman Trilogy with Christian Bale, other superhero movies
Music: Some favorite artists at the moment are Greg Laswell, Yoko Ono, Tiger Army, John Lennon, Alkaline Trio, Against Me!, Public Enemy, Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room, Nellie McKay, Passenger, Morrissey, Blondie, Ani DiFranco, Sam Phillips, Derek Webb, Tom Petty, Aimee Mann, Anti-Flag, David Ramirez, The National, Dr. Dog, The Falls, etc.
If it's melancholy singer-songwriter music, I'm probably gonna love it.
--Family & Friends (I'm combining them so I get one more thing)
--Paper and Pen (Again combining--I'm tricky like that)
--How I can help make the world a little bit better
--When I was a kid I created a super hero team consisting of Corny Man, Hot Dog Man, and Corn Cob. I'm not even joking.
