I grew up on a steady diet of Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor, and cynicism. My sense of humor and general outlook on life reflects this, but being cynical just isn't that much fun, and I've tired of it. I'd rather improve my life with new experiences, rather it's something small like a new beer or book, exploring side streets downtown, or planning a week long trip somewhere. I've not had the chance to travel much in my life (spent a ton of time in Toronto though), but have great aspirations to do so. I'm a progressive person, and I think it's extremely important to experience other people's cultures and perspectives. Life was pretty damn boring before I realized that.
I bought a house about a year ago, and while I'm no contractor I am renovating it bit by bit. I'm finding myself really enjoying doing the research, and learning how to do more with my hands than basic repairs. It's not inside the loop, but close enough that I've been accused of being an inner loop snob.
I've not done much camping, hiking, or indoor rock climbing since high school, and would really like to do that more. I miss the Frio River!
