I am also a late-20's adult who is enthralled with the idea of altruism and is ecstatic that I get to live it out in my career. Helping others is where I derive meaning and purpose for my own existence.
I enjoy the simple pleasures in life, primarily in the form of the company of my friends and family. Furthermore, if I am free and have the funds, I am always down for a road trip. Oh...and Duck Football...it's my religion (August-January).
Outside of that, I am currently milling my way towards purchasing a home and trying to find destinations to travel to, as well as the time off and funds to make it happen.
Love Actually, Top Gun, Gladiator, Die Hard, Beauty and the Beast, Forrest Gump
Band of Brothers, The Pacific, 24, Glee, anything on the Discovery Channel
Anything, so long as I like it and, more importantly, can understand it.
"Oh, the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss, "On the Origins of Species" by Charles Darwin, "Citizen Soldier" by Stephen Ambrose, "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch, and "The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks.
I'm up for anything EXCEPT fish/seafood.
