My friends would say that I am honest, generous, caring and quick witted, but then, what do they know? They know a lot actually, honesty is very important to me. I love to make people laugh; even a chuckle or a snicker is ok. I like for people to feel comfortable around me because when they are comfortable I can be comfortable. It's hard for me to open up around new people so I will use humor to lighten the tension. Sometimes however, my wit is too quick and I end up with a foot in my mouth, but that usually makes everyone laugh as I hop around on one foot. I like to help my family and friends when needed, but they must be trying to help themselves too. I have two boys, both are grown. I have one grandson. 8)
I don't have a problem laughing at myself or with admitting when I'm wrong.
About fifteen years ago, I went from construction worker to computer programmer and the change has been good for the wallet. I also quit smoking about the same time, but that change has been good (health) and bad (weight), food tastes so much better so I've been trying all kinds of new foods. Now, I'm on a trek to change the weight problems. I do actually like my job, most of the time, well actually some of the time, well enough to continue going there on a regular basis anyway.
I also enjoy doing many other things which makes it hard to list them all here, but I'll try since I need 1000 words.
A few of my interests are:
Being with my significant other - Need I say more?
Photography - I'm relatively new at this so it's still a learning process, but I do like it.
Oceans – This is a power spot for me. The world disappears when I’m there. It’s just you and me and the ocean.
Writing - I like writing songs (or poems), would love to write a book about a childhood scary place.
Playing/watching sports - I love the Washington Redskins
Cookouts - I like trying to cook anything on the grill.
Trying new restaurants - I like to experience new atmospheres.
Netflixing with my significant other and sharing some popcorn with her. All I need now is to find the better half. 8)
Beaches, Bowling, Movies, Mountains, Wii, Sunrises, Sunsets, the outdoors, trying new things, Music, Drums, singing (but you better run if I start up.)
I'm really good at being honest and loyal.
Shows - Persons of Interest, Suits, Scorpion, etc..
Food - Pizza, Italian, Mexican, Pizza, Seafood, Chinese, Pizza...
Yeah, I like pizza. When I was a kid, my dad used to work the 3 to 11 shift. He would bring pizza home with him and wake me up to share with him. Of coarse I would fall asleep and wake up the next day with pizza sauce all over me. But I think pizza makes me feel good because of that.
2. My Sense of Humor (What keeps me sane)
3. My Past (I've learned a lot)
4. Pizza (see the pattern here?)
5. My Health (mental, physical)
6. My Family (Where I can truely be myself)
Second, if you wanna just say 'BOO!' I'm ok with that too.
Take a chance, we would have never gotten anywhere as a species if we weren't continually taking chances.
You should also message me if you are tired of waiting for me to message you.
BTW, my name is John.
