On the plus side, it guarantees I'd never get into drugs even if I got curious.
So that pretty much pins me into art or science. Well it took me a few years to realize I won't be the Justin Timberlake of jazz piano. Plus I'm a bit shy with the whole singing part, and who wants a cheesy smiling cocktail pianist?
Ok fine, I said to myself, I'll just keep that as a hobby and do real people work. So I got into medical software consulting, and holy crap did that start an adventure of a lifetime. It kicked off my 3 year California working getaway, which was an experience and a half. If you've never been to San Diego, San Fran, or driven north on PCH, you haven't seen paradise. I did more with my life in 3 years there than in the previous 20. Hiking, camping, discovering some ridiculous clubs and hookah lounges, lighting bonfires at the beach all night, road trips across the state, you name it. When I moved back I also realized Boston had more to offer than I gave it credit for, it you are willing to look, and learned that you get out of life exactly what you put into it!
Oh I totally forgot to list the billion artists and books and movies I'm supposed to list here. But I glaze over when I see that in profiles, so I don't want to subject anyone to it either.
I should mention that if you want some motivation to hit the gym, I've been pretty obsessive/commited about it lately, so I can pep talk for days!
