Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Right... so...hmm...Welcome to my profile said the spider to the
fly... Wait, that doesn't sound right. Then again, neither does
this profile, not at the moment anyway. Let's fix that, shall
"Who am I?" is a deep psychological and philosophical question and
I'm expected to answer, nay, summarize all of that in a little box?
Not only that, they expect you to glean enough information to
formulate an opinion as to who I am and whether or not you'd like
to know me better all based on those things about myself that I've
chosen to share in a public forum. Does anyone else find this
process a little ridiculous?
I don't know about you, but I refuse to be put into a box.
I might be showing my age here (pfft, showing my age...who am I
kidding? It's right at the top of the screen) but I'd like, if I
may, to answer the question in the words of Edie Brickell and New
"What I am is what I am..."
(Now, for those of you reading this who were born after 1985, you
may need to look the band/song up on YouTube. That's ok, I'll
wait...it's worth the effort.)
I realize that I haven't given you very much to go on, but to me
this is just a jumping off point. Call me old fashioned, but I
still believe that you can't really start to get to know a person
without first meeting them in person.
So I'll leave it here... I've done my bit. The ball is in your
court, my friend
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like most of us, I'm doing my best to live it the best way I know
how. Trying to maintain a happy balance between work and spending
time with my family (both actual and extended/adopted) and doing
the things I love, that feed and nurture my soul.
Not too long ago I went through something that changed me forever.
As I travel along the path to regain some of the things I've lost
as a result, I also find that I've acquired new insights and a new
perspective on life. (Funny how life changing events will do that
to you. Oh wait Life Changing....) While I continue to struggle
with many things, I am a fighter and I can honestly say that I'm
enjoying the ride.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

(Side Note: I'm a little surprised that people don't tend to
mention their sexual prowess in this section. Is the subject just
that taboo? Are we all just that modest or is there something more?
Just an observation.)

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, I think. I tend to smile a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No Friday's ever typical with me. Come to think of it, there's not
much that's typical about the other nights of the week either. I
like to live in the moment, wherever it may take me :)
