Real people, with real hearts. I can spot sincerity in people a mile away. Whether it's in their music, or videos, or a conversation. It just touches you, and you know it's genuine. It doesn't take long to spot a fake.
Languages, culture, new ideas, environmentalism, music. I do enjoy cooking and at one time reading used to be an overriding passion. It still is, the only difference being that I get time to read only textbooks.
