People who know me would say that I'm an honest, generous, caring and quick-witted guy. I love to make people laugh; even a chuckle or a snicker is fine with me. 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 sons, both are grown. I have one grandson.
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 and that change has been good (health) but 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've been running and trying to eat right, so my weight is coming down, and I'm feeling better all the time.
I do actually like my job, most of the time, well... actually some of the time, ok, ok... 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:
Photography - I'm relatively new at this so it's still a learning process, but I do like it.
The Beach – 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 area teams... Redskins, Capitals, Wizards, Nationals.
Cookouts - I like trying to cook anything on the grill.
Trying new restaurants - I like to experience new atmospheres.
Netflixing or Huluing with my significant other and sharing some popcorn with her. All I need now is to find her.
Bowling, Movies, Mountains, Sunrises, Sunsets, the outdoors, trying new things, Music, Drums, singing (but you better run if I start up.)
