I think I can best be summed up by three life philosophies I take to heart:
Work hard, play harder.
There's always something more you can do.
Expect the best, and give the best.
When it comes to me, driven, intense and proactive are understatements. I'll admit people have said I can be overwhelming, overbearingly intense, and I can expect a lot from people. I seem to suffer from this crazy idea that people should try their best in everyday life, not just when it counts; but hey I never said I was sane.
I do however know what I want, I don't twiddle my thumbs or feel obligated to oblige anyone.
I grew up on a healthy regimen of organic food, filled my time with scouting, cadets and martial arts (all at the same time) and learned by doing. I'm not an academic (but I can respect that lifestyle), I don't need degrees or merit badges to tell me I'm learning; I figure when push comes to shove we all see who's got what anyway. I value tangible experience and competence, and rarely take people's word for anything.
I don't know if that's enough for you, if not ask some questions; I'll rarely refuse to answer. ^.^
