When I was 10, my dad bought a fancy (but unassembled) bbq grill. He asked me to get the pieces sorted and he'll help me put it together soon. 30 minutes later he came back to find me finishing the last step. It wasn't until a decade later that I realized I accidentally ruined a day of bonding.
I'm artistically challenged in everything but photography. I love how it sits at the nexus of art, physics, and software. Getting the right exposure is all math, getting the right framing is all art, and removing that weird spot is all software. Yet I still view it as cheating: the beauty was there without me - all I did was push a button or three. As to the art I enjoy consuming, it's all across the board. Music, paintings, theater - some favorites are Wicked, Book of Mormon, and Next To Normal.
I'm the type of person who will drop everything to help family or friends. Most recently, I've made countless trips to Babies R Us buying stuff for my sister and her (adorable!) newborn baby. Some stuff on those shopping lists pushed me far outside my comfort zone, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat. I'm really lucky to have an incredibly loving and giving family - I realize not everyone can be that lucky, but it's important to me to be with someone who wants to build that kind of family with me.
In a relationship, I'm easy going, supportive, and nurturing. One of the best parts of a great relationship is being introduced to something my girlfriend is passionate about, or both of us trying something new together. Ballroom dance lessons, anyone? I've never tried it, but I think it would be fun.
