I've been through a few careers: was a child development specialist, trained as a high altitude mountaineer, returned to education as an English teacher/learning specialist, am now a tutor and consultant. Mountaineering and rock climbing have been replaced by cycling.
I never married or had children, but rather enjoyed and still enjoy an independent life with a certain degree of solitude for reflection and balance. You could say I am a blend between an introvert who reads, thinks, meditates, and putters, and an extravert who enjoys conversation, listening, physical activity, and, of course, humor.
For books: Huck Finn, Great Gatsby, Things They Carried, Out Stealing Horses, Remains of the Day, etc.
For historians: Gordon Wood, David Potter, Bruce Chernow
Film: The Lives of Others; Out of Africa; To Kill a Mockingbird; watching Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly dance.
Food: everything except beets, lima beans, and liver, but mostly vegetarian. I never pass up excellent food.
Exercise (cycling, hiking, yoga, walking, climbing, whatever)
