"Whatever you do in life, be drunk with it"
Actually my dad gives lots of advice, but that's what I listened to the most.
I have what many consider a somewhat dorky sense of humor. Given to random online pokes, and dancing, to in person just coming up with the most random things to say for a laugh. I try to enjoy life with a smile, a laugh, and a sense of wonder. Prefer sensuality to sexuality (there is something to be said for subtly).
Apparently I'm an INFJ, or INFP depending on the test.
Not native to NYC, but slowly figuring it out. Still used to there being far more trees than people though.
Appreciating irony more and more every day
I graduated from a BU affiliated college with a certificate in digital photography. One day, perhaps, I will have a studio, and will be paid enormous sums of money (yeah...right)to take pictures for people, but in reality, I have little interest in that right now. I just want to take pictures, to show people how I see the world, for better or worse.
The start of a few portfolios are here: http://www.iangoldenphotography.com
Cooking good food in a very tiny kitchen.
Making mechanical things work.
Same with movies, though I do enjoy some of the "classic" comedies (anything along the lines of Mel Brooks)
Recently caught "Trollhunter" on Netflix. I'm not a fan of the 'found-footage' style of movie, but I really found this one enjoyable.
Music: I'm usually listening to Tool, or Evanescence (not so much, since I started listening to Nightwish, Therion, and Lacuna Coil)
. Though my collection is somewhat small, I do have a fair variety of things, it's just that those are what I tend to start with. Oh, for the record, the rare and "unreleased" Evanescence is so much better than what they've come out with of late.
All in all, I enjoy listing to artists who have a genuine passion for their subject. I think Pink Floyd's "The Wall' is one of the best albums I've ever heard, and Alice in Chain's 'Dirt' album is so powerful to me, I often have to shut it off, or be somewhat overwhelmed. I have little musical talent of my own (ample proof given by my hardly ever played electric bass), but I enjoy discussing the meanings and emotions behind some artists works, and music is one form of that art, that I feel many can relate to.
A friend turned me onto Nightwish, recently, and the "End of an Era" album has been delightful
Harry Chapin: "A celebrity who cared, before it was 'cool' to care" Songs about life, not the glamor of fame.
Grew up listening to Harry Chapin, as my parents drove us down the road in an old motor home.
Food: I've discovered a love for sushi (in moderation), though I won't try octopus or sea urchin. Food is one of my passions, and I enjoy trying things, especially when I get to make them myself. There is a little 'hole-in-the-wall' grocery store near my job that does a very good, very simply, and very cheap, pork, beans and rice.
2. My family
6. A sense of history (If you don't know where you've been, how can you know where you're going?)
Honestly, I enjoy thinking in general. Self reflection, asking myself why something happened, and working my way to the root cause of a situation.
What if Schrodinger's cat was possibly a zombie?
Anyone wanna help me out with that equation?
Wow those numbers become unmanageable in a hurry.
I spend a lot of time in my head, thinking. I've been called out on this, as someone commented that I really just seem enjoy the thought process. I fully agree with them.
(I have met someone on here, and we are very happy, but I really enjoy conversing with people, making new friends)
I'm always looking for new interesting people to talk to, learn new things from, teach new things to. You know, interact socially, on an intellectual level.
You know the difference between living and existing, and are interested in the former, even if currently stuck only doing the latter.
You have a passion for something in your life, or are looking for that passion.
You are confident, but not arrogant in who you are, even if you don't know who that is (life is a journey of self discovery learning more about ourselves every day).
