My self-summary
I'm an odd mixture of things; I am a bodybuilder though I smoke, and drink. I like red wine with gourmet food, but like the burn of cheap whiskey, and can be a bit messy. I love high literature, though I love cheap crime, sci-fi pulp novels from the fifties, sixties, seventies. i think Eastern Europeans film directors, authoers , and artist understand the human condition the most. I like to dance, though I just do it to be silly. I love art-house cinema, yet also love genre films from across the world. I enjoy dive bars, but love attending art exhibits, and coffee houses. I enjoy city life, yet like to take respite in nature.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently am writing graphic novels that are unpublished, signing up to get certificate to be a personal trainer. I'm working on individuating myself to be the person I want to be. I recently just returned from visiting Los Angeles, and have been infected with wonderlust. Planning oon visiting Portland, Oregon in the spring. Enjoying life over all.
