I'm outgoing, but often a solo traveler, live lived alone, self sufficient, and independent. I enjoy my own company, but relish social interaction too. I've always been a bit different, seen as an interloper unconvinced of the merits of conforming to group norms and conventions. I suppose it happens when you are always the new kid. I attended three high schools in 4 years. We moved a lot., mostly to small towns. Might be why I prefer bigger cities now. I have broad musical tastes, an eclectic and far flung group of friends, and love a good adventure or just chilling at the beach. I get along well with most people, even the ones I don't really like. Things you learn being the new guy all the time. I greatly value the friends I can still keep in touch with, especially the kind where it feels like we just talked yesterday even if we haven't.
I spent almost 2 years working, traveling, and living abroad. I have learned there are very different ways of seeing the world without needing to judge them. I seem to make a few close friends in each place I live.
I'm good at fixing most anything: carpentry, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, computers, scientific instruments, star-drive on your space ship.

The Information Age should be called the Questionable Information Age. I am increasingly disturbed by the consequences of misinformed groups who believe in their cause, but are ill equipped, ill informed, sure that what they are doing is the "right thing", but all the while actually setting humanity and the world back, putting us decades behind where we could be. This is to say nothing of the willfully ignorant. That's not what I mean here. I'm concerned with those who act out of a longing to do good, but actually cause harm because they lack real knowledge, are misguided, who no longer to question their thinking because the internet provides a community of like minded people to reinforce their beliefs. Particularly disturbing to me is my own error. I have, on occasion, fallen into this pattern and acted on my own faulty convictions. Realizing this was sobering for me, as well as disheartening because I see it in so many others. Our actions can have very real negative impacts,. At the very least it's time lost fighting shadows that could have been better spent.
