I once hiked down one side of the grand canyon and out the other. I really do love the outdoors, but I don't so much love the heat, so during the summers I catch up on the TV and Video games. I know video games aren't everyone's favorite thing, but look, I'm in software. Me not playing video games is like a wall street executive not snorting coke off of hooker's asses. I just wouldn't fit in.
I mentioned that I'm a "Former Marine". Sometimes people take issue with the "former" portion of that, and spew that sycophantic "Once a Marine always a Marine! KILL!" stuff. Well, what I mean is that I don't have to get in uniform anymore. I did enjoy my time in, I got to do some really cool stuff and meet some really cool people, but its in the past now and its time to be a civilian again. The hardest part of being a Marine? Fighting that huge monster with a sword after the flaming obstacle course.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mplEt-7HNR8) Four down.
So that's me. I guess the only thing I didn't mention is this: My two favorite things are commitment and changing myself.
