Sometimes we become so obsessed with thinking and observing everything around us, trying to know everything and being involved everywhere, we forget that this is all just our representation of what we experience around us using our senses. So few of us actually take the time for introspection, to exclude ourselves from our surroundings and involvements and focus on who we are.
What we are left with is a collection of feelings, impulses, morals, mannerisms, life lessons.... you get the idea. These things are essentially the make up of what you are and, more importantly, who you are as a sentient self aware organism. So with that in mind, here's the person that I am.
Smile Easy. That's a little thing I let slip in conversations. I believe a single smile has the ability to chance someone's day. And it's to easy to smile, so why aren't we all doing it? If you can't think of anything to smile about then I would recommend you reevaluate your life.
I prefer to stay level headed, calm, cool and collected at all times. Becoming overly emotional, stressing out, being paranoid and fearing things literally impairs your cognitive ability. Yes it makes you dumb. Ever hit the wall out of anger and after a while you realize how stupid it was?
I was taught this when I was 4 years old by my first jiu-jitsu instructor and it has stuck with me. Since then I've applied it to every aspect of my life.
I'm inquisitive. If I don't know something, find something curious or doubt something, I will probably research it to get a better understanding of it. I strive to understand everything that has or could have an influence on my life.
I'm a pacifist. Violence offers very little solutions to problems and I deem it completely unnecessary. I will however effectively defend myself and my friends if the treat persists.
I follow a strict code of conduct. That's where manners, language, etiquette and social behavior come in. Please and thank you, if you're still not sure.
...I'll stop here for now but you get the picture.
So all that's left is a description of me. Well I'm quite, but not so quite tall, with an athletic build. I keep my hair (brown) short and neat and my facial hair well groomed. I have a smart sense of fashion, preferring to wear body fitting clothing and I don't give a crap about brand names or trends. Brown/green eyes and some freckles.
Some other unrelated things:
- PC > Console
- Magic The Gathering is still an awesome card game and I'm proud of my collection
- Lego is still considered as a valid pass-time
- Physical exercises don't make you a jock, talking about physical exercises all day long does.
- Manners is holding the door open and keeping your mouth shut about it. (Ironic isn't it)
- Dragon Ball Z was the best part of my childhood
- Fastfood is not real food
And that's all I have to say about that.
