I'm what others may call 'different' but have been assured by mental health professionals that I am merely 'special'. OK, not really. I'm probably just eccentric.
I play American Football which takes up quite a bit of time, as I haven't been graced with innate overwhelming athleticism - so I have to go to the gym fairly frequently to run on the spot and repeatedly pick up heavy things before putting them down again. Unfortunately, I dislike most of the other people in the gym, so this only adds to the broadly masochistic experience.
I have a bit of an obsession with finding things out, but suspect that if I didn't have internet access I wouldn't be able to find things out using more traditional methods (such as a library). It's a bit unsettling because it means that I'm kind of Google's plaything. At least my main source of knowledge isn't Fox News, i guess. I have been told by some that this is a bit geeky, but there it is.
i'd like to engage in a boxing match within a year - it's for no purpose other than to appreciate being in an enclosed area with someone whose sole motivation is to hurt and survive me. [edit: recovering from an injury - this is on the back burner for a while]
Some other dull, tedious tidbits about me;
I am of Turkish origin
I have broken 13 bones in my time [update: now on 14![further update: 15!
I would like to be more visually creative than I have been thus far [edit: i spend a lot of time and energy on photography, so i've addressed this]
I feel that writing exclusively about myself is inherently immodest, even if that is the entire purpose of a self-summary.
