I just moved to Huntington Beach from Arizona in July and I love it! I transferred out here for a great job that keeps me fully engaged and has endless possibilities. I work long hours but if there is any day light left when I get home I will take my dog skating (I skate he runs).
I don't know anyone out here except for a few guys I work with. Luckily the company I work for has an ice hockey team which I joined and very much enjoy because it gives me a reason to push myself to get in better shape. I have been playing since I was 12. I know, not a common sport for someone from Phoenix, its probably my Russian blood.
Since I moved to Huntington Beach I feel obligated to learn how to surf - need to get around to that.
I tend to be shy until I warm up to people, my sense of humor is sarcastic and extremely witty so you need to be somewhat intelligent and not thin skinned to get along with me.
As far as music, it depends on my mood, but I have never been in the mood for country.
Also, I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany
