My life consists of working at an elementary school on the North Shore, reviewing movies on the radio, organizing Meet-ups, filming weddings and learning what I can about the world around me.
I do have free time. Seriously, I do. Let's spend some of it together, shall we?
My profile says I "have cats." I have A cat. One cat. I'm not the male version of a cat lady.

Okay, but really (in no particular order)...
Movies (it's my passion and we all need one of those)
My job (I love it that much)
My friends and family (kind of a no-brainer)
Hopes and dreams (stagnant is boring)
Traveling (see "hopes and dreams")
A nearby city (I'd freak out if I lived in the middle of nowhere)
You really are serious about starting something new and aren't "set in your ways." That seems to be a tall order these days for people in my age group.
I'm not on the A-list, so if you "like" me, I'll have no idea and nothing will happen. And that's sad.
