I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I'm really good at learning new things, but really bad at shaping my skills and knowledge into a career path. I'm hoping a fresh start in a new city will help me work that out.
Update: Well, it's been a year since I came here. Still not sure how I feel about Chicago. I work a lot, so I'm pretty sure I haven't experienced a lot of what makes it such a great city. I've met some wonderful people, though, and I'd love to meet more.
The remainder of my time is spent trying to figure out how to get one job that'll pay the same as my current two and, more importantly, trying to get out there and meet new people and try new things. :)
...trying to do things myself (if I can order a part on ebay and I've got a repair manual, I don't need a mechanic, right???). Sometimes I'm even successful! And I don't mind too much when I'm not. It's still always a learning experience.
...traveling by myself (although I'm a little afraid to go anywhere I don't speak the language--not that I'll let that stop me).
...walking quickly in high heels.
Movies: Sci-fi, MCU, indie, Woody Allen, random other stuff (on my computer right now you'll only find (500) Days of Summer and Filth, but I think the combination of the two of those pretty well sums up my tastes).
Shows: House, Bones, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Gossip Girl (shut up), The Daily Show
Btw, if you quote a book, tv show, movie, whatever, I probably won't get it, even if I've read or seen whatever several times. I just have a horrible memory for quotes. And names, I never remember names.
Music: Indie and/or British mostly, but (as everyone says) I like a bit of everything mostly. Except opera, I just can't get into it. I'm really odd about listening to specific music in different situations. My favorite band are Biffy Clyro, I like listening to Mogwai when I'm sad, or Sigur Ros when I need to feel better, or Beulah or Hey Mercedes or Damone when it's warm and sunny, or G!YBE or A Silver Mt. Zion or M83 when it's late and stormy....
Food: I really love Indian and Thai, and I'd like to branch out and try lots of other cultures' food.
Update: I'm drastically changing this after living in Chicago for a year.
New list: COFFEE (large black eye, please, preferably from Emerald City Coffee), sleep, personal space, DOGS, good people, my phone. Runners-up: Comfortable shoes, the ocean.
Also, it seems I'm going against popular opinion to say this here, but I really don't like cats. When they're around, I'll kind of try to play with them, but I just don't get them.
Also #2, I suck at riding a bicycle. This is not going to change any time soon, so I'm probably not the right person to join you on bike rides.
Or if you have a large dog I can hug. I am dead serious.
