Dude just gets a little lonesome.
Work is not my main priority. It's important that I have time for my own projects. In spite of this, I have two jobs that I enjoy and am passionate about. I work at a non-for-profit, dealing with food security; helping people meet emergency food needs with dignified, respectful services, all centered around healthy food. This summer I've also started working as a Green Roof Coordinator in the east end of the city.
I've experienced the wonders of WOOFing, and have hopes of doing more of it somewhere along the line. Growing food gives me mucho satisfaction. Life makes a little more sense when you have a garden. Eventually, I could see myself buying some land, and ditching city life.
Yoga plays a huge influence on how I live day to day. It has a tremendous impact on my physical, and mental well-being. At any given time, no matter how shitty I might feel, an hour of yoga will bring me right back to the top. Ganja also helps.
I'm well travelled, and will travel again, however I've been stagnant for the last year and a bit. l enjoy the feeling of getting lost. Living like a vegabond can be very liberating, but it takes a toll on you after a while. Creating a life in Toronto has been good for Old Duder.
I've had my share of drinking and debauchery throughout the years, and although I enjoyed the ride, I decided it was my time to get off. Since giving up drinking, my quality of life has gone up significantly. I've replaced hangovers with the gym and yoga. I can still enjoy a night out, and I'm not a buzz-kill. Going to concerts is something I do frequently... However, I'm more inclined to smoke weed and watch a movie.
...or my smile. I'm always smiling. Usually because I'm pretty baked.

I've become a morning person, so I'm not staying out super late these days.
I'm non judgemental, and very easy going. Step right up, and win a prize.
