I have full conversations with my dog that are probably longer than the ones that I have with people, and I often criticize him for his lack of appreciation of the beauty of nature. He just wants to pee on everything.
I work very hard at being perfect in my career even if it’s an unrealistic goal, but sometimes I get a slow work day and spend hours on Wikipedia learning new things. What kind of things? All of the things! I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and if it’s a planetarium, museum, or zoo, you can bet that I’m more than willing to travel great distances to visit it.
Have you ever looked up at the moon or stars and just thought, “Wow”? Have you ever been caving because, “Why not crawl around underground in the dark”? Do you ever find yourself turning down a road simply because you’ve never driven down it before? If you answered yes, then we’ll probably get along swimmingly.
Outside of work, I hike a lot with my dog. We're trying to hike every trail in the CVNP by the end of the year.
