I'll start with a quote I heard once. "If you don't know where you are going to be in five years, you're already there." This simple quote recently, helped me get my act together.
Creativity is like second nature for me, hence the profile name. I love poetry and dabble in writing it myself. For as long as I can remember, art has been a part of my life. My first good drawing was of Johnny Appleseed with a deer eating an apple when I was 5 or so (I still have it). I am also very handy and can cook pretty damn well.
I try not to let things slow me down and have some serious goals in line that I am slowly fulfilling. One of my smaller goals is to learn to dance bachata, merengue, salsa, and tango; how is it I am Hispanic and barley have moves. We should take dance classes together, no?
I'm a pretty easy going and laid back individual. I try not to let small things bother me and move on with my day. That may have sounded cliche, but a lot of my friends have commented how they have rarely ever seen me genuinely mad about something. I'm very organized and cleanliness is a priority for me. I'm an introvert by nature, but if I'm comfortable with you or the crowd I'm with that goes straight out the door. Let's put it like this my family and some of my more privileged friends think I'm crazy. You'll just have to be the judge of that...
Lately, I have been all about routine. I've found that in the past, I would break a lot of my schedule, because I would do "spare of the moment" things. I like things planned ahead, but have found I'm more of a "game time decision" type of guy.
Health is one of my main priorities today. I used to way 230 lbs in 2010 and I'm happy to say I am nowhere near that anymore. I'm currently 56 lbs lighter aiming for an ideal weight of between 155-165, though I might look sick at 155. I can attribute that to a combination of proper eating, Insanity, and now going to the gym days a week; a lot of HIITS, strength training and circuit workouts. I'm not aiming to be a meat head, so full body workouts all day, every day for me. I am a huge calorie counter. A couple of previous co-workers said to me "calorie counters are prone to anxiety attacks. Look at us, we don't care." I replied "yeah, you're prone to heart attacks."
I used to be huge into video games, and I do still play on occasion, but not as much as I used to. I probably play no more than 4-5 hrs/wk. RPG's are my favorite. The Mass Effect series was amazing story telling and game play wise. "If video games have taught me anything, it's that if you've encountered enemies, you're going the right way."
What I can't express out loud I usually tend to write down in my sketchbook and never turn to that page again. This is the method I find for clearing my mind. Just haven't found that special someone yet I feel comfortable sharing everything with. Who knows, maybe you could be that person? :)
