I like to learn, and I love competition. I try to make that a quality, rather than something obnoxious and abrasive. The idea of becoming a better person interests me, so, in everything I do, I'm generally looking to learn something, to get better at something, and to develop myself.
I value reading and physical exercise; I find that my mental state reflects my physical state and I'm at my happiest when I'm exercising regularly. For that reason, I exercise six times a week, balancing cardio and resistance training. I don't do it to look better, I do it to feel better, and to be better. The aesthetics don't interest me, and I certainly don't "check in" at the gym on facebook.
I love meeting new people and seeing the world from other perspectives. I value empathy, understanding and acceptance. I value ambition, I value dreams and the pursuit of them. I love passion. No matter what you do, if you love doing it, if you live for it, it brings a smile to my face. From knitting to absailing to playing competitive sports to playing competitive video games, and everything between and outside of those things, passion is priceless and I love yours.
If you're on the outside looking in, I'd be glad to know you!
