In relationships - both friendly and romantic - I often pair well with someone who is quieter, more observant and perhaps a bit shy. I think shy, observant people are fascinating. If you're an ENFP or an INFP, let's chat!
Short men in a well-known book
Work alone but sleep in packs.
Each man lives a brief, bright life.
Each head scrapes a scratchy back.
Looks without seeing and speaks without sound.
Stares straight at me from impossible ground.
An uncanny mimic with ease unrehearsed
Except that to me he appears in reverse.
Both riddles have answers which are common everyday objects or concepts. (Answers at the bottom)
I don't read novels as much as I used to, but when I do it's usually escapism: fantasy, science fiction and young adult fiction are my favorites.
I also read magazines and newspapers. I read the New York Times daily and also like The Economist, New York Magazine and the Bloomberg Business.
I don’t own a television, but I do consume some series all at once on DVD or Netflix: Dr. Who, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica GoT, MST3K, etc.
I'm one-month into doing 100 burpees and a 2000 meter row every week day (weekends are for muscle healing). Initially it seemed impossible. But now I find myself surprisingly less-winded and less tired at the end of every work out. I love that sense that almost anything can be accomplished by steady, consistent effort.
The other day a woman chatted-me-up and asked if I liked piña coladas and getting caught in the rain. I told her that I neither liked sugary drinks or being caught out without an umbrella. She thought this was hilarious. I think she may have been mentally ill.
