That has been on my mind recently and it just goes to affirm for me that while the path I am on might not be where I intended, where I am is just fine and maybe just where I need to be right now. I remember an assignment in my Senior English class from High School. My teacher wanted us to write a letter to ourselves 5 years down the road. I am not sure if he intended for us to remind ourselves what our goals were or to show us how things change, but I enjoy exercises like that because I get climpses of how events have effected me and the man that I have become.
I am certainly not perfect, but I know who I am and despite having some thing that I know I need to work on, I like who I am and where my life has brought me to be.
I am weird, interesting, and honest
I do my best not to work on the weekends as I know I need time to recharge. Saturdays I usually leave time to hang out with my Nephew and my Sunday's are usually taken up serving at my church as part of the Worship and Media Arts Team. I sing as part of our Choir or fill my role as one of the Sound Techs for my church. Even if not serving that week I am most likely seen at church on Sunday as it has become an important part of my life.
I am a technical person and picking up new technology has always come fairly easy to me. I am a visual thinker, so I often translate what someone tells me in to images that I see in my mind's eye. I believe that this helps me to pick up on explainations from others fairly quickly. I may tend to be closed off about how I feel about things, but that is mainly because I don't want others to worry about my problems. On the other side of that coin I am usually pretty empathetic and can tell when others are feeling down or upset.
When asked (and sometimes when not) I will give my honest opinion about a situation. I try to see things from all angles and give and outside perspective. I have been told that I give good advice as a result of this, but that advice is usually what needs to be heard, not always what people want to hear.
I am all over the place with movies, but John Cusak and Jack Black movies work for me. That might explain why I like High Fidelity sooo much!
I listen to a little bit of everything except country. I run sound for my church and I find that I tend to prefer the up tempo stuff, but I am also particular about lyrics and I have a need to be able to discern a meaning from what I hear.
Living in San Diego I had come to really appreciate Mexican food but impossible to find since moving back to DC. Thankfully I am always down for a good burger, pizza, and being that I am Italian I love me some pasta and seafood.
The present. What am I doing with my life, could I be doing more?
The future. What next?
Thanks for your time and take care,
