Okay, still here? Great! This is where I get a little serious. I went to college in order to become a Music Teacher because teaching and music were two great passions of mine. I spent 2 years as a substitute teacher and one year as an actual teacher, and came to the conclusion that it was not the life style I wanted for myself. This would be a great topic to go into more detail about later, but for now it's just too much text to type out and siphon through. I have sense left the education world, but I maintain my music by performing on my brass instruments in a concert band stationed in Knoxville, TN. Music is still my passion, but it has become more of a hobby than a career path.
So Eric, what career are you pursuing now? Good question! As of right now, I am currently seeking my own path and trying out different things to see what I enjoy more. My direction is currently in desk work or factory work. I love organizing and planning, but I also love to create...so those are my criteria I am searching for. I am currently a temporary contractor for a local business where I basically package stuff up for them. It isn't glorious work and isn't full time, but it is a step out of the education world and into a new world for me.
As far as lifestyle goes, I'm pretty easy to get along with. I have my ways of going about things and I enjoy what I do. I never regret my choices, even the bad ones. Bad choices are just learning experiences. I live alone with my cat, Sage, who is my little baby and has become more popular with my friends than I have. On a typical day, I'm normally found sitting on my couch and playing video games or watching something on the intarwebs! I am an introvert and definitely enjoy just my peace and quiet alone or with a small group of people. Big social gatherings I can do, but I cannot do them for long.
Am I here for a relationship? Yeah, you could say that. I am mostly here to branch out and meet new people, but if a relationship blossoms from that then all the better. I'm currently happy with my life and being by myself, but I most definitely will not close the door on any possibility of something happening. I enjoy talking with people and keep a very open mind about things. I also like to make people happy, one way or another. One smile from someone makes me feel like I did something important with my day and I can chalk it up as a success! If you want to know more about any of this, feel free to ask...I'm more or less an open book :)
