A good day is a mixture of two things; Go to lab and work my ass off. Then hopefully I'll get some data worth looking at later. And relaxing with a beer or a cup of coffee to watch Doctor Who, Futurama, or playing a video game or reading
A great day would basically be one of 3 things: Going to a rugby match and leaving all of the week's worries on the pitch. Followed by celebrating the day (win or lose) with a group of good guys and some nice brews. Finding a nice cafe and just sit there as I enjoy a good cup of coffee and a good book and just take it all in, hopefully with some friends. Going out group of friends and finding new and interesting people where ever we go.
I love being social and hosting things like dinner parties and in my college days more exciting, apartment trashing parties as well but now I think I am going to opt to keep those at the bar. I like to chill, read, play video games, watch movies, play any sport (except cricket...I just don't know the damn rules). I am honestly quite nerdy and my sense of humor can range from archer to sponge bob and most things in between.
Shows: Castle, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Modern Family, Daily Show, Colbert Report, most BBC shows, Wings, etc
Books: Catch 22, Heart of Darkness, Persepolis, Watchmen, anything Shakespeare, anything Tennessee Williams, J.R. Tolkien, Emerson, Langston Hughs, World War Z, and loads more. For some reason I couldn't think of the silly books I enjoy.
Music: everything but folk and country not as much
something good to read
I usually think out loud when I make plans or need to think about what needs to be done for class or around the apartment so sometimes it just looks like I am bat shit insane when I am walking down the street. The wild hand motion that is typical in Costa Rican conversations doesn't help much with that either.
If you want to chill.
Or you are bored.
