Also, I'm political. Not refuses to ever listen to a different opinion political, but expects you to have a genuine interest in what's going on in the world political. Please don't be this person: http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/undecided-voter/1418227
Movies: A Beautiful Mind, No Country for Old Men, Inception, Les Bonnes Femmes (points if you actually have any idea what the last one is, I was only came across it by way of a med student with a passion for French New Wave Cinema and Joe Dassin).
Shows: Jon Stewart, Colbert, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Buffy. The rest I could live without. Add-on: Community!
Food: I don't always cook new recipes, but when I do, I end up getting sick of it and ordering a pizza instead. I'm also famous for butchering recipes, so if you were hoping for a partner in master chef-ery, you're out of luck :).
Friends to lean on and bitch to and who don't take themselves too seriously.
And family, of course.
-You belong to a community but have always felt a little bit outside of it.
