If you watched any cartoons in the 1990’s you are probably familiar with the animated series “Hey Arnold!” and the fictional character Eugene. Those who know me may accurately compare some of our characteristics. Like Eugene, I am an accident-prone nerd who tries to find the optimistic side of my general misfortunes.
I listen to a variety of music depending on my situation and mood. Some of my favorite artists are Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Ben Harper, Lindsey Stirling, Coldplay, Jimmy Eat World, Incubus, and others. I use Google All Access, Pandora Radio, and Spotify.
When I find time, I enjoy watching movies. Some of my favorite movies are October Sky, The Matrix, The Dark Night, School of Rock, Enemy of the State, Napoleon Dynamite, and Home Alone. I enjoy watching documentaries on Netflix. I also watch The Big Bang Theory, Impractical Jokers, Shark Tank, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
I mostly read non-fiction. My favorite author is Napolean Hill. I think his two books, "The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons" and "Think and Grow Rich" are among the best self help books ever written. I love reading LDS church history and other related material. Some of my favorite authors are Andrew C. Skinner, Tad R. Callister, Lee Tom Perry, Hugh Nibley, and Gordon B. Hinckley.
