I watch a lot of documentaries (mostly nature channel stuff). Bear Sanctuary brought a huge smile to my face. Watching bears who had been held in undesirable conditions actually have a place to roam was very satisfying.
After many years, I finally decided to have a marathon of the Doctor Who series. I had some time off, so I watched the last six seasons in a week. I'm waiting for the latest season to come out on Hulu, since I missed the first half.
Perhaps I will actually play some of my video games that I have yet to complete because I've felt a bit claustrophobic in an apartment.
I've finally gone to Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. I had a blast. I took my brother and his family. The otters were cool, but I think I was most in awe watching the "amazon giants".
I've also been working on making a disc golf target for my family to use on outings. I'll keep you posted on that, but it's almost done.
I used to manage FedEx Office stores in Utah, but I finally decided I didn't want to be in retail the rest of my life. After saving up enough money, I left with a desire to finish my Computer Science degree. I recently graduated from Weber State University with honors.
I also have a lot of useless knowledge running around my brain. So, if you like random facts... you'll love me.
I'm also very considerate... I open the door for everyone (no, not just females). Actually, it really annoys me when females tell me that I'm being sexist by opening the door for them. It has happened many times, but I open the door for everyone... sorry, get over it.
Favorite book: A Brave New World.
Movies: Lord of the Rings trilogy, Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man, The Avengers, Schindler's List, Resident Evil, Silent Hill...
Broadway: I do like some broadway shows.
TV: I watch a lot of nature shows. I also watch Supernatural, Undercover Boss, Once Upon a Time, Falling Skies, Castle, Game of Thrones...
Music: I've been to: Tool, Sting, A Perfect Circle, Tenacious D, Depeche Mode, Collective Soul, Gin Blossoms, Pearl Jam, Queensryche, Harry Connick Jr, NIN, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, The Cure, Jack Johnson, Prince, Puscifer, Linkin Park, Stone Temple Pilots, Incubus... and more.
Food: I've been on a pasta kick lately. I love making chicken fettucine alfredo. However, it takes me about two hours to make.
1. People - they keep me going.
2. Watching children - not in the creepy way, but sometimes I regret not having any of my own.
3. My nieces/nephews - I have 13 of them now ranging from 2-26. I just hope I can be a decent influence on them.
4. Internet - makes it easier to research and learn.
5. Laughter - I always feel better after laughing regardless of the situation.
6. Tomorrow - you never know what it will bring.
I often wonder how people can't just sit back and appreciate the things around them. Perhaps I just enjoy more of the simple things in life. A small circular platform can display an amazing video. Or one day, a plant looks very healthy and the next day it's sprouting a gorgeous bloom and dying. It may seem trivial to most, but even the trivial things never cease to amaze me.
