Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My first flip response was fairly easy to write. Now I'm investing
more effort in this process and it isn't as easy when it
I want to have fun and be happy. That means being pretty active,
biking, sports etc. Being happy also means there has to be meaning
to how I live. You know, that 'deeper' meaning and all that. The
whole 'making the world a better place' thing is important to me. I
used to run service related non-profits and the sense of
satisfaction from that was pretty big. The holier than thou
judgemental folks were pretty annoying lol.
I generally take a philosophical view of things. Thus many of the
questions don't have straightforward answers for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I sail for a living. It is usually as fun as it sounds. The rest of
the time I'm trying to get people to pay me to take them sailing
and trying to make my dog happy.
Generally trying to make things 'better' in kind of a broad sense.
I do yoga, try to pick up litter, conserve water, that kind of
Right now I'm 'searching' more than usual. I miss the mountains and
being in the woods but not to uproot by myself and move to the
mountains. I'm not a hermit though I did spend a winter in a cabin
in the mountains of Maine. Yes, it was cold.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things - mostly things that are on the 'practical' side.
Sailing of course but I'm good with my hands as far as fixing
things and typing and those sorts of skills.
Organizing (not that I do it a lot...), figuring things out and
ways to get to things done when they seem impossible.
I'm sort of a jack of all trades and master of none - except
sailing. Sailing I'm really good at and I practice all the time.
Pretty much anything I spend time on I get good at - playing
squash, writing, yoga....

This is too broad to have much meaning. I like to read but lately
I'm watching more movies. I don't watch or own a television though
I do download things. Recently I've been watching Archer and the
first season of My Name is Earl. I like that he is trying to be a
good guy. It's endearing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Generally if I feel like I really need something I try to get it
and then try to learn how to live without it. Kind of annoying
But, day to day I really depend on my:

Oldest Sister (I'm almost sure my other sisters won't see

I'm really looking for someone active - who takes the stairs and
rides a bike. I'd rather be outside or at least not in florescent
