I keep a pretty close group of friends but I also really like to meet new people, which is sort of why I'm trying this thing out. I can be a bit shy or quiet the first time I meet someone. But I get over that quickly and open right up like I knew who ever it is my whole life. There isn't all that much of a middle ground. I'm in graduate school on a new side of the country and haven't had too many opportunities to meet people outside of my program so hopefully you'll say "hi."
Movies: A little less explanation needed here. Some of my favorite movies are Boondock Saints, Dogma, Muppet Treasure Island, Star Wars, and the Resident Evil movies were pretty entertaining. I love horror as a genre overall especially some of the older 'even the music is scary' ones. And as paradoxical as it may sound I love really bad movies like the ones they play at the Lyric Cinema Cafe for "Bad Movie Nite".
Shows: Netflix is basically a gift from the heavens and I've gotten to watch or re-watch most of my favorites from there. Shows like Psych, Warehouse 13, How I Met Your Mother (I've only seen what's on Netflix), Bones, Sherlock, and Doctor Who (only the more recent episodes). And I'm finally starting to get into Breaking Bad which as a chemist, I'm sad I haven't already done. I also love the Big Bang Theory and Community for shows that aren't instantly available on Netflix.
Music: I just love how much energy listening to SKA music gives me. Some of the best bands I've seen play have been Reel Big Fish, Streetlight Manifesto, Suburban Legends, and The Aquabats. I could probably listen to just about any music if I got to see it played live and I love checking out local bands that I haven't seen before. And I also love getting nostalgic and listening to some of those 90s bands like Smash Mouth, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Weezer, and Cake.
Food: I'm mostly vegetarian so I no longer eat the chickens, cows, and pigs of the world. I have found cutting fish and seafood out of my diet much more difficult because sushi is so delicious. But I will eat and love almost any type of food as long as it's not super, super spicy.
