So far 2014, has been an exciting but busy time for me.
I am finishing a grad school program at Temple University.
I just started a new teaching job.
I'm back at the gym, trying to ease the stress of all that stuff and get myself back into shape and blow some stress off in the process.
I guess I should deliver this warning.
I'm a busy guy.
I don't have loads of free time.
The little free time I have I like to make the most of.
It would be fun to have someone to share that time with.
I'm all of the following things:
Teacher, music enthusiast, sarcastic bastard, goofball,student, dreamer, traveler, skater,writer, Philly sports fan, amateur Philadelphia tour guide, and overall good dude.
I can play a few instruments but I'm not an expert at any.
I am pretty good at bass.
I can fake my way on playing guitar.
I am learning harmonica, churango, and tin whistle.
I like writing, but I am awful at spelling.
Yet I'm really good at proofreading.
I like outdoor activities especially during the warm weather months, camping, hiking, swimming, boating walking in parks, or just sitting in the sun.
I am over 30 years old and the following things still bring a smile to my face:
-riding a bike
-traveling by train
I'm not sure what I'm doing here on an online dating website, guess just attempting to find a way to meet someone new and have some fun.
I live just outside Philly in Bensalem, and while it would be nice to start a relationship, I'd be just as happy to meet some new friends.
Actually, it'd be really nice to meet some new friends.
I feel like all my friends seem to be getting married and having kids.
While I love all my old friends, I'm kind of getting tired with spending my Saturday nights on somebody's couch having a pizza while we watch their toddler play...
I'm cool with that too, but I want to go out!
So who is out there?
Want to come hang?
Lets go to a concert, a museum, a sport event,
We can hike in a park, skate through the city, drive off somewhere aimlessly and explore and then use GPS to find our way home...
I am not sure I believe in the whole "white picket fence" "American Dream" deal. I'm living life as much as I can, and I can't tell you if I will ever "settle down."
I am not looking for a Cinderella, I am sure as hell no prince.
But I'm living my life's for all I can make of it and it might be nice to have a "partner in crime" to share the times with.
I am not a fan of cold weather or the winter.
However, I think I'd like to try snowboarding .
Do you know how to snowboard?
Want to teach me?
I like to travel but I haven't done it enough.
I like whiskey, rum, and beer.
But I also like iced tea, fruit punch and coca-cola.
My favorite cities on the planet are:
and Negril, Jamaica.
I haven't spent as much time in Negril, or Otavalo as I have in Philly, but they are the only other places that feel like home.
I like people who have hobbies. I don't have to be interested in that hobby, but I take interest in seeing what others are interested in.
I've got a ton of hobbies, some more geeky than others.
Speaking of geeky...
I tend to like geeky things that remind me of growing up.
Skateboards, comic books, horror movies, old retro songs, old games, zombies.
People tell me I'm funny.
I don't try to be, but if somebody thinks I am I'll take the compliment.
I'm incredibly sarcastic.
If you like sarcasm, you'll probably be someone I can share a lot of laughs with.
If you don't like sarcasm, you might not be my biggest fan.
Let's leave it at that.
I like chimpanzees, if I could have one as a pet I would.
I'm pretty sure my outlook on life, the world, and encounters with other people all stem from an amazing quote I heard in the movie BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE as a kid,
"Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes."
Oh yeah, I call everyone dude, I'll probably call you dude at some point. Hope you don't mind. If so, sorry dude.
