Where were you born?
Where is your home?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change."
-Richard Bach "Illusions, The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah"
I got out of the Navy recently after being a Electronics Technician (Nuclear) for 6 years and returned to Huntsville to go back to school and finish my degree. I love hanging out with friends, going to movies, having a drink or two, or just relaxing. I just try to make the most out of whatever I am doing. I'm pretty laid back, shy at first but once I get to know people I'll make an idiot out of myself because it's fun.
Now I'm back in school trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with my life. I've always enjoyed learning, but once I learn enough about something I get bored or disinterested. If it's not a challenge it's not fun and it's something I have to overcome if I'm going to make it through school. On my way to being a Jack Of All Trades Master Of None Sort Of Deal whether I like it or not.
Favorite philosopher is one who may not of ever really been a philosopher (so if you know anything about philosophy you'll know I mean Socrates). Why? Because I just find it funny to read about Socrates, because really he was just an ass to a lot of people (which is probably what got him killed... he was not one to make friends).
Why do I like Civil Engineering? I want to get in to Environmental Engineering. I don't know why exactly, I just like the idea of it. Maybe I will suck at it, maybe I won't. So far I'm enjoying what I'm learning, and it's not Nuclear Engineering (which the Navy taught me that I don't want to do).
Some more stuff: I wish that I took more pictures but I have lost the last 3 cameras I have had for various reasons (the ocean claimed 2 of them...). I'm actually typing this up on my macbook pro right now. :) I just got a mac about 8 months ago and I'm still learning how to use it but I love it so far. I used to be a huge bowling freak and I'm actually trying to get back into it. My best score when I was younger was a 277, but I'm far from being that good anymore. Maybe with some practice I will get there though. I love playing any sport really though, even if I have never played it before. I'm taking up tennis with a friend now that I'm back on dry land. I love to talk and joke around and I'm a goofball by nature.
I just started going back to school this Fall on the government's dime... Gotta get something out of my 6 years in the service that I'll never get back. Heh. I had a lot of good times though... and some not so good times...
Also currently working as a Genius at Apple (yes that's my job title...).
Recently I've been taking lessons for swing dancing and am hoping to branch out and learn some ballroom dancing too.
