I'm a really out-going person and I can turn the most mundane situations into something fun - if I have to be doing it, I'm going to have fun, damn it! I'd rather go out then stay at home... most of the time.
I enjoy hiking, a day at the beach, running, watching movies (old, new, whatever, I just love movies). Exploring new places and trying new things. The outdoors - camping, skiing, canoeing/kayaking, rafting. I recently got into video games (bought my first Xbox!) I'm really, really terrible but I don't give up easily so I'll beat Red Dead Redemption eventually.
I'm also pessimistically optimistic about life.
Running - did the LA Marathon and would like to do it again. But, a Triathlon is going to be in my future. I think.
Volunteering - just started my 3rd year doing after school tutoring for a local non-profit. I'm almost 30 and I still can't do sixth grade math. The kids are learning so much from me.
Being extremely witty and sarcastic. And rolling my eyes. And making fun of you. If I don't make fun of you, it means I don't like you - it's how I show affection.

Also, why has Dunkin' Donuts not ventured farther west. This is a seriously missed opportunity. And I want my damn Dunkin' Donuts coffee. UPDATE: DD arrives in LA sometime 2015. I'll never need to move home now.
But, if I have the night off, I'm with friends - either catch a movie or hit up a bar. Someplace with live music is cool. Or, whatever people have in mind. I'm open.
Looking for new friends!
