Back here after some peaceful time-off. Ready for another break now. No. (Fight it). OK I'm back.
I like meditation (getting better), 65 degrees, reading/playing chess with strong green tea. I also like plenty of other things.
What I’m doing with my life
Comedy (stand-up, some sketch) with a part-time corporate gig to pay the bills.
Interested in the struggle: What am I avoiding by presenting a certain self? (parallels to online dating... appearances, appearances)
Recently got into psychology (the next sections are more fun I promise), mindfulness, nature of mind or lack thereof, insecurity, how trauma can manifest in the body, accepting vulnerability/weakness, finding in weakness not only strength but more importantly connection. Trying to merge some of this into comedy but it's like a left lane rush hour merge.
I’m really good at
-Dipping baked goods into coffee/tea and NOT making a mess (not
becoming when the item breaks off and ruins the coffee)
-Over-analyzing my diet, optimal caffeine intake, etc
-Replaying (and winning) arguments in my head.
-Tennis, table tennis.
-Pointing at dogs
