Moving North (as in the Upper Peninsula)

I've recently decided that if I can sell my house, I'm going to move north to the UP to be closer to my father and his farm and take up farming (in addition to continuing to do Controls Engineering work). Life in a rustic/rural environment sorta comes with the package :)

Software developer/IT manager/Private pilot. Single, have a cat and a dog (pug), both named after NASA space programs....well the cat was first, named Apollo and after that it seemed like a good theme at the time...ya

Stereotypical Aquarian and professional introvert. Highly adept in technological, electrical and mechanical areas, less adept at complicated social situations (ones where jeans are considered underdressed).

Huge animal lover. On the list of overall "deal breakers", not liking animals would probably be right near the top. Besides its hard to NOT love an adorable pug or an older overweight but sweet cat.

I am somewhat health conscious about what I eat, but am not a vegetarian. Oh..and I drink coffee till late in the evening.

Somewhat of a tree-hugger. Actually more like a tree handshaker.

Oh..intelligence and command of the English language is utterly and completely sexy!

I also though do compose music. My compositions range from very somber classical styled pieces to techno/trance type stuff.

I think if I had to say it another way..I enjoy the tranquility and silence of my home or the woods and really am pretty good without having to have music.

I don't watch a lot of television. Some documentaries, science/history shows and interesting series like Game of Thrones, Lost, BSG, The Newsroom, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad

Bought a foreclosed house, have been working on it intermittently. Flooring is not done yet, so there are sections of bare plywood (wear slippers should "we" get that far). However, the house IS on a river, with a nice firepit and plenty of mosquitoes.

Oh, if you are familiar with MBTI personality types, I am an INTP

Very anti-drama, anti-conflict. Have relatively designed my current life to be as stress free and peaceful as possible.

I did quit smoking, but I do "vape" (which is an electronic cigarette type of nicotine "replacement")
What I’m doing with my life
I"m currently finishing up my commercial pilot studies and working on my house. I am not quite the worlds most interesting man.

As an aside, I do also perform locksmithing and piano tuning. Oh and computer repairs, machinery repairs etc.

I suspect if I take up shoe repair and candlestick making, I could do well in a small turn of the century village.

I'm struggling to have a greener thumb. The desire is there, the ability seems lacking. That and weeds..I fear weeds as 1/2 the time I'm not sure if it really IS a weed. If only they had barcodes, that would be cool.

I have taken to indoor gardening during the winter. The bay window in the kitchen looks like a jungle.

Oh..if anyone wants some basil..I have it coming out me ears.
I’m really good at
Fixing things and semi-pro napping. Seriously, being raised on a small farm in Ohio (sounds like a movie intro) leads one to develop skills at self sufficiency. Natural technology person, so am adept when it comes to things like that. Not bad at video games and composing music.

Oh..I completely forgot. I have been brewing my own beer now for at least a year or two. Have started growing my own hops recently also.

One of my favorite quotes - the philosophical ramblings of Walter White - "I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50-years I spent like that. Finding myself awake at three in the morning. But you know what? Ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine."
The six things I could never do without

High Speed Internet Access

My Pug Puppy (I tell her she's a puppy all the time, but I think she's 4 or 5 by now)
Peace/Nature
An incomplete list of 6 things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Peoples motivations/inner thoughts. Like..when you see someone do something that is simply intentionally rude/discourteous. That immediately sets me into the mood of wondering exactly what is going through their head.
