For starters, I'm a very laid back and relaxed individual who leads a mild life free of stress and drama. I have a job doing what I've always loved to do and it pays the bills to get me by. I've never been, and will never be a financially motivated individual. As long as I have enough money to keep a roof over my head, food in my belly, and a little to spread around for leisure activity, that's all I need to be happy with my life as it is.
I don't mix well with drama, or stress at all. This is not to say I can't handle those occurrences in my life; I actually handle them better than most. I just have a strong desire to keep them out of my life as much as possible. I'd rather spend my life laughing and enjoying my time with people than angry and bitching about the things that went wrong. Shit happens. Fact. Sometimes you can't avoid it, and most times you don't deserve it. Move on and get back to enjoying life.
The only certainty in life is death, and when your time is up, you take nothing with you. What matters is what you leave behind. Material things break down, wear out, and move on just as we do, but the friendships, laughter, and compassion we seed throughout each and every day of our lives are the impressions we make on others' lives, and will shape their future long after we're gone. This is the philosophy that drives my life, and leads me to reflect upon my choices and my actions.
I work what used to be a "normal" schedule, but now it seems so odd; Monday through Friday from 9am to 5:30 pm, I'm working. Occasionally there's work to be done on weekends and holidays that's unexpected and part of my responsibility, but those occurrences are few and far between. Outside of work, I spend my free time with my family and friends, playing video games, watching movies/tv shows, cooking, and dabbling in other various hobbies that are relaxing and invigorating. I'm not a hiker, biker, climber, runner, speed walker, scooter...er? Anyway the point is that I'm not really at all an athletic/exercise-liking person. I altered my diet and eating habits specifically to reduce caloric intake so I could lose/maintain weight without having to exercise.
To clarify, that's not to say that I'm some shut-in hermit who only peers out the windows to give the stink eye to kids playing on my lawn, mind you. I go out with friends and family and go to movies, malls, parks, etc from time to time, but the vast majority of my free time is spent at home. Mainly on TV/Movies and Video Games. I find them relaxing, and I enjoy them. I say this here mainly so if you are (still) interested, that you have the understanding that whether single, or in a relationship, my preference is, and probably always will be, to stay at home and do something relaxing rather than go out and be "active".
I know most people hear that and think "lazy" and who knows, maybe by society's standard that's correct, but I don't consider myself lazy. All my life I've dreamt of building my own MMORPG video game. Well I've finally gotten to the point in my life where I feel confident enough in my abilities to make that happen. So I've been spending a lot of time planning, designing, architecturing, and tediously programming to keep that dream moving. Will it ever be finished? Make money? Who knows. Who cares lol I don't consider myself lazy because my preference in activities happens to be an array of things that are done from home. If there's something I want to do: I. fucking. Do. It. And that's why I don't consider myself lazy ;)
