My self-summary
I'm an adventurer, looking for treasure
What I’m doing with my life
I work, I lift, I read, I eat;
I wonder if that's enough...

Weight lifting/Exercise is an activity I'm passionate about. I love feeling my body getting stronger, But I'm not just another meathead. I was a dork long before I was weightlifting

One of my favorite things is to go out and do anything new and fun. Especially anything outdoors. New and fun things really gets me excited. Travel is another huge part of my life. Getting out and seeing new places is so refreshing.

I rarely turn down an invitation to go some place I've never been, or to do something I've never done. If exercise keeps the body young; then it's new experiences that keep the soul young.

I'm always trying to find something new to do. I really enjoy yoga and meditation classes, I go to those anywhere I can find them. I go hiking and exploring to as many of the parks in Missouri and Arkansas that I can.

Honestly though, a lot of my free time is spent alone at a restaurant with a meal getting cold in front of me, and a book in my hand.

I'm looking for new friends to go on coffee dates with, text buddies, or just someone to hang out, doing stuff with. I would love to find someone that considers a few hours at the gym a date. I'm genuinely interested in meeting people to see if we hit it off enough to hangout more.

Every minute, I'm reminded, I survived the last minute. I don't want to wait. I want to live! Not now, but, right now.
I’m really good at
Lets see; I love cooking, it is my art form and another thing Im passionate about. I totally get off on everything from meal planning, to shopping, execution and service. And then after taste tasting everything during 4 hours of prep and cooking, I can look at it and say "Isn't it beautiful...I'm not hungry"

I'm a total foodie, I love it when I taste a new flavor that I've never had before. I will talk about food and flavor... a lot

All though I love food and eating, I am a moderate eater. I don't diet but I am in control of what I eat. Health and Fitness is a priority for me (but who can resist Andys Frozen Custard once and a while)

I love laughing, and meeting, chatting with new people, I welcome conversations, new perspectives, and fresh ideas
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile; or that I'm super dynamic, and, not at all what they expect from the outside
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite foods are Asian and Italian, unfortunately you can't get the real thing here (fried chicken and a sugary sauce is not chinese, it's not even asian...it's chicken nuggets and dipping sauce over rice) There are a few places I know about that get pretty close to the real thing though. I can't resist a good Phở. Ever.

I love cheap dirty tacos.

I used to read more fiction, but these days there's a list of non fiction books Im trying to get thru (not counting tech books about data networking)

Recently finished books: From Dawn to Decadence: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life, 1500 to the Present by Jacques Barzun,The Record of Linji by Linji Yixuan

Working on: Summer reading list: The Analects by Confucius, Shōbōgenzō "Treasury of the True Dharma Eye" by Eihei Dogen

I will give honorable mentions to Think and Grow Rich, Psycho-Cybernetics,Tao Te Ching, A History of Western Philosophy, A Brave New World, 1984, The Icewind Dale Saga, Harry Potter, To Kill A Mockingbird, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, The Autobiography of Malcom X, The Great Gatsby, How to Win Friends and Influence People, The Alchemist, Green Eggs and Ham

Musically I let my activities dictate more than anything else; when I'm working out it's all metal and hardcore rap (Hammerfall, Pantera, DMX) when I'm at home its either pop/dance stuff (Nelly Furtado, Pink, Kelly Clarkson), latin club music (Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Shakira) or R&B/soul music (Tina Turner, James Brown, Al Green, Sade, Nina Simone) I also love 80's Synth (Perturbator, Garth Knight, Miami Nights) But I like everything generally, except pop country

The Wizard of Oz and Lawrence of Arabia are tied for my greatest movies of all time.
On the Waterfront, A Streetcar Named Desire, The Wild One (Brando's finest) are all number two on the list
The six things I could never do without
a computer
some weights
a baking sheet
some money
the four noble truths and the eightfold path
I spend a lot of time thinking about
finishing the task at hand before starting a new one

How shallow everything around me seems.
Seriously; if the extent of your interests are alcohol, television, eating garbage, filling your house and your life with stuff, we will never get along. If you don't support, radically support, LGBT, we will never get along.

Why Bakshi is better than Miyazaki

Am I the only one that uses the extra photo folder? (If you can see that please tell me, OKC how does it work)
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually I'm at home not doing anything. I've got a big day planned for Saturday and it starts early. But there's always next Saturday; so if you've got an idea for an adventure Friday night, let's do that
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an INTJ that works at being a EFSP;

**lvl 65 Cleric LFG_have epic_will travel**
(yeah that was me)

I live on fruit and vegetable party trays and, baked chicken from the deli counter

I was on /b/ a long time before you were

Im never sure if what I write translates to the way it sounds in my head and I hate that
You should message me if
Obviously if you would like to know more about me or you're interested in hooking up for something

You can explain this to me: All the influences of the world are entering you only through the instrument of the mind. If you can rise beyond the influence of your mind in full awareness, then you are naturally one with everything. The separation – you and me, time and space – has come only because of the mind. It is a bondage of the mind. If you drop the mind, you have dropped time and space. There is no such thing as this and that. There is no such thing as here and there. There is no such thing as now and then. Everything is here and now.

"We are such stuff
as dreams are made on; and our little life
is rounded with a sleep."
