My self-summary
Moved out here 8yrs ago. No intention of moving back to the right side of the mountains, as the left side and left coast are more my style.

Hard working, and enjoy my work and pleasure. This includes recovering from ankle crushing minivans that cut motorcycle seasons out of my life...

I naturally gravitate towards the ground. I use this pull in downhill mountain biking, saving on effort in pedalling and all!
What I’m doing with my life
Living it and enjoying my time. A breadth of knowledge that expands with reading, and a depth in some that continues with passion.
I’m really good at
Not breaking any bones doing the physical activities I enjoy. Only bones I've had broken are due to someone else's careless actions.

Being easy going, analytical, and adaptable, I embrace the creative part of myself when there is time. Math and software can be very astounding.

Basically anything that doesn't eat another animal, I'll eat. Fish being an exception. All kinds of veggies, though there is a special place and always room for fermented foods (kimchi, and bean curd sheets, etc). And Vancouver is lovely for how much variety of food there is.

Creativity
Activity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What will I eat next? Will I cook it or seek it out somewhere? What menu item have I not tried?

What project should I be working on? Should it be for career advancement or pure enjoyment?

How the message produced is actually processed by the consumer. How patience is viewed as inaction. How so many people are so vastly different and how to create an environment where all can contribute and reach various forms of consensus. How to keep the population informed and educated.

Why"a life examined is worth living" is considered "better" when even those that don't indulge in introspection have just as worthy a life as anyone else.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretend any night of the week is Friday night. Than the arbitrary "Friday night" doesn't hold you back on the other nights

You will not find me in a club or bar. I can't pretend to hear someone in a loud noisy environment. A concert at the biltmore, that's a different story.
You should message me if
-You find the percentage system to be flawed and only as useful as a general guide
-You respect independence and cooperation
-Or you want to
