I tend to have an unfortunate habit of thinking too much. It's
something I can't turn off. I spend an inordinate amount of time
seeking distraction, or at least focus. Something to pull my mind
away from random subjects. It's not that I particularly mind most
of the random subjects, however I lack an outlet. I don't have that
person around me with whom I can discuss, and bounce ideas off of.
The internet is of no help, it's a huge distortion chamber that
inevitably leads to somebody inevitably proving Godwin right, and
everybody feeling more idiotic for being involved.
When I do focus, I tend to over-analyze whatever it is holds my
attention for the moment. For this I'd be accused of being a nerd,
or a geek. It also probably helps that my preferred distractions
tend to be exercises in conceptual thinking.
Most of my life is fairly settled at this point. I have a solid
career, stable finances, with my only debts being a house that
isn't underwater. Sadly, anymore, that's more of a sign that I'm
boring more than anything else. I don't go for flashy, expensive
things. I just live within my means and try to enjoy life.
