Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived a number of places, some places for school, others for
work, and a handful because I wanted to check out something new. I
must admit, I miss the sky in New Mexico. Paintings and photos do
it little justice. Right now I am out in New Orleans, I plan on
moving out to Anderson/Belton sometime around the new year. I left
New Mexico to help my family move from Ohio down to Belton last
year(2014) so they could try out something new from the corporate
lives they have lived for the past 20 some odd years. After staying
for a month or so I moved down to New Orleans. I had visited here
once before just a few days after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. I
was part of the Federal Response known as JTFK(joint task force
katrina). At the time I was an active duty combat medic with the
82nd Airborne. The tenacity and love of the town by the locals was
one of the most moving things I had seen. Its a neat city but I
grew accustomed to the slower pace of things back in New Mexico.
NOLA is not overly fulfilling though it can be entertaining. I'm
currently working as a line cook, they pay really well but its a
constant cycle of running in circles all day every day.
I would say I'm far more spiritual than religious though I do
practice a small handful of dogmatic traditions relating to
buddhism. I view the Dalai Lama and Karmapa as some of the most
driven and spiritually sound people in the world since Gandhi or
Sai-Baba. I was raised openly towards religion though I went to
church summer schools, and attended various christian churches when
I was young, usually with my grandmother. As an adult I randomly go
to mass(I prefer latin masses typically). I do believe Jesus Christ
was one of the few truly divine to have ever walked upon this
earth. I'll attend Buddhist Temple(I tend to end up here more often
than any of the others) for meditation times and occasionally for
practices or teachings. One time I even attended a revival. It was
a really happy experience though at times a little oppressive. I've
even attended a series of full and new moon coven gatherings out in
the mountains of the high desert. I've also attended Mosque several
times and have celebrated Hanukkah ceremonies at a Synagogue. I've
found one common thread in all of these places and with all of
these events. They all, at their core intent, is to alleviate the
suffering of those around them and for the world. Ideology and
emotion get in the way of that intent, and so is the way of the
I'm a rather mmmm... nerdy person may be the word? I play some
video games but most of my time at the computer is spent either
programming or looking up things, either the news or relating to
something I'm tinkering with. I own a drone and am working on
building a larger design for possible agricultural use. I do spend
a fair amount of time outside but no where near as much as I did
while in New Mexico or during my short stay in SC. Its just
oppressively humid being in the middle of a swamp but just outside
the reach of the ocean winds.
I follow the news, politics, and international news daily. You need
to know about the world you live in if you hope to effect a change.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Philosophy of Atheism
Spiritual concepts such as how ones consciousness changes after
death. Heaven, hell purgatory, the bardo, nothingness, do we come
back to eath as someone else or something else. I personally think
its a little bit of all of them but its dependant on the
individual. The many different religions are so similar to
eachother in thier ideals of an afterlife and morality. So I'm
choosing to explore the one that looks at the individual and thier
emotional/psychological responses to everyday events in a rather
scientific and systematic approach
How to blend science and faith without sounding like a nutcase. I
have yet to figure that one out so I usually refrain lol(Nye and
Tyson are my heros!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually working. I'm a line cook and somebody has to feed the
tourists. On the rare event I'm not working on a friday night I
will be working the morning shift lol. After that though I usually
go out for dinner and a drink of two at one of the new restaurants
that seem to open monthly. I've been known to go to city park or
canal place and catch a movie after eating. I know, what shockingly
normal thing to do...
