Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I always thought thinking was the thing, but I'm coming to see the
value of consistency - so my new slogan is: "Don't use your brain,
do it the same!" That said, things can get old when it's all
nose-to-the-grindstone; I'm looking into old outlets of expression
for refreshment (I guess I manage to draw a sketch or two on some
hikes), and I'm always impressed by others' talents.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
On one hand, there is a lot of stability in my life right now, but
there are a lot of changes near on the horizon that I'm viewing
with one part excitement and one part trepidation. I'm an engineer,
and I've been working in one area for a while so I'm at a point
where I have to decide whether I should dig in and become an expert
or broaden my experience. At the same time, I'm really hoping to
meet someone and wondering how that might change everything.

I've been reading about frozen Kazakhstan and Siberia to convince
myself that it's not that bad around here. It's not really working,
so plan B is reading about tropical rain forests...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water: Paddling in the summer, swimming in the winter (indoors, not
the polar bear plunge).
Lists: Not to complete, but to let me know I'll never run out of
things to do.
Family: Although my closest relatives are 900 miles away, I still
keep in touch.
Bicycle (finally back in season!)
Unstructured time: To offset my list-mania.
Travel: I'm taking on wilderness expeditions while I'm single; if
you're into that, that's cool, but I wouldn't mind a relaxing
vacation now and then too!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work when I'm at work, trying not to think about work when I'm at
home, and bears when I'm camping.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Deciding whether I should join up at the last minute for a hike
that will take waking up at 4 AM on Saturday, or sleeping in and
reading and cooking all day. I don't always choose the latter,
which really surprises me- but I like looking at the pictures I
take when I'm slouching the next weekend!
