I like to keep pretty active, but am not one to spend a lot of time in a gym. I try to walk as often as possible within the city and enjoying hiking. I love a good yoga class and have dabbled with Muay Thai, spinning and cardio bootcamp classes as well.
I am a wannabe writer, an avid daydreamer and someone who prefers to see the brightside of life. I am a frequent concert goer- there is nothing I enjoy more than live music (especially of the ourdoor summer concert variety). I also enjoy live theatre. I like to surround myself with creative, expressive people.
I like getting out of the city to enjoy some nature whenever I can- I am lucky to have a few family members and close friends with cottages I can escape to.
I love to learn and study, if university wasn't so expensive I would have been a life long student. So far in 2013 I have done a Intro to German night class and a creative fiction writing workshop.
As for my taste in movies- I would pick a good, quirky indie flick over a blockbuster, action movie. That being said I have many "guitly pleasure" movies too. Some of my all time fav films include Kill Bill, American History X, Pan's Labrynth, Dirty Dancing, Forrest Gump, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Bambi, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, Pirate Radio, Blue Valentine, The Matrix, The Princess Bride, A Clockwork Orange and Empire Records.
I follow Mad Men and Breaking Bad devoutly. I love to laugh so I watch Saturday Night Live, South Park, Robot Chicken and The Soup when I can. I have been watching marathons of The Wonder Years on Netflix lately and rediscovering a childhood favourite in a new light! Also- if I am bored and channel surfing there is a good chance I will watch anything on TeleToon Retro or the Discovery Channel.
Not long after I learned to walk and talk I discovered my dad's collection of albums which included The Beatles, Stones, CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zepplin, Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac to name a few. I will always love classic rock. Today a random scan of my iPod will pull up anything from Deadmau5, Kanye West, Daft Punk, Motown hits, Pearl Jam, Frank Sinatra to Nat King Cole, Adele, Queens of the Stone Age, Lauryn Hill, The Black Keys, RHCP and everything in between.
Bonus points for those of you who can play a musical instrument. I envy and admire you and wish I was so inclined to learn:-)
