My name is Joshua and I've was born and raised in Sioux Falls,
South Dakota. I endured a few years in Vermillion and a few more in
Davenport, Iowa, and now I'm in Balbriggan to work in Dublin for
the next two years. I'm a traditional Scorpio, but going by
actually astronomy was born under Libra. Also, born in the year of
the tiger. Not sure if any of that means anything though... Anyway,
I like to read and sometimes write, even though scientific writing
has ruined me in that regard; watch movies and play video games;
and on very rare occasions I try to experiment by making some sort
of new home brew for fun. Although out of school now, I still like
to study up on chiropractic techniques and, more for fun, history.
Especially Greek and Roman history and medieval Japan. I have no
tattoos or piercings nor do I smoke. All at least somewhat because
of my chosen profession, but I don't mind being around other people
who do. Not really sure what else to say here. Maybe I'll come up
with something later.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm finally all settled into life here in Balbriggan and seeing
patients at work. The schedule is a bit hectic at times, but
finally normalizing out, so I'm taking advantage of my days off by
exploring some of the sights close enough that I can reach with my
monthly train pass. Most evenings though are spent reading,
watching movies, and occasionally playing games on the computer.
I’m really good at
Diagnosing, cuddling, and cooking. Though that last one is mostly
in that I, at least, like the stuff I cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. Perhaps some of my random foibles?

The six things I could never do without
Besides standard requirements for life;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love, religions, life and death, chiropractic, patients, finances,
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, playing video games, watching a movie. Sometimes all three
at once! Impressive, no? No...
Occasionally it is spent heading out to walk along the beach a bit
or around town or out in a pub for a couple of drinks, but never
too much as I work most Saturdays.
You should message me if
You want to. Really, that's a good enough reason for me. I won't
