So there you have it - the german I was able to retain from high
school. Unfortunately I think that my german teacher would be a
little saddened by this.
My name is Tony and I'm a newly hired RN at the Mayo Clinic and
will be orienting for the next month or two, but I'm moving
forward. None the less, I'm enjoying everything that life is
offering me. Some activities that I really enjoy are running/hiking
biking (trail and

. I'm pretty sure I"m a geek. I took Calc., Anatomy
and Physiology I, and Physics II - not because they were in my
major - but because I thought they would be fun. I very much enjoy
logic puzzles and problem solving. If there was one question I
asked myself more than any other, it would be "I wonder how that
works?", or "I wonder why that happened?". There's hardly a
question I won't answer - so feel free to ask to your heart's

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As nursing jobs had been a bit tough to come by, I'd been enjoying
my passion in life - music. I was involved in seven theater
productions last year, and I averaged a different gig (either or
music or theater) every three weeks, and more than one performance
a week over the year. I don't plan to top last year's statistics in
the future, but it was a lot of fun. I'm living on the family
(hobby) farm, and doing more work around the farm than we usually
do in a year (I think my dad realizes that I may not be around next
spring and summer and is trying to make good use of this free
labor). I'm about 24 credits (at least 14 in lessons) short of my
BA in music - so I plan to finish that once I've settled into a
nursing job. Recently I'd been subbing for Triton School District
in the middle school nurse's office, and that was pretty fun.
Besides, who can turn down a pay check? I've learned to appreciate
the phrase "...just 'be'."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Memorizing music is a definite strong suit for me. I'll have a
piece memorized before I can play it all the way through. It's
really just my crutch for my poor sight-reading ability. I can read
music just fine - I took four semesters of theory. Honestly - I
think that my processor, or interface between that and my fingers
can't handle the data fast enough.
I like to think that I'm a good musician. The piano pieces that
I've prepared I think are approaching concert quality. I've been
drumming for the last 14 years with various groups - and I can sit
down and play along with just about anything. It's interesting
though - I can sight read drum music pretty well. Maybe it's just
piano that overloads my brain.
Being a jack of all trades - there's LOTS of things I do. You can
be the judge of if I'm the master of none or not, but I probably
have some experience doing almost anything you might name. Try me -
it will be fun! :o)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told by a friend that I have a "cool confidence" vibe
that I give off. However, as close second could be "Your shoes are
untied...." I, contrary to common belief, am aware of this. If I'm
going from my front door, to my car, to someone else's front door -
my shoes will most likely not be tied, unless I can get them on
without untying them. I'm generally a very kind person and am very
slow to anger.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I think my favorite book of all time is The Andromeda Strain by
Michael Crichton. I was hooked on Harry Potter after book three
though - fun series. I just finished up The Lost Symbol - talk
about a action read. Movies...hmmm...as with almost everthing in my
life - I have a rather eclectic taste in movies. Among my favorites
are Patch Adams, Phenomenon, Polar Express, Green Mile, Shrek(s),
Aladdin, and Nightmare before Christmas, and Con Air. I like just
about any kind of music, with the general, but not absolute,
exception of rap and country - there are songs of both genres that
I enjoy. I don't have many favorites, but Beethoven is my favorite
piano music to play, and usually to listen to. I'm not a hard sell
on food, but if I had to pick a favorite - I think it would be
either a taco bar at home, or Outback steak and sides.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm going to agree with some other profiles I've read and say that
people are not things. In no particular order...
1) my computer
2) cell phone
3) my car
4) my bike
5) my backpack
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm doing on this earth? How does that work? I wonder if I can
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
a) in rehearsal
b) in a performance
c) at my best friend Adam's house - sometimes his brother's.
d) hanging out with my brother(s)
I'll stop by one of the bars in town every now and then, but for
the most part it's to people watch. Quite interesting to just sit
back and observe the social behavior of Homo sapien intoxicus.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I just think it feels weird to sleep naked...
