psychology, sociology, Middle Eastern and Indian culture, Buddhism, theology, philosophy, baking, I love to cook but usually suck at it, all things tofutti, traveling, walking slowly/aimlessly and annoying people in the process, getting lost, attempting to play guitar and sing and usually sucking at both, writing, reading, art, music of all types - good and bad (and I don't care if you think the stuff I like sucks,) nonviolence, awesome people, being appreciative and taking nothing for granted, finding the good in people/situations, ego stroking (seriously - if you ever need an ego boost, just spend a week with me), being myself, being insane, no limit hold'em, smurfs, rubber ducks, snowcones, walking in the rain, playing in the snow, building snowmen, attempting to snowboard and nearly killing myself every time, night swimming, scambaiting, talking to random strangers, acting like an idiot, babbling incoherently, being overly polite, apologizing needlessly and excessively, people watching, fireworks, doing the goofy stuff I enjoyed as a kid, giving people something to laugh at, rocking at life and sucking at life simultaneously, staying up until dawn and sleeping until dusk, staying in pajamas all day, spending far too much time on the interweb, being a dork, being "weird - but in a good way," making an ass of myself, obsessing over trivialities and nonsense, and wasting money on crap I don't need.

As far as concerts go, I'm completely spoiled. It's a rarity to find me anyone other than in a suite or the first 3 rows. I figure I might as well do it right while I still can!
