I'm a recent grad who just moved to Michigan. Life has changed a bit since I moved here from the city: I used to be very into checking out restaurants (I love ethnic food, and Indian is my favorite), watching movies (older and foreign films), and doing other cultural activities. I'm living the Midwestern life for now, keeping active by biking, tennis, racquetball, rock-climbing and the like. I love my chemical engineering job. For me, my work and my studies are a big part of my life.
I've become a bit more religious recently. My profile says Ba'al Teshuva, because I don't know how else to describe it. I'd say I'm philosophically Orthodox, working on becoming more observant. I'm up to keeping 90% of the kosher rules in my house, and eating kosher style outside. I'm in a weird phase where I'm more religious than those who aren't religious, but not as stringent as those who are religious, so whoever I meet needs to understand that I'll be changing over time.
