"Am I a good person? Deep down, do I even really want to be a good person, or do I only want to seem like a good person so that people (including myself) will approve of me? Is there a difference? How do I ever actually know whether I’m bullshitting myself, morally speaking?"
"What is character but the determination of incident? What is incident but the illustration of character?"
No, but seriously, this section is the worst.
I miss Rob Ford.
I love to travel. I actually grew up moving around quite a bit, and that has left me with some wanderlust. I just got back from San Diego and Montreal; next up New Zealand.
Hiking/snowboarding as much as I can. My main beef with the Midwest is the lack of mountains. I find myself heading to Utah regularly for alpine sports (and of course to commune with the Mormons).
I love to read. As you can gather from my quotes, I do enjoy fiction, but lately I've been on a behavioral economics kick. Really enjoying the eBook lending program through the public library.
Expanding my cooking repertoire. I just butchered my first whole tenderloin (thanks Alton Brown!) and I'm excited to see what I comes next.
If I'm on the street: determined east-coast style walk
If I'm sitting at the bar: the odd looking glass my beer came in
Or maybe something about my physical appearance, what do I know?
Food: I spent the first 20 years of my life being picky; now I am making up for lost time. Also, SPICY SPICY SPICY! I think this covers it.
Podcasts(updated): Lexicon Valley, HDTGM, Code Switch, Lore, Mystery Show, Filmspotting, CBB (an old favorite back in the mix) (also other EarWolf stuff), The Bugle, Freakonomics...
You read The Oatmeal and wish it updated more often (praise Jibbers!).
You want to help me check more restaurants off my ever-growing list.
You have a dog that would be down for a new friend.
