My self-summary
I just deleted my old summary to start anew! I wrote that years ago (my first time around) and I think I've changed a bit where it is necessary to update it.

I think now spontaneity and flexibility are the key to my happiness. Carefree timelessness (I.e. going with the flow) is a good way to live. Appreciating the small and simple things in life such as hanging out by the ocean, or a good conversation, or experiencing something for the first time. Definitely a key for my serenity...

I love working out now too. I do these outdoor boot camp style classes 5 days a week and I love it. I am training for the Tough Mudder in October, but more importantly I just feel better when I work out consistently. It's good for my psyche and I'm more motivated to be a better person too, and I like that :-)

I have six years sober in AA and I say this because it's such a big part of my life now that I wouldn't mind having that in common with my future partner. It is not a deal breaker though.

I'm looking for someone on here that is in a good place in their life. Someone who is not done enjoying life, but is more in tune with what they want to get out of it.

I also want someone who is willing to try anything and everything at least once!! And still gets excited at the prospect of trying that new thing! That's a rush for me..

My friends have described me as adventurous, knowledgeable, well traveled, optimistic, open-minded, easy-going, funny, goal oriented, and a great friend.

I guess I would love to meet someone who shares some of those similiar qualities.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a manager at a bookstore in Calabasas and am truly in my element. The constant interaction with people and the moving around the store work perfectly with my personality. That said, I just started my own online bookstore. We'll see where it takes me. Having a lot of fun doing it though...
I’m really good at
Being in the moment, yet keeping my eye on the bigger picture.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I totally run the gamut when it comes to books. I read whatever appeals to me (one of the benefits of working in a bookstore). I am currently reading Brad Thor's An Act Of War. A nice beach read. Lately, I have been putting down the books though to read the Wall Street Journal which I just subscribed to. I used to be a financial advisor in another life and still enjoy the stock market and want to get up to speed on business/world trends. I'm old school, I really do love a good newspaper :-)

One of my all-time favorite books is Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart.

For movies, my taste seems to veer to ones that are set in the real world. I like comedies, dramas, and action mostly. A few that I like are Shawshank Redemption, L.A. Story, Big Fish, and Braveheart (and from my childhood I gotta mention Stand By Me).

For music my taste is all over the place. If I hear something good I'll listen to it. Some bands that I like: The Roots, Pennywise, The Vandals, Norah Jones, Josh Ritter, Metallica, Eazy E (old school rap is great!), Willie Nelson.

For food, My favorite is sushi and, I have to admit, my mom's schnitzel. There is great food in every culture though.
The six things I could never do without
Have to put the family and friends first.
My job. (a job?)
Carefree timelessness
New Experiences.
Travel (at least one new place a year is my goal!)
(and I have to put my car in there too since I do live in L.A.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trying not to overthink. Keeping my mind where my feet are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with some friends having dinner. If it was a rough week, just relaxing at home catching up on tv.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A guilty pleasure of mine is watching those surprise soldier reunion videos sometimes on Youtube. I don't know why. I just like seeing their genuine reactions.
