** must be able to have a conversation that may end with you not being right on occasion **
I was in the Army for 3 years from 2001-2004 and have attended too much college to not have a degree.. We'll just say I sorta lived a VanWilder life for a while...
My main focus(es) currently is/are to keep doing well in my field of work, continue to find great little secret paradises in Oregon with my dog and perhaps, you?, get back in "Army shape," QUIT SMOKING (again) FOR GOOD, (1/2015 UPDATE: I quit smoking and am on a pretty consistent workout schedule now) and find someone I can be serious about and with. I want and need someone willing to try new things, who's able to look past the shortcomings of people, who wants a family, and who is willing to grow and learn with someone else- not stuck in their own rut of everything they already "know." However, you must be able to learn from your past to work toward a brighter future! Everyone makes mistakes. It's how you move on from them that defines you.
Enjoying this very mild winter we're having by getting out and exploring as often as possible. I wish there was snow so I could snowboard more, but I'll take what I get and this isn't too bad. I could spend a lifetime seeking out new paradises around here and never find them all.
I'm working the traditional 9-5... really more like 7-4... and enjoy my free time by whatever is going on in that time.
A few new hobbies lately are my newly inherited fish tank, going to the shooting range and drawing more.
I <3 me some good sushi and good pizza, roasts, and anything/everything home-made!!! Especially by someone else... I also really enjoy cooking at am pretty good at it so, If you are too, that's a plus and I hope you don't mind a little culinary competition!
I like all music except country- usually- although some is growing on me. I really like hip-hop, rap, and all rock, alternative, Dubstep, classic rock ... Jay-Z to the Stones, Blink 182 to Slipknot, White Stripes to DMB, Skrillex to Kid Rock and PaperBoy to TOOL to Atmosphere to Five Finger Death Punch to Eminem and all in between play in my home and on the road at any given time. I have loved the shows I've been to in Portland! This section could probably go forever, but then that kinda takes away from the honeymoon of getting to know someone and finding more common interests...
1- Morgan (my doggy)
2- My Family and one of my own someday
3- Homemade food and beverage
4- Living to see the Lions win a super bowl
5- The ability to enjoy "The great outdoors" and all that it entails
