When I was 6, I wanted to play with my cousins who lived next door, but they had colored with crayon all over the walls. I spent three hours cleaning their mess so I could play with them sooner!
When I was in 4th grade, we were working on a project and supposed to put the final result in a basket. But the teacher got angry with everyone standing up, so she said that the next person to stand up would get detention. I turned to my friend and asked him to put my project in the basket for me, since he was closer; the teacher heard, and gave me detention for being a "smart-ass".
When I was in 10th grade, I broke my ankle playing some soccer/football/handball combination game. I kept playing for the rest of the period because I was the best person on my team, and didn't want to lose.
When I was a sophomore in college, I went on a hike in upstate NY with some friends. We got lost, and ended up walking 23 miles that day. Fortunately, we brought lunch.
Well, that's enough for now. Maybe more to come in the future!
I also intend to travel a lot. I've been to Hawaii, Alaska, Peru, Ecuador, Galapagos Islands, Israel, Poland, France, Spain, Poland, Austria, Italy, London, and Ireland. I need to make it to the Far East and "down under" sometime soon.
Attention to detail
Finally finished Game of Thrones!
In the past, I've liked almost anything science-fiction or fantasy. I also like the occasional philosophical book, but it is very tough to find good ones. I am ready to explore new genres, but I'm generally plot-focused and so long, flowery descriptions irk me. Harry Potter, Perloo, Da Vinci Code, Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy, His Dark Materials - anything along those lines.
Most recently saw the Wolf of Wall Street and American Hustle. Sometimes I worry that I'm missing out on the less popular films.
Dexter, Nikita, HIMYM, Family Guy, House
Quite non-specific here. The only thing I know for sure that I don't like is rap or (most) country. I will listen to just about anything else.
Chocolate, steak, pecan-crusted chicken salad!
2) Puns. I love finding puns that people didn't intend, and sometimes making one or two myself.
3) Competition. Obviously there can be too much, but trying to outrun or keep up with other runners is half of my motivation.
4) Dessert. I guess I could do without this one, but really, who would want to?
5) Humans. Though the first few weeks might be nice, I'd soon start to doubt my sanity.
6) You. Because I can be corny and that's the corniest answer.
... why do parents torture their children with terrible names?
... should I travel to Japan, Korea, or China next?
... is there anything in the Midwest worth seeing?
... why haven't NYC subways been automated yet?
... do any sites sell shoes for the millions of people with different-sized feet?
... why is it the convention for guys to ask girls out?
b) Playing board games
c) At the gym
d) Traveling to far-off lands (like DC)
You used to think everything was black and white, but now you're not so sure.
You can arrange 8 queens on a chessboard such that no two queens share a row, column, or diagonal.
