I have a job and I do it to the best of my ability. With that job, I take care of myself, help people I care about when they need it, take steps to make my life a better quality than it is today, and take steps to ensure the futures of myself and anyone else who may come into my life in a permenant fashion.
While I didn't finish college, I feel like I qualify as educated, read frequently, and keep up to date with the world around me. Sometime it apparently became "cool" to be a moron - this is a trend I shall continue to reject.
My hobbies are broad - from the nerdy world of building computers and watching documentaries on string theory to working on cars and building things. My biggest hobby is the martial arts - from Muay Thai and MMA to Judo and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, I've found a love for all of them. I've even taught a string of women's self defense classes and genuinely think everyone should be able to defend themselves in some capacity. As a function of this particular hobby, I have spent a number of occasions in a ring or cage fighting other human beings. There isn't enough room here for me to explain my philosophy on why despite its appearance, it is a non-violent act, but I promise it isn't what the Tapout shirt wearing douche bags would have you believe.
I'm not a "tough guy", I don't promote violence, I'm not a drunk, and I'd much rather settle things with a nice philosophical debate than anything physical. I see myself as the eternal underdog and would do anything to help out the little guy.
I love to help people and making others smile...my ability to have empathy and understanding for those around me is probably my favorite part about myself. It has always been hard for me to compliment myself, but in all honesty, I have a very big heart. (metaphorically speaking - medically, I am fine.)
Finally, as a function of being a proper man, I am honest - even in situations where it would benefit me greatly not to be. I'm not sure when a group of guys got together and decided to make every girl on Earth think anyone with an adam's apple is a liar, but...I just don't have the talent to do it. The same goes with cheating, manipulating, and whatever other stupid thing "guys do." I was lucky enough to skip that stage, I suppose, but really - I've grown up to be a man and that comes with a minimal amount of B.S.
