My favorite color is blue, I have two golden retrievers, live in the country, drive a Scion FR-S, prefer Cherry MX-Black keyboards, and my football team is the Seahawks.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile :)
Car racing is something I've always wanted to do, but I finally have the time and money to do so. I'm still at the bottom, taking lessons from instructors, but my plan is to get my racing license someday and race with a sponsor. I am so excited that that could happen one day!
I read voraciously, mostly science fiction and fantasy. I'm currently reading The Hollows series and about to finish. I have no idea (not even the faintest) what I'll read next. Mild anxiety over this.
I don't particularly watch movies, but my favorite at this point in time is probably Pulp Fiction or Django Unchained.
I don't watch a lot of television. My favorite shows from ages gone by include Top Gear, NCIS, CSI, Jeopardy, Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, and House. Grey's Anatomy was good too.
Music... I'm all over the board here. Right now my favorite genres are Electronic Trap and Pop. I'm always listening to music at work and I'm constantly finding new things that are interesting to me. I'm currently doing a deep dive in 90s music as a genre study.
I pretty much like every kind of food I've ever tried. I have yet to try sushi, but that's mostly due to an irrational fear of eating some sort of shellfish I turn out to be allergic to and dying. I've never been invited to sushi either, so that fear's held up for 12 years now.
As for what's particularly my favorites: American, Mexican, Korean, French, Italian, German, Mongolian, Chinese, Nepalese
Just no coconut. I despise coconut. And mint.
2. A four burner stove. That sounds a little petty, but have you ever tried to seriously cook on fewer burners? I got by on one or two for a while, and I have sworn an oath to myself that I will never go back. Heck, I might even make six burners stoves a new mandatory in my life.
3. Fitbit / fitness tracker. Without my Fitbit, I would know so much less about how active I am, how much I can eat today, how I'm sleeping etc. I can be a bit of a data junky, and the more metrics I capture about myself the more fascinating all the data in context becomes.
4. My family. They made me who I am and I love them. They're the people who accept me for the reason of being related to them. It doesn't matter who I am or what I'm doing, they are there for me. How could I live without that kind of support?
5. Refrigeration / Ice boxes - Food preservation. I cannot fathom how I would manage to function if I couldn't keep raw meat around for a few days, let alone freeze something. This modern convenience is a fundamental life-changer and I'm not really willing to live without it.
6. Someplace to escape to. You know, that place to go to when everything in life is falling apart or when everything in life is going right. Private, secluded with whatever ambiance my mood requires.
PS - I thought about adding some snarky things like carbon or oxygen, but that doesn't distinguish me much from anyone else, does it?
There were former slaves alive in the 1920s. Wow.
