My favorites: - figuring things out, id est, analyzing - history and math (together? Impossible, you say! You're probably right, but, nevertheless.) - paradoxes - concisity. neologisms.
The interests list below may seem contradictory, but that's only because I'm trying to figure things out. To do that, I need both sides. I lean toward the macabre one day and then suddenly realize my overflowing empathy for every single person I know. Or I love, and then the next day feel the urge to strangle the little puppy dog that sits in my lap.
