I have a lot of interests—so I once overheard one friend say to another about me—and enjoy just about everything, including cultural events such as plays and concerts, as well as happy hours and sports events. I'm rather social and make friends easily.
About ten years ago I got into running and doing races, which has also led to triathlons and mountaineering. It's added a facet to my life that I really enjoy.
By the way, I wasn't always a lawyer: after undergrad I was a full-time waiter & bartender for five years, then spent two years as a social worker. It's been an interesting journey.
What I'm NOT doing with my life: watching TV.
Movies: all Woody Allen & Alfred Hitchcock, also Inception, Two Lovers, Spiderman 2, Bullets Over Broadway, Godfather I & II, Dumb & Dumber, Princess Bride, Empire Strikes Back, You've Got Mail, Evil Dead 2, Three O'Clock High, old film noir like Double Indemnity & Laura.
Shows: all Shakespeare, Tom Stoppard, and Neil Simon, also Avenue Q, Rock of Ages, The Abduction from the Seraglio, Candide, Spamalot, The Barber of Seville, Altar Boyz.
Music: at home I mostly listen to classical (unless I'm on my bike trainer, in which case I'm watching/listening to the latest hip-hop videos), but I also like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Snow Patrol, The Killers, Motley Crue, Amy Winehouse, Eminem, U2, Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Velvet Underground, 80s pop, 90s indie rock/alt, some jazz.
Food: I tend to eat healthy though that doesn't mean I'm a light eater by any stretch. I try to have a lot of carbs for breakfast and lunch and then have a moderate dinner. As far as ethnic foods go, I enjoy cuisines from Southeast Asia. Though I don't often have dessert (other than yogurt), a few years ago my pecan pie won a baking contest.
2. running shoes (right now I'm back to the Brooks Adrenaline series)
3. books, whether kindle or hardback
4. a comfy bed
5. facebook (I'm hopelessly addicted)
6. my composition book
Though I go without all of these things when I'm on a mountain, so I guess the only thing I really can't do without is a positive spirit.
