The one thing I am passionate about...
I like so many things, but I am most passionate about stories, games, and visual art. Not exactly succinct, but come on, narrowing it down to three was tough! I love books, theater, film, video games, and so many other forms of expressing stories. There is nothing like a good story. You can learn a lot about and connect with people through stories.Games stimulate the tinkering and playful parts of my brain. Some games are like systems to explore and puzzles to solve. Others are for expressing creativity and friendship.Visual art just makes me happy. I'll leave it at that.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy spending time with my friends. We do things like going on trips, hiking, playing games, telling stories, exploring food and drink, making stuff, and just hanging out. It's fun to do and discover new things with friends.I spend a lot of time absorbing movies, video games, and books. I always have a lengthy todo list and am rarely bored. These activities range from rote relaxation, to appreciation and study, to life-shaping experiences. It's kinda geeky, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
