Got my degree a couple of years back, and up until recently I wound up working in fields with only the most tenuous connection to it. I would love to go back to school but it has to make sense financially. I also fear I'd get sucked headlong into academia and be one of those Post-Doc 43 year olds. As corny as it sounds, learning is one of my most-loved ways to pass the time.
I am straightforward and reliable, older than most of my friends by two years and that has made a bigger difference than I would have ever thought. I am not above embarrassing the hell out of myself to delight those I am with.
Not to sound too cloying, mind you. The place I work is high intensity and some shit goes DOWN. I usually win at telling work stories at parties, if shocked silence and people saying "oh my God..." under their breath counts as a win.
I enjoy Cirque du Soleil, and most not very serious movies and some of the more serious ones. I have a massive and unashamed love for the older Disney movies, and if prompted enough WILL sing some of the songs. I might even try to do the voices if asked nicely enough. Finding more and more that I really like the Marvel cinematic Universe. I just am fascinated with how they successfully interconnect so much.
I am open musically to whatever sounds good at the moment, though I seem drawn to non vocal tracks or stuff in other languages. I have this nasty habit of listening to lyrics and then realizing they are really dumb. This tends to kill my enjoyment of country music, for example.
Food is good. Good food is better. Lousy food is TERRIBLE. I once decided to give vegetarianism a go, and not for a reason that many might think. It did not work out. Iron deficiency is a thing.
I just realized that when they say shows they meant TV. I rarely watch TV so I kinda missed the point there. Ha! That being said, I have several shows on DVD, like Battlestar Galatica and Dead Like Me that I happen to think are marvelous. Currently, I like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as it represents crossovers between films and TV, which I always wondered why nobody bothered with as a kid.
3. My car. Used to ride the bus. Looking back I am shocked I survived.
5. Cell phone.
6. My hands (I am attached to them).
...when reduced to a quick blurb my job comes off as creepy.
