I also love hiking. I did quite a bit of it in Oregon, and I hear there's a lot to explore in New York. If you want a hiking buddy to do some of the high peaks in the Adirondacks, I'm down.
I'm fairly close with my family in Seattle, and I plan on visiting them a lot.
Volunteering is and always has been a huge part of my life. For the past 3 years, that's been serving food in a restaurant for low income and unhoused people in Oregon. If you have any leads for places like that in Syracuse, I am very interested.
Books: Franny and Zooey and East of Eden are tied for my favorite. I also love David Sedaris
Shows: I don't watch a whole lot of TV, so when I do, I want to laugh. Favorites are It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, Freaks and Geeks, The Daily Show, Bob's Burgers, Love, and Workaholics
Movies: Anything that can make me laugh. Or cry. Those are good too
Food: Mexican is my favorite, but I'll eat pretty much anything
2. Easy access to nature
3. A good book in my backpack
4. A blackboard or white board (my job is literally composed of standing in front of one and pretending to know what I'm talking about)
5. A strong group of friends
6. Running trails
You like nerding out over pretty much anything. You like to joke around a lot, and you don't take yourself too seriously. If you like goofy dudes who can't keep a straight face.
As an aside, I generally like to meet people casually for coffee before we decide whether to go on a real date or not. I'm new in town and I need friends more than I need a relationship
