I like to hang out with people around a bonfire in my back yard (it's legal here in Machesney Park, IL, to do that.) Soon I'll rebuild a nice fire pit and get a few picnic tables.
I really love reading a good fiction book (R.A. Salvatore is my hands down favorite author.) I also write, primarily fiction, but occasionally other things. I enjoy listening to older rock music (60s/70s/80s), from mellow love bird stuff like James Taylor to AC/DC. I also like to watch a lot of movies.
I love my pets - I have a german shepherd/husky mix dog, a couple land tortoises, and a couple cats.
I occasionally do some weight lifting and martial arts. These have kept me in fair physical shape... I'm 6'2, brown hair, brown eyes, glasses, about 210 lbs, with 3 tattoos (nothing offensive.)
I do enjoy drinking alcohol occasionally, and I do like to smoke a good pipe from time to time (tobacco blends only, no crazy drugs!) These activities usually make me feel like having deep/intellectual conversations, but not always.
My religious views are broad - I've somewhat studied the basic mechanics of the major religions of the world. It will be sufficient enough to say that my religion is based almost totally on my own virtues (honestly, hard working, etc), and taking obstacles in life as challenges to be used for personal growth into a better human being. I do occasionally meditate in the Taoist sense, but the bulk of my philosophy (including fate, etc.) is based from ancient European culture. Whenever I say this, I have to stress that I'm in no way a neo nazi, in fact I firmly think all people and all genders are equal in all ways. Or, realisticly, that at least that they should be.
I'm a sucker for macaroni and cheese.
I am smart, hard working, and fun
