I am eclectic, smart, and loyal
Leisure: I enjoy learning foreign languages--Spanish in high school, German in college; and Mandarin from a (now closed) local company. I might try to learn a bit of Russian (sooo many of my co-workers speak it; it'd be nice to have a clue as to what they're saying).
I have two standing weekly game nights with friends--boardgames and RPGs. I also do some programming (mainly to scratch a creative itch and to keep my skills up-to-date). I've enjoyed cooking but cooking for one has become less enjoyable--the prep work is about the same and you still end up eating the same thing for a few days in a row or throwing it out.
I've also been trying to get into a gym routine, going about 2-3 times a week. But I'm not really looking for a gym partner; I have a few defined plans that I try to power through after work or on the weekends and I'm not keen on trying to sync schedules.
Also, over using parentheses.
Music: Right now I'm on a bit of a Japanese rock kick--the pillows, HIGH and MIGHT COLOR, and ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION right now (and Pandora uncovered Ellegarden). Cake is always good for a listen. I wish The Postal Service would release a second album. I'm a fan of trip-hop like Portishead and Massive Attack and of older Everclear (Sparkle and Fade and prior) and Blink-182.
Movies: I'm not a big fan of going out to the movies (>
Food: I love love love eastern Mediterranean food (e.g., hummus, falafel, shawarma, etc.) . Sushi and ramen are always good. Also Punjabi (I think) stuff. Hell, most things except organ meat (offal, tripe, etc.).
Something nice to drink (alcoholic or not--nice tea, tasty water)
Something to learn from (book, internet, etc.)
Mountains nearby (I grew up surrounded by them; they seem to help me feel grounded. I don't think I'd do well in the Midwest.)
plus three more to be determined at a later date.
