I have three kids and the empty-nest situation has partially and successfully occurred. I really enjoy being a parent, coaching and inspiring, and there to provide whatever helpful insights I may have. My daughter and oldest son attend WWU in Bellingham, WA. My youngest son, an International Baccalaureate program high school sophomore, lives with me half time. I enjoy kids and the pell-mell artistic chaos that occurs every other week as hordes of my kids’ friends descend on my house to play board games, roll-playing, and watch the latest viral YouTube videos and anime series.
I require and get 8 1/2 hours of sleep a night. I can easily focus on something even when the environment is noisy. Although I'm creative and intuitive with good warm emotions, I can also be highly analytical when needed. I'm on the pragmatist/optimistic side of the spectrum. I am very curious and I'm an excellent listener.
On the other side of the equation, I don't do drugs, I don't do any big pharma, I have no health issues, and I don't like big drama (although I can effectively deal with it when I need to). I don't get along well with people that have ADD/ADHD beyond acquaintance. Also, big or numerous tattoos now scare me just like those with crazy fiery tempers do. However, I do like to see passion, excitement, and genuine happiness in others.
