I asked some friends to give me an idea of how they view me. Some gave me one word adjectives and some gave me paragraphs.
-Has a lot of empathy
-A great friend
-He knows what he wants and is willing to work for it
-A smart, kind guy who will help you out at the drop of a hat. He can fix anything in your house and then turn around and make great crepes. He isn't judgmental and is kind to others, not just those he knows.
-He is kind of like Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation
-A true friend
-Good in an emergency
-An amazing guy. Even more amazing is that he is single. He listens, doesn't talk too much, fixes things, can move stuff, and he cooks!
Friends are so great. Of course if they didn't think I was a good person they probably wouldn't be friends with me, so they are probably a little biased.
My self description is that I am:
-Can I say I'm smart/intelligent without sounding like I'm really into myself?
-Inquisitive (I really like learning about many different things)
-Loyal (to a fault, at times)
-Artistic (I like being creative)
-Creative (creativity is great for the brain)
-I like to think I'm funny. I can get a classroom of students laughing.
I'm more of a country guy than city.
I clean up alright, but I really prefer to be wearing shorts/jeans and a t-shirt.
I really don't know much about pop culture.
I don't know the lyrics to many songs, and I'm cool with that.
I prefer to be outside as opposed to being inside.
I haven't owned a tv in over six years, but I do occasionally watch a few shows on netflix.
My brothers are my best friends.
I try to feed my creative and artistic side while balancing it with my logical, scientific side. It works well for me.
I enjoy trying new activities which has led to many different outdoor activities. Anyone up for rock climbing, white water kayaking or rafting, hang gliding, mountain biking, scuba diving, snowboarding?
I try to do my part to save/sustain the earth.
I will go out of my way do anything for a friend.
I'm concerned about our current education system and where it is headed.
I know a lot of people, but only consider a handful of them to be real friends.
I see myself building a house out in the country in the future.
