*Mike (that's me...hi...I'll be 30 in Aug...on a Friday and I have no idea how to celebrate...help?)
*Introvert (homebody, not social, watch from the sidelines, interact well with people I know but not strangers)
*Gamer (Xbox 360...FPS 99% of the time)
*Father (son will be 5 in June, daughter would have been 6 in July)
*Son (obvious...two parents, dad passed away in 06)
*Not the holy ghost (not religious, have certain beliefs, but don't care for church or bible)
*Not a sibling (lonely)
*Liberal Centrist (I lean towards liberal, but I'm somewhat centrist politically...don't care to discuss politics much)
*Photography (mostly my son, but I love my dSLR and would really like to get involved in more architecture and other types of photography)
*Cars (I like sports cars and anything that can be modified...I am a backyard mechanic and do 99% of my own auto work...just can't weld)
*Jack Reacher books (Author Lee Child...amazing books with a little bit of everything...they're adventurous and exciting and action/language packed)
I don't know what my plans are for the future. I know what I'd like to do, but will I actually do them? I want to go to school for electronics technology. I like tinkering with electronics, tearing them apart, putting them back together, occasionally repairing or changing things. I also like the idea of going for robotics automation. I'd like to own my own place again some day, but probably not a house this time...townhome perhaps. Owning my own business would be nice...I'm thinking liquor store because I've worked in one and understand the day to day operations and now I work on the other side for a distributor delivering liquor to stores/bars/etc.
I like music...who doesn't. I like a variety, but I'm not as open minded as so many other people seem to be. I'm not really into mellow...I like more upbeat stuff. Examples...KQ92 and 93X are my go to stations for the radio. The Current is in my presets but I don't listen much. KDWB mostly for the morning show, but sometimes I'll catch songs I like. I guess I'd say give me classic rock or alternative rock and I'm happiest.
I like movies too. Go figure. I'll watch seriously anything. There are movies I watch and I don't really like, but I still watch them. I'm into thrillers and comedy the most.
Food is good...all kinds...I won't turn too many things down (in the "normal" aspect of food). I like whiskey (2Gingers is my favorite right now)...beer (keep it less hoppy usually...Nordeast, Surly Hell, Tilburg's, Surly Coffee Bender...but I do like trying other craft and foreign beers anytime).
I don't eat healthy, I'm not really active. But...I am about to try P90X to see if I can kick my own ass. I have a goal to be in good shape (not 6-pack amazing shape, but good shape) by 30. Well I've got 4 months...so May 1st I will begin and one of three things will happen. 1)I'll enjoy it and do well. 2)I'll kill myself. 3)I'll quit and never work out again.
I'm going to start cutting out pop and substitute a lot more water, but I'm sure I'll splurge once in a while. I'm also going to try to change my diet just a little to help with P90X. Can't expect miracles.
That's me in a nutshell. Nothing super exciting, but I'm a nice guy. I like to try new things. I'm courteous and considerate. According to others I'm honest to a fault. I have my flaws like other people do. I'm not the happiest with my current job (trying to change that). I am somewhat compulsive from time to time. I'm not super neat and orderly (I've gotten better at keeping my space clean, but it's messy...I suppose that comes with having a soon to be 5 year old).
