"If you start doing the things that you love and you start sharing the things that you love, sooner or later people start hiring you to do the things that you love... for your passion, for your vision, for what makes you unique.. and because you're the only person that can do whatever that thing is... because you love it so much."
Hey, I'm Neil. I'm a good guy... I see life with a philosopher's perspective... but I can get caught up in the anxiety of living like anyone else.
I live my life with a few simple truisms always in mind:
1) Nothing is strictly black or white... I see the world in many shades of grey, with each situation requiring careful consideration. My answer to almost any question is "It depends."
2) Happiness is more important than money... though, often, it can be hard to tell the difference.
3) Everything in life is a trade-off... I simply cannot have EVERYTHING I want and what I want always has a price.
4) What I think I want or need is not always what I actually want or need.
I was that guy in high school who was always super serious about everything... then I grew up and now I love to laugh! I love sarcasm... I love challenging people's ideas of etiquette and social mores by taking a mildly serious comment and blowing it way out of proportion to show silly it really is to be concerned with that. I love messing with words so one statement can be interpreted in different ways, usually with a sexual undertone.
I'm pretty passionate about photography, classical music, tea, and developing creative ideas. I love spending time with passionate, open minded people.
I don't get out too much, though I do love movies, funky jazz bars and taverns, book stores, concerts, walking around with friends, board game nights, parks, and generally whatever...
I'm not a born athlete, but I do enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking with my camera, etc. I want a boyfriend who drags me along on hikes or to the gym so our hanging out time could also be fun exercise time. I have recently arranged my life so that I'm in the gym at least 3 or 4 times per week.
If any of this resonates with you, get in touch.
