...that's right...renaissance man (sarcasm there...are you laughing yet?).
Health and fitness are important to me as I exercise regularly: weights, cardio, kick-boxing as well as the occasional yoga class (making efforts to "find my practice" again).
As I’ve gotten older
(hold on!... may I use the words "more mature" please?
AH, yes...that sounds better... Thank you),
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 you're 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 my menu is growing - i.e. my healthy pizza, healthy chili, stir-fry, etc.) or ordering in, can be just as awesome as going out and getting crazy.
"OMG! How is this guy still single?!?!?" you MUST be asking yourself (there's that sarcasm again...are you laughing again?).
Truth is, in addition to the aforementioned career change, late in my 20's (I used to work as a registered lobbyist in Washington, DC), I was engaged for some time coming out of grad school.
Yes, I've had my share of serious relationships (note the aforementioned engagement) but alas,
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
We can talk more on that, if you like. The point is, I'm still looking, and very open to finding someone/something significant.
Maybe I’m a bit of dork...(?)
….if "dork" means unconventional? then yes. And if "unconventional" means that I'd rather see a show or movie over a sporting event, or go to a museum or listen to live jazz vs. staring at 20 HDTV's at 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 (though... I did treat myself to a couple of days in the Florida Keys while down there last fall for a gig...that was quite nice!).
I'd certainly like to travel more...there's so much to see out there, I wish I would allow myself to do it.
I've been catering this fantasy of a several week EuroRail trip throughout Europe (duh!!! - where else could someone take a EuroRail trip? Ha! - are you laughing again?).
"Next summer," I keep saying to myself. Maybe I'm holding off..?
secretly waiting to go WITH someone....?
