in books, i love those that cover the cross over of history and science. the why of things. some examples are "stiff", "salt", "the elegant universe", "chaos" and most anything by james gleick, "freakanomics", etc
Ive sunk into podcasts, the last couple months. some of the most prominent are startalk, ted radio hour, radio lab, 99% invisible, love and radio... a good amount of my time is spent working in my shop which gives me plenty of time to listen to anything and everything.
and in movies, i love those that get my blood pumping, laugh/cry. something that will take me by surprise
You're independent with your life. I love spending time with the person I'm dating, I love going for adventures, but I also love working late at the shop a couple nights a week. If you're looking for someone who comes home at 5 everyday were probably not going to work out.
