MARK SMOLIN

 

Mark, you have been supportive from the early days, and we are grateful!  Colorado was a BLAST!  You were a great interview, as well as a good friend.  We had a very fun time hanging at Fox and Hound to watch football with you and your friends the next day.  Everyone was really kind, and you are a trip!  We really hope that you'll get that late-night talk show host job someday!

Mark is a self-proclaimed great luggage carrier.

AGE:  25

LOCATION:  Centennial, Colorado

WORK/SCHOOL:  I worked as a bellman/ski bum in the mountains for the winter.  A few days ago I moved back home into my parents house.

RELATIONSHIP STATUS:  single

LIVE WITH ANY OTHER PEOPLE OR ANY PETS?  I live with my parents (maybe why I am still single), Vladimir and Violetta, and I have a pet southern flying squirrel named Pooyan.


EXPLAIN A BASIC WORK/SCHOOL DAY:  At this point I lay in bed for a bit, then get up and make some breakfast.  Then throughout the day I will work on whatever project I have.  For instance I just built a new cage for Pooyan, and my dad and I have been doing a lot of yard work, at home or at grandma's.  Some days I'll go spend some time at the book store.  Then my dad and I will either go to lunch or make something.  Then its the same stuff, either projects, computer, or playing in the sun until dinner around 6.  Sorry, I didn't realize how boring that sounds until I typed it out. 

ACTIVITIES DURING AN AVERAGE WEEK:  My days are mostly the same all week.  I try to lift weights a few times a week.  Monday nights the whole fam watches 24.  Tuesday and Thursday nights I go to martial arts class.  Wednesdays my sister and Grandma come over for dinner and to watch Lost.  Thursdays after class is trivia night at a bar by my house, and all of my friends get together for a few drinks.  I usually read before bed.  I'm supposed to be deciding what to do with the rest of my life, and at this point I am having a hard time deciding.  My plan is to keep doing what I'm doing for a few more weeks and then start job hunting.

DESCRIBE YOUR AVERAGE WEEKEND:  I usually get together with my friends.  We may go party downtown, play some cards, go to the movies etc.  I'm trying to learn how to golf.

 


WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO BUT DO NOT HAVE THE TIME OR MONEY? 
My dream is to go travel.  I miss the beach like crazy.  That's the plan.  I guess a more immediate goal is to save up and get out of my parents house and move closer to the city.

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOUR JOB/SCHOOLING?  I graduated from CU Boulder last August.  Right now I'm enjoying being unemployed, but I won't be able to keep it up much longer.  If I could do anything I would be a real estate prospector.  Or a late night talk show host.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT A LUCID DREAM IS?  yes

DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A LUCID DREAMER?  When I am keeping up with my dream journal I average about 2 lucid dreams a week.  At this point I am closer to one a month, maybe slightly more.  My problem lately has not been going lucid, but I am out of practice at staying lucid.

DO YOU EAT BEFORE GOING TO BED?  sometimes.  Usually not much if I do.

DO YOU HAVE A REGULAR SLEEP SCHEDULE?  I'm working on it.  All winter I was working strange hours (working until midnight some nights and starting at 6am some).  Still pretty irregular though.  I go to sleep around 1 on weeknights and between 1 and 4 on weekends.  I try to not get up before 10 if I can.

DO YOU DREAM DURING NAPS?  If I nap in the morning then yes.  If I nap later in the day, sometimes.  Lately if I nap later in the day I only vaguely remember a dream, or even just some images.

DO YOU SELF-ANALYZE YOUR DREAMS?  I usually try not to.  I don't seem to be very good at it.  Every now and again the meaning of one will seem obvious, but rarely.
