I'm a network engineer at the employ of this great city. I really do love what I do and where I work, even if it makes me bury my nose into some profoundly archaic and nerdy texts in a lot of my spare time. I've also been known to not shut the hell up about it.
Since I spend my work days tied to a computer I try to get out, seeking new and exciting stimuli. This not limited to but including a brief canoeing voyage on the romantic Gowanus Canal, and long meanders through chinatown for unidentifiable foods. When it comes to vacation, my ideal beach trip is in Alaska or the South Pacific, not so much the caribbean or anything approaching all-inclusive. I'd generally prefer to be sleeping in a tent than a hotel. I recently returned from 3 weeks of mountain climbing and backpacking around Colorado and Utah.
I like to cook huge recipes of stuff to live on for the week and/or give to family and friends. At this very moment I am cooking a giant pan of kielbasi hash. Poland represent!
Some talking points about yours truly:
I am refreshingly or disconcertingly honest, depending on your vantage point.
I have assembled the greatest 80s playlist known to man.
I've also mapped all of the worthwhile coffee shops in Manhattan and surrounding.
I don't tie my shoes like most people. In fact I don't even know how to tie them "properly." I've made it this far. No, I don't want to learn now.
I was born with a defective or am perhaps missing my shamebone. I am essentially unable to be embarrassed. Please feel free to use this to your advantage in creative ways!
I am a bit disappointed I can't add Network Theory as an interest.
After years of being horrible about stretching, I've been getting into yoga lately. Standing straight legged on top of my fingers is my life's greatest accomplishment! Mom's real proud.
I figured out early on that for me, life is about the acquisition of happiness, not the almighty dollar. Not to suggest I'm broke, I just know what my priorities are. Do you fancy going on adventures?
Did you read this all this? You should get a gold star.
