I'm imperfect, and I hope you are too. I work as hard as I need to, and play as softly as I can.
I am not a slender man, but neither does the very ground tremble with my every footfall. However, I am a regular exerciser, with a 1st degree black belt in my thrice-weekly karate class. I've also recently completed the Couch to 5k running program, ran the Rugged Maniac and Warrior Dash races, but due to bum hips have been pulled from running for the foreseeable future. I'm hoping this is not permanent, and am trying to find a workout that does as much for me. I've been actively losing weight - still have a way to go, but I'm slowly getting there.
I am divorced (for real, truly, permanently divorced, and have been for years), and a single dad to the coolest thirteen-year-old kid ever. She is my life, and I have her 1/2 of the time. Until recently, I worked for a publisher in Waltham, and teach karate to kiddos on the weekend. I was formerly attempting to be a nursing student, but the realities of dadding, working, etc., made committing to a regular lab schedule impractical. I am instead finishing off the degree I *should* have finished in 1997 if I hadn't been so into making out/sleeping in/not finishing degrees. It's in creative writing, and I am lately churning out some stuff that many people don't hate. It's fun!
Politically, I am a liberal. Progressive ideals and causes are very important to me. If you don't believe that same sex couples should be allowed to marry, or if you think cutting funds to PBS and NPR and education are the way to a stronger nation, I am not the dude for you. Also, if you keep guns in the house, it will never work.
Also, I considered growing my hair out for locks of love, and failed horribly. I got to the point where I was one dirt bike away from looking like the bad guy in an 80s movie, and cut it off.
