I am an artist and an educator; fortunate enough to be working steadily in both professions...among other things.
My humor is off-the-cuff, dry, and sometimes inappropriate; The word "sardonic" has been thrown in my direction.
...all I know is, people laugh (mostly).
You are likely trying to gesture in agreement right now but having difficulty doing so as your sides are, no-doubt hurting from all the laughter so far...my apologies; try to control yourself.
Health and fitness are important to me as I exercise almost daily: weights, cardio, kick-boxing as well as the occasional yoga class (I admit, I need to increase my practice).
As I’ve gotten older (wait, WAIT, may I use the word "mature"? yes..that sounds better), my idea of “fun” has shifted a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love going out and letting loose with the best of them; but I’ve learned, at least for me, it’s about WHO your with, not necessarily WHERE you are – you know? Subsequently, the idea of staying in, watching a movie and cooking, (a bit of a novice, but learning - I've acquired quite the "bachelor menu" i.e. my healthy pizza, healthy chili, etc.) or ordering in, can be just as awesome as going out and “getting crazy.”
"How is this guy still single???" you MUST be asking yourself (a little sarcasm there). Truth is, in addition to a massive career change in my late 20's (I used to work in politics in Washington, DC), I was also engaged for a time.
It is amazing to witness how certain life-events can alter one's path and priorities; choices become made for you, whether you like it or not. I've had my share of serious relationships but alas, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
We can talk more on that, if you like.
Maybe I’m a bit of dork (?). I think I may have heard that word thrown in my direction before….if "dork" means unconventional? then yes. And if "unconventional" means that I'd rather see a show or movie over a game, or go to a museum or listen to some jazz vs. a sports bar, then definitely.
I have embraced my dork-ness!
I've done a fair share of traveling (been to pretty much every state in the US, some of Europe, Canada and Mexico), mostly for school or work. However, I haven't had a "real vacation" in quite a long time. I'd like to travel more...there's so much to see out there that I just haven't allowed myself to do it. I've been catering this fantasy of a 3-4 week EuroRail trip throughout Europe. "Next summer," I keep saying to myself. Maybe I'm holding off, secretly waiting to go with someone....who knows?
