Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not your typical okcupid guy. I figured out at a young age my
perception of happiness and satisfaction is the root of how I feel
so instead of chasing the extremes I found how to appreciate and be
satisfied by a simple path. It's likely that I reach the same level
of satisfaction with repairing a wall that your ex felt riding a
dirtbike through the woods. Not to say I don't like riding
dirtbikes, it's just the need isn't there in order to feel okay
with life. I'm very much content, but I still humor my desire to
have a really cool, smart, and equally chill beauty in my life.
I am nonchalant and silly most of the time. I identify with Taoism,
and subsequently Buddhism, because it allows me to overcome (or
more or less disregard) the pressures I experience, and as such I
try to stay centered, aware, and present here and now. Why? To
smile in simple amusement at whatever that happens!
"The universe isn't unhappy, it's simply in a state that is subject
to constant change. Our suffering is only in that we try and create
permanence in an ever-changing reality that has none."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
-Working doing business analysis, systems design and development,
and writing code 50+ hours a week (if I can).
-Consuming way too much caffeine.
-Renovating my house
-Waking up at 4:30am and typically getting tired by 9:30pm but
still staying up later than I should
-Autodidacticism - lately learning JAVA/finding new ways to enthuse
Mentally, on a day to day, I'm just being and working towards
contentedness. When you love what you're doing while you do it, the
end product just makes itself. This goes for work, life, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing poetry, cooking, appreciating people, remembering dumb
facts from the internet, repeating said dumb facts from the
internet, process improvement, being a smart-ass in order to remind
people that anything we have to do is something we GET to do...

Ordered extra spicy wings at Hot Rods and when I leaned over to

of joy followed shortly thereafter.
