Ok now the to explain the Buddhist thing. I believe in their way of life, not so much the religion. I believe in kindness, compassion, harmony, but I'm well aware things don't always go that way. I've been a brawler of sorts but I never go out of my way for a fight, I'll only fight if something is worth defending.
I was trained as a chef and I love it... mostly. Co-worker/friends make it worthwhile but the hours I have are not the best.
Family heritage plays a bit in the things I do now and again. Such as the fact that I will sometimes wear a kilt when I go out to a bar. There's a fair bit of Irish and Scottish in me.
I am strong willed, adaptable, and surprisingly shy.
