I love all things sports (especially baseball), music, movies, any sort of board, video, card games, running, peanut butter, and have a deep-seated hatred of word misappropriations (I'm looking at you, people who actually write pre-Madonna).
My line of work also requires good listening skills, and it's something that's become of great use in my life, especially for someone who enjoys helping others. You'd be shocked how many problems you can solve by just listening to someone and offering advice from a different perspective.
I've always been good at solving conflict and knowing when someone's mood is different from normal. I hate lingering conflict, so I have often been called in to act as a peacemaker when situations spiral out of control.
Man, I need to get back on the wagon. I read daily, but much of my reading has shifted from books to magazines and websites. There's so much good content everywhere, it's hard not to get overwhelmed at the volume of options. I love websites like Salon, Slate, Gawker among on a daily basis.
Some favorite books of mine in the past have been Slaughterhouse Five, Breakfast of Champions, And Then There Were None, Moneyball, The Corrections, Holes, Super Sad True Love Story
Almost anything David Fincher. Zodiac, The Social Network, Fight Club, and Se7en stand out for me. Some other favorites: The Incredibles, The Sixth Sense, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Iron Giant, Drive, and The Usual Suspects.
Breaking Bad, True Detective, House of Cards, Top of the Lake, Justified, Rangers games.
The Strokes, Chromatics, Outkast, Mos Def, Blackalicous, Sleigh Bells, DeerPeople, RJD2, Kavinsky, The Black Keys, The Beatles, Weezer (Blue Album & Pinkerton), and any sort of classic rock. I'll listen to anything really, with the exception of country music. I know, I'm a horrible Texan.
There's a bunch more I listen to, but I'm pretty sure you'd rather do something else than read what music a complete stranger is in to. I'm pretty sure you'd rather do something else than read what music a complete stranger is in to.
My iPhone (how original)
But to truly answer the question, I think probably too much about baseball.
