Anyway, enough of that. I'm highly educated, though mostly "self taught". I have/do read an exorbitant amount. I've been lucky enough to have been able to travel the world, extensively and have lived in 5 different countries and on both coasts of the United States I think we should (as a society) insist that everyone travel when they're young, so they can see how bad/good the world can be. In my opinion and experience, traveling (and exposure to different cultures/lifestyles, especially poverty/war) is a necessary component to a well rounded education, there are distinct and perceivable differences between people who have and have not traveled.
I love the outdoors, I love rainy, foggy weather (call me crazy.) I love to laugh. I love a good cup of coffee in the evening and good beer in the morning (especially in the shower!) I have high aspirations and goals for my life. I think money IS important, anyone who says money doesn't equal happiness simply hasn't ever had enough money. Having said that, I realize money is only a part of the equation when it comes to happiness.
I have been accused of being a bit of an Alpha male. However, I am also respectful, considerate, gentle (most of the time) and kind. If you treat me well, I will do the same. If you treat me poorly, I will still be kind and respectful, though I won't spend any time with you if I can help it. If you waste my time, are unkind, malicious, vindictive, selfish, small minded/bigoted, a gossip, cruel to animals or if you hate your father/mother, we won't get along very well.
