Hi, I'm Ryan.
I am a gymrat, a yogi, a student for life, a creative, a game designer, a green thumb, a leader, a social butterfly, a traveler, and a supporter of the oxford comma.
Diving into my hobbies and personal education. Investing in Ryan, Inc.
Well traveled and looking to continue. Continuing to fly around the country/world. I think I'm at 15/50 States, but I hit all of the 'hard' ones.
Appreciation Beauty and Excellence - aka I nature, flowers, and people who are good at their job.
Honesty - I can smell deception a mile away, it's a smelly smell that smells...smelly.
Hope - Today is full of opportunity!
Creativity - Also strange ways to think about things. I effectively make $57 an hour making myself a sandwich. The hours suck with that job though, it's only 5 minutes a day.
Gratitude - Thanks parents! Thanks world for letting me hangout here! Thanks entire history of humanity that made it possible for me to view cat picture on the toilet, you're the best.
Sounds on target to me.

People: I love meeting new people. I can be a bit of a social butterfly and I love it. Not always a dominant aspect of my personality, but one of my favorite.
Balance: All things in moderation, even moderation.
Nature: Outdoors, hiking, fresh air, animals, ect. I will definitely stop to smell the roses :)
Jungian archetypes has grasped my attention. Wild stuff. What a cool way to view the world. Of course we have certain patterns of thought that arise outside our conscious thought. We are built on a biologically platform that's been developed over hundreds of millions of years.
Are looking for a peer in a partner. Eventually leading into something worth a lifelong investment.
