I like to exercise whether it is riding my bike by the lakefront, doing yoga and pilates, or lifting weights. I also like to listen to music, read books, and cook new recipes.
My favorite movie is probably still Mr. Nobody. It is all about the philosophical nature of choice and how choice creates the human desire for greater meaning. One of the takeaways from this movie is that “Every path is the right path. Everything could’ve been anything else and it would have had just as much meaning.” There are so many ways to analyze this movie and its themes, which I find particularly fascinating.
I would probably either travel somewhere I’ve never been, like South America or Australia, or I would return to Spain where I lived abroad for six months. Amazing culture, people, and food and one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.
My favorite movie is “The Empire Strikes Back,” but the best movie I have ever seen is “The Godfather, Part II.” Both movies are about turning to the dark side, but only “Empire” leaves open the possibility of redemption.
Spend time with my friends and family, whether it involves going hiking, snowboarding, on MKE brewery tours, hosting dinner or themed parties, taking pontoons on the Milwaukee river, or playing games such as Catan, etc.
It would be difficult to choose just one. My favorite genre is likely dystopian/utopian fiction. I think it is interesting to see authors drawing attention to real-world issues in society and detailing how those issues have the potential to play out.
I love a cup of Earl Grey tea with a splash of oatmilk. I also love coffee or espresso with oatmilk, honey and cinnamon.
You would find multiple playlists with various music, such as EDM, Rap/R&B, Punk/Emo Rock, and Reggae. Although it is tough to narrow down, a few of my favorite artists include Fred again…, GRiZ, Kid Cudi, and My Chemical Romance.
