I like doing things that better myself, learning and gaining experience and the like.
Thus reading (about a wide variety of topics: geopolitics, history, geography, anatomy, philosphy, music theory, social critique, on and on), meditating, being outdoors (biking, hiking, skiing (on my old farm ) walking, etc) if I don't go outdoors at least once or twice a day I feel like I'm trapped and get really depressed. I love the sun, and working with my hands. I love stonemasonry, blacksmithing, although I rarely get to do these things. I was an apprentice for a year to a stonemason, awesome times (until I injured myself) I love working on family projects like chimneys or bathrooms or what have you.
I love listening to all kinds of music, I listen to a lot of classical and also a lot of the rock and metal based genres. I love getting deep into any particular piece, multiple listening, until I now every bar by heart, that's when things get really awesome when you are in the right mood.
I used to get high 3 or 4 times a day, but I hope to quit that now, I'm in a manic state right now and am discovering (as I have in the past) that I can truly get high on life!!
Erm, I also like writing a lot. I used to write fictional stories a lot when I was younger, the past few years I have been writing "My Meditations" which is a place I put my deep thoughts in whenever I get them. So far it's several hundred pages long and covers time from 2004. I also write opinion based journalism on things that interest me. If I don't write in a day I feel I haven't done anything worthwhile to improve myself. Because communicating with other people is so important to me and as of yet writing my feelings down has been the most efficient way of doing it. Ask people that just meet me, I'm so silent. People that know me very well who I've been able to open up to will tell you I don't do chit chat very well. Must bring it to a deeper level, so that I feel that something worthwhile has been exchanged. I crave mutual understanding...
Right now I spend a lot of time trying to get over one particular WatchTower MindF*** which is that people are evil. Today I was lost when I re-entered the city from the Niagara River Recreation Trail, I stopped and asked a really attractive young lady directions to where I was trying to go, and she was very accomadating and not evil or mean at all, even though the witnesses would have said she was an evil prostitute because of the way she was dressed. She was very nice and it made me happy. It gives me hope that I can find someone to open up to and start a relationship.
I spend a lot of time trying to be myself. I'm just discovering what myself is. It's different when you aren't being told how to think and who you are "supposed" to be, I.e. Put on the NEw PERSONALITY AHAHAHAHA.
Mahler's Sixth Symphony, good god!
