Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an Iranian-American, born and raised in Texas.
I always assume the best of people. I find it hard to believe that
people do bad or negative things intentionally all the time. This
may be an optimistic point of view, but it sure beats being
paranoid and angry all the time.
I iron in my underwear... because ironing is hot.
I have a fairly large family and a dog. My siblings and my dog are
the most important beings in my life right now. Strong family ties
are important to me.
Over the past couple of years, I've been striving for a more

to focus more on the important things in my life and spend less
time and money collecting, maintaing and purchasing things. I'd
rather use that time and money to have adventures with

that I do not typically have meat or dairy in my home, but will
sometimes eat it at other peoples homes, or restaurants.
I don't go to the gym. I've tried and I just don't enjoy it. I get
my exercise in other ways, like walking, riding my bike and a
variety of other outdoors activities that engage me in more ways
than just physical.
I try to get outside as much as possible. I ride my bike pretty
much everywhere. I take walks with a co-worker after lunch, weather
permitting. I love being outdoors, especially hiking and kayaking.
I also enjoy camping, which doesn't happen nearly as often as I'd
