I've also been a story teller my whole life. As a kid I wrote plays I forced my cousins to act out in and now as an adult I'm writing short stories, screenplays, and various other things to try to satisfy that itch.
I also just enjoy talking with people. I love a great discussion and/or debate. It can be about previously mentioned pop culture or things like politics or social change.
I try to be a conscious consumer of the media I watch. Which basically means I care deeply about how women, minorities, and alternative sexualities are represented in movies, television, comics, etc.
I am also excellent at laughing. No it's a skill okay, I am really good at it.
I'm told I'm also pretty good at analyzing media and literature critically. A friend is trying to get me to start up a blog to put up some of my essays and papers on it, it's a thing I'm considering.
It used to be my fun hair colors but job searching has made that a no go for a while

Almost three years later and I'm still angry about How I Met Your Mother's finale, it retroactively tainted the entire series for me so while I can't call it a favorite anymore I feel it should be mentioned as I don't know that any other series has had quite the same angering effect on me. So that's something.

e) I like most food, but I am a particular fan of Japanese, Mexican, and Italian food. I'll try just about anything once though.
Recently I've really gotten into the McElroy family of comedy and podcasts and it's made my life an infinitely better place. The Boy Mayor of Second Life episodes of Monster Factory are cinematic masterpieces and I refuse to hear otherwise.
2. is it cheating if I say media to lump music, books, television and movies all together
3. food. i love to eat.
4. makeup, I love it as a form of art and self expression I can practice every day
5. the internet
I also think a lot about what I'm going to do with my life when my graduate program is done. Will I work at a high school? A community college? A combination?
The answers to these questions change on a day to day basis.
I love going to live theater but don't do it as much as I'd like.
I also don't have a whole lot of dating experience which I know isn't something everyone wants to deal with. So I guess I should put it out there, save us both some trouble.
