A thin veneer of ironic detachment covers my sincere interest in the welfare of others. I care a fair amount, really, which can be a real burden, so I make fun of it all. What, it works.
Instinctively, the world is immensely serious to me... yet intellectually I'm the opposite, I don't take myself or life all that seriously; it's all like a fun little game. But life isn't necessarily that way for a lot of other people, and I DO take that seriously. I'd like us all to have the opportunity to not take life seriously. So I guess one of the few things I am serious about is making the world better. And having fun at the same time. I don't want to lose the game, after all.
Blurbs: Health and fitness are passions of mine. As are the outdoors, animals, and international affairs. I love roadtrips. I grew up in the countryside and the Midwest, and while I'm cosmopolitan, educated, and progressive in my perspectives, I'm sometimes surprised by my latent Midwest-y-ness.
No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Awesome. Hey, that wasn't so hard after all.
