I'm mostly very confident- It doesn't always show, but it's there. In some respects i am not so confident. I can be crazy sometimes- I have an artist’s mind- I am somewhat socially awkward and reserved. I wear really bold socks, my hair is usually pristine, I'm nit-picky and critical about certain things- well a lot of things. I am a perfectionist, but I know when to let things be. I am easily frustrated on the right days, can get a temper and can be as stubborn as they come. I usually admit when I'm wrong. I have incredible patience for meticulous tasks, but terrible impatience waiting on things.
I like working on/fixing all my own stuff and I enjoy spending time in the kitchen though I hate cooking for myself. I try to eat healthy and I pretty much prefer only non-gmo, chemical free, etc etc GOOD food. I have a lot of random knowledge- I've taught myself a lot of what I know and I am not afraid to jump right into something new.
I enjoy the outdoors- hiking, photographing nature and drawing, rockhounding, prospecting and studying local Geology. I have a lot of varying hobbies/interests but they don't get as much time as the one I'm trying to turn into a career- But they do influence and contribute to who I am an what I do.
I'm into music- I can't live without my music. I can't live without art, either. I am a natural artist- I have some training, but I know I am truly blessed with many talents. I like a lot of "old" stuff- Music, TV, movies, styles, cars, etc... and a lot of people think it's because I grew up listening to or watching it or around it- I didn't.
I befriend cats with ease, I write, I enjoy whiskey, good Belgian ales and fine cigars. I LOVE baseball, like traditional hot rods and vintage bicycles. I have a weakness for old Mustangs and long drives. I also enjoy cool weather, flannels, clouds, rain and storms!
I don't own a television... but if I did it'd probably be on one of two stations- MLB and Science Channel or similar. I used to watch mostly PBS and old shows like The Rebel, Gunsmoke and Bonanza. I also love The Twilight Zone, Outer Limits and Master Chef. But I don't watch a ton of TV shows. If I do, they're British- Top Gear, Scott & Bailey, etc. American television is largely just idiotic.
Music: I'm BIG into Nick Cave and his work, but my musical interests are wide. Some newer stuff, a lot of older stuff. Surf, rockabilly, some country, Apocalyptica, Rammstein, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Pearl Jam, Neil Young, Mark Lanegan, Joan Baez, Hendrix, The Band, Joplin, Norah Jones, Joe Bonamassa, classical, instrumental, blues and jazz... Too much to list really. I just like real, actual, GOOD music, and I am like a kid in a candy store when I find hidden gems of songs/artists I never new existed. No Emo, rap, lame-o pop or hipster junk. Yes, yes I know "good" is subjective, but....
Books: Art, firearms, history, gemstones, jewelry, geology, gemology... They all make good books. I enjoy a good fiction every once in a while too.
Food: I am in love with Mexican food. I cook it fairly well, too. But I just enjoy good food, all around. Hardly any fish though, definitely no sushi..
We all know it, we all wanna say it, but we only put up with all the dummies in this world because there are some good ones sprinkled in there too- you just have to find them.
