I've spent most of my life living in a gangsters paradise.
So,, I'm a big nerd. I like doing all sorts of neat projects. I program microcontrollers,, build electronics,, wire stuff up in my car. I recently installed a Wii and have been getting through the new Super Mario Bros. I have a large collection of Pokemon cards. I don't really play or collect anymore but I'm always down to duel!!
I really like traveling around this state. I have a list of things I still want to do and many things I'd still like to do again. I picked up a skate board a while back. I'm trying to learn how to ride it well. I started snowboarding a couple years ago and this last season,, I got really comfortable with it and can go straight down hills and carve hard. I also enjoy occasional hikes. I really want to hike Rainier.
I recently decided to be homeless. My apartment raised my rent every year and I really badly want property of my own,, so I decided I was going to save that $700 a month and move in to my car. Its been great so far. I've got internet thanks to clearwire,, a place to clean off with a gym membership,, and storage for all my stuff is pretty cheap. I'm not exactly slumming it. I have the Wii which I mentioned earlier,, Netflix,, a full size pillow top bed. I go to the beach a lot more now which is super fun. I do miss being able to wake up and stumbling around to the bathroom. I now have to get dressed and walk a bit. My explorer isn't the easiest vehicle to live in,, but I think I'm rocking it.
I spend a lot of my time working,, going out to eat with friends,, driving around,, swimming,, and helping friends with projects. I'm really trying to get involved in Arduino groups,, SCA events and moped rides. It,s tough to get involved with anything organized because I work 2:00 to 10:30 PM every weekday. I have met a couple people in my building who are loosely involved in these things which is encouraging.
I hope to find people who are free spirited,, adventurous,, loves to learn and explore.
