As times have changed, so must I. For a year, I have been a man in transition. Overcoming serious health issues provides perspective and will change a man. I guess I could sum up my new approach to life as focusing more upon what is real and meaningful.
Today I am focusing more upon nature, down-to-Earth pursuits, and far less upon the glitter storm of social parties. I hope to create and nurture more meaningful friendships/relationships, while allowing the hundreds of acquaintances to forget me.
I also seek to drastically reduce my time spent online, and more time on physical, real world pursuits and face-to-face interaction. Facebook and Okcupid will simply be tools I use to setup face-to-face connection, not a replacement for it.
If any of this really resonates with you, maybe you should contact me.
I take more and more pride in being different. Much of the time, I look at the popular trends in society and choose to take a different path. Our society promotes greed, ignorance, rudeness, assumptions and violence. In response I gave away more than half of my stuff, stopped watching TV, embraced being empathetic and polite, and try to avoid all forms of violent media/entertainment.
As for work, I have been an educator for 16 years, and currently develop education focused upon patient safety and healthcare worker safety. Believing in what I do (and the organization I work for) is very important to me.

Otherwise, I watch very little TV because I find most shows to be increasingly violent, morbid, spreading fear or just annoying in how people communicate. I just don't agree with most of the messages our society bombards us with.
