In the off hours, I like seeing different kinds of live music, exploring exotic cuisines around Manhattan and the other boroughs, meeting new people, and just really feeling energized by it all.
Various practical talents: I went to Boy Scout-type summer camps. I like to be capable and to master new challenges! I love languages, and have dabbled with or attained some proficiency in a few more than are listed here. I have an ear for music, can dance...
Volleyball, Basketball (not just for being tall :p), team sports in general to a degree
Music: good rhythms and harmonies. I like to sing, dance (RnB & a bit of ballroom), karaoke, Rock Band.
Books: a lot of nonfiction. World events/history, biography, social science, etc.
Movies: Inception--clever story, interesting casting, great fun overall. Shawshank Redemption--good triumph-over-adversity and friendship story.
Changes of scenery, exploring and people-watching
New things to learn
Hugs (some test said I am less loving than average--wrong!)
Chocolate chips and yogurt (I try to eat healthy, but I have my vices...)
Sunny days...help me out a little NYC!
Which traits I admire in others and how I can adopt them.
...I'm taking suggestions on what to put here
