If I had to pick one personal quote to sum up my outlook on life it would be this "We live in an infinite universe where anything is infinitely possible and infinitely probable". With that being said I don't think anything is out of the realm of possibility if you work hard enough for it. Like James T. Kirk, I don't believe in a no win scenario.
I haven't edited this thing yet this decade so I guess its about time for an update if I intend on taking this thing seriously. Well, as seriously as one can take an online dating site... I moved into the Montrose about 2 years ago and I absolutely love it. I used to classify sections of town into many places like Spring, The Woodlands, Humble, Downtown, Kingwood, ect, now I categorize it as 2 sections, the Montrose, and places I would never live. It's really amazing how living a mere 32.5 miles off alignment from where you need to be can completely change your life. I just recently moved from the slummy spot I initially landed at upon transition into the inner loop universe and into a snazzy little apartment on the back of a very well maintained 108 year old Victorian house with a skyline view. I really couldn't be happier.

That being said, I try to live my life to the fullest and enjoy every moment of it. I love going on random crazy adventures out to the ends of the earth to attend wild festivals and concerts. If I don't get out of town at least once a month I start to go crazy. As frequently as I travel to Austin, Dallas, Denton, New Braunfels, and anywhere else epic happenings are occurring in this beautiful little Republic of Texas, I had not left the state in over a decade (3 months prior to the notorious 9/11 scandal to be precise) until my very recent trip to San Francisco, which was absolutely fucking amazing. No joke. If you haven't been, I'd highly recommend it. Now that I have confirmed that air travel does in fact still work and that you can board a plane without getting molested by a gestapo agent in cold rubber gloves, I am highly considering upgrading my future adventures from regional road warrior to jet-set global adventurer. We'll see how that works out, guess I better start collecting airline miles...
Another favorite quote of mine is by Douglas Adams, "Everything in the universe tends to work itself out exactly as it should." With that being said, I really don't waste a lot of time worrying about things or getting angry about stuff that is out of my control. I am on a mission to remove all the hate and anger from my life. If something upsets me, I just don't associate with it any more. Done. I don't really get angry any more, I just have varying grades of disappointment. I don't know if I would describe myself as "laid back" as I tend to live life in the fast lane, and I enjoy a good heated debate, but I am definitely not easy to start a fight with.
