In the here and now, I would tend to argue that it's not the destination that matters, but the journey. Pursue experiences. Seek happiness. Better yourself. And above all, keep moving.
In my personal realm, I've managed to become a software engineer with a bachelor's of science in computer science. That's a pretty good start :)
-Speaking the English language
-Navigating the internet
-Buying shit I don't need (but that is REALLY cool!)
I'm pretty decent at:
-Playing the guitar
-Fire Spinning/Poi Spinning
I'm also working on having people notice that I always walk on rose petals and have doves flying from behind me as a blinding light from the heavens guides my path. It's not working out so well though.
Movies (Too many to mention, but here's a list anyway):
-The Lego Movie
-Back to the Future
-How To Train Your Dragon
-Run Lola Run
-Monty Python and the Holy Grail
-The Fifth Element
-Scott Pilgrim vs The World
-Pitch Perfect (assuming you've read this far, this is a guilty pleasure)
Shows (No particular order):
-The IT Crowd
Music: Rock, Pop, EDM... whatever. It really depends on what I'm in the mood for and what gets stuck in my head that week. Goldfish is probably my favorite band right now. Their new single is amazing.
Food: Sushi or steak. I could eat sushi all day. And cow is yummy. I'm a full-bred carnivore. Given the choice between a salad and meat, I pretty much pick the meat every time... RAWR!
Drink: I guess I'm working on being a pompous asshole because I'm a fan of Scotch, cognac, red wine, port, and craft beers. I swear it's not on purpose!
-Sunglasses (The sun! It burns!)
-Advil (I hate headaches)
-A good book
And just to switch things up, some things I COULD do without:
-Westboro Baptist Church
-People on their phones with their screens set to "brighter than the sun" during a movie
-Unicorns maybe? I've managed so far without one. Although it would be pretty epic to have a unicorn...
Sometimes I get stuck thinking about quantum mechanics or astronomical theories. (Really? Light behaves as both a particle AND a wave? And what happens to Schrodinger's cat?!)
Other times, I'm stuck thinking about internet memes e.g., funny cat pictures.
How different the experience on this site must be for people of the opposite gender.
My username has absolutely nothing to do with blazing it up. I just mashed two words together in a random and uninspired spurt because I really didn't think I'd keep this account. However, since I've started fire-spinning, it totally works.
Or if you want to challenge me to a duel, send a message.
If you require assistance on your quest for the Holy Grail, send a message.
And I guess if you can't stop hitting the "send message" button because you're twitching like a sugar junkie on a caffeine high, chances are you've already sent me 50 messages in the time it took you to read this sentence.
Proper grammar is encouraged :D
