I enjoy many types of music, from classic rock to metal, some country, some jazz, a lot of blues, and some classical. I have started a collection of art books. I love to read books and to relax every once in a while. More recently I am working on getting back into better shape. Sadly that lapsed a little as I focused on getting into my career.
I tend to be an independant thinker. I firmly believe that far too many people just believe what they are told, and never question it! I have a firm enjoyment of learning, and I am constantly working on learning something new. I've self-taught myself a very basic understanding of several languages, and a little bit about metallurgy, in the last year. Really, it's whatever strikes my fancy on a given day!
I largely self-educated through public schooling (Seriously, too easy) and never went to an official college. I have some credits from training for jobs... and could probably finish a degree easily if I decided to do so. I just never really felt the need. It's more fun, and more effective, to just start looking up something and learn it!
I enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen is a ton of fun. Making something new, that may never have been made before is a thrill! I usually end up with a new dish at the end of experiments... but every now and then I just decide I had a bad idea. Some things just should not be made!!!
I also specialize in altering foods slightly to make them easier or more familiar. Examples include things like Gyro pizza and turning a cream cheese dip into a filling using Nilla Wafers to make sandwiches.
Often people notice that I act 'gentlemanly.' I do, after all, try to do things like hold doors for people and just offer little courtesies!
b. Anything with an interesting plot! I got tired long ago of watching the same old recycled gunk that comes out all too often. If there is a good comedy, action, or drama then I am glad to watch it.
c. I'm fairly open... but I refuse to listen to music that is focused on a message I have no interest in. For me, this tends to include songs that use insulting terms about people, talk only about $$, or are focused on activities that I would find offensive (like murder, drugs, etc.)
d. I like a variety. I have been trying to eat healthier, and so I have a lot of whole grains, fruits, and veggies. I'm currently hooked on a roast turkey and provolone sandwich with tomato, onion, lettuce, and cucumber... made it one day for fun and have been loving it since! When I spoil myself, I like things like Gyros, Chicken Milano, and 'Cream of Potato soup stuffed portabello' (another creation of mine.)
