I've made a lot of changes recently. I'm working really hard to develop new routines and new habits. I'm successfully eating healthier, eating less, and exercising regularly. It's something that I think about a lot lately.
I'm can't really capture myself in a few short paragraphs... But there are a few strong themes. I'm a father. I'm divorced. I'm a geek and a gamer. But don't try to reduce me to a label... life is so much more complicated than that :)
One of my favorite quotes about relationships is from an important scene near the end of High Fidelity. It captures the idea that an idealized relationship can never compare to real life. Enjoying life to fullest isn't about lamenting for an ideal relationship that doesn't exist, it's about being with the people in your life right here and right now. It's about two people walking down the same road and leaning on each other when there are bumps in the road.
I'm also a very good listener. Coming from the world of psychology, I understand how important it is to vent. I am surprisingly good at being patient with my kids. In fact, I'm usually pretty good at making kids smile.
Most of the movies that catch and hold my attention are in the fantasy and sci-fi genres. I definitely enjoy action thrill rides and most comedy movies.
My Netflix queue varies quite a bit. I tend to watch drama/thrillers. I'm waiting for new episodes of Game of Thrones and Walking Dead to be available somewhere besides cable.
Musical tastes really vary, but I listen to rock, techno and ambient music the most. Lately I've been listening to a lot of dubstep.
