By Conservative I mean that I desire to conserve things which ought to be conserved. A particular Conservative vice is the desire to conserve things which ought not to be conserved. Wisdom and analysis is required to determine the difference.
I am a thinker; I spend most of my mental and conversational energy engaging with ideas rather than emotions. When I am emotionally engaged in something it's usually white hot, but it's rare. Most of the time I exist in state of mild amusement :)
I was rock climbing regularly for a couple years, and really enjoyed it, but it wasn't systematic enough for me to see the sort of progression in my fitness that I desire, so I started powerlifting a month ago (full body strength exercises). It's more fun than I expected, doesn't take as much time, and has given me more obvious progress. It may say "a little extra" on the side there, but I intend to change that to "athletic" within the next 6 months. (Edited 9/16/13)
My church is a recent plant in the heart of the city. I'm a vocalist on our worship team, which is weird because if you'd asked me two years ago if I ever thought I'd even go to a church with a worship band I would have probably laughed at you. Fortunately, we are making a concerted effort to make sure we are worship leaders, not worship performers. Congregational participation in worship is important to me.
I love the outdoors, but never seem to go camping or hiking unless someone else suggests it.
