People love to make assumptions about me. I love to surprise them. I've worked very hard to become a person that I really like, and I don't fit into many stereotypes. I'm a fish swimming upstream. I'm a soul searcher who makes my own way in life and I value individualism and finding the truth out for myself. I'm the type that comes to the fork in the road, and might just sit down and have a picnic if I don't have anywhere to be. I smell the flowers, and I think about things that I don't need to think about. I see things most people don't see. Not in the schizophrenic way, haha! I just pick up on patterns and idiosyncrasies that most people don't realize they are ignoring. Patience is absolutely a virtue and the tortoise wins the race. The softest substance will eventually overcome the hardest, as my Tai Chi teacher explained to me. Life is about growth and change and beauty, you must be ready for it. I have had a lot of unique experiences, but I choose to learn and to be a positive person. They have given me a strength and insight that I am very thankful for. I'm open minded but logical. I just try to take life as it comes, and make a witty joke if I can.
I used to play a lot of video games, and party a lot but I barely do either anymore. I'm more focused on work now than I have ever been. I have lived a lot of different ways, and worked probably a hundred different jobs. I have been a model, a very well paid credit card marketer, a lumberjack (ok more like assistant park manager, but we liked to call ourselves lumberjacks), quality control inspector for a majority of the nation's cream corn supply, everything in a restaurant, metal recycling, demolition assistant, and successfully self-sustained unemployed by being a driver for hire, bargain hunter and reseller, running and promoting parties and music shows, etc. Not to mention countless other, far less interesting positions as a temporary worker when times were tough and I needed to get the bills paid. Now I have a decent setup at a job I enjoy and get paid pretty well for. I would like to make enough good investments that I don't have to "work" anymore, but just spend my time on whatever projects I want to be involved in, mostly music.
I read a decent amount, but usually more random articles about science or current events than books. I tend to accumulate a lot of random knowledge. I have read books before though.
I love food. I love to cook. I like Chinese, Italian, and Mexican and I like to try interesting unusual things too.
