My self-summary
I have to admit that this is the first time I've ever filled out an online profile, so I'm not really sure what to say here. I feel like I need to be witty and charming, introspective yet humorous, engaging yet mysterious. So far I'm coming up blank. I'm thinking that's not a good start.

I say I'm from Florida, because that's where my dad retired from the Air Force, and I essentially lived there most of my life. I also spent a good chunk of time in Oregon before moving to Arizona, then back to Florida.

I'm a single dad of a 19 yr old boy with a warped sense of humor who has been my primary focus for awhile. He sometimes asks why I don't date or have a girlfriend. I don't really have an answer for him, because it kind of all boiled down to being focused on him.

I tend to have a pretty laid back personality and most things don't ruffle me. I don't know if it's because I have a positive personality or not, but I always believe things will work out for the best.

On the other hand, when I'm interested in something, I can be very intense about it. I'll read everything I can about the subject and research it up and down. Whether that's a good thing or bad, I don't know, but passion for what interests you can't be all bad, can it?
What I’m doing with my life
I'll let you know when I figure it out.

I worked as a strength coach and group fitness instructor for more than a decade, but a couple of years ago I decided to make a change. So far, so good. We'll see what comes next.

If it were possible, I'd love to do something in the medical field. I'd love to go back to school for nursing, but not sure how I could go to school full time and make enough money to support myself, too.
I’m really good at
procrastinating. Then getting everything done on time in a chaotic, manic flurry of activity. Honestly, it's probably one of my worst traits.... but I'm really really good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmmm.... probably that I'm kinda quiet to begin with. I really don't know how to answer this, because nobody has ever told me what they noticed, other than saying something like, "When I first met you, I thought you were a very serious person." And it always comes back to the fact that I'm pretty reserved when I don't know someone well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I used to read voraciously, but I can't remember the last book I read for pleasure. Probably the Game of Thrones series.

Movies: I'm a guy, so I like the usual guy fare with explosions and ninjas and zombies, and exploding ninja zombies. But I also love movies that go past basic entertainment, challenge me, and make me feel something. I love movies that don't necessarily end how you want them to, but end in the way they need to end. Does that make sense?

Shows: There are some good TV shows out there, if you look hard enough. I've kind of turned into a Netflix and Hulu junkie. I actually don't have cable TV. I just find things to watch on streaming services.

Music: I like a wide range of music. There are over 500 albums on my iPod, and they cover a wide range of tastes. Although, since I've been teaching group classes, it seems that the only thing I listen to is stuff to prepare for class.

Food: People think that since I was a trainer and into fitness that I must be a nutritional monk. Not so. Life is too short to only eat chicken breast and broccoli. I think my favorite food is pizza, followed by sushi.

Alcohol: I thought I'd add my own category here. I mainly like beer. The usual favorite is Fat Tire, and I'm so glad they finally got it here in Florida! I also enjoy good rum and I loooove tequila.

Right now, I'm spending a lot of time thinking about how to answer this question.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's private for a reason, right?
