Recently lost a lot of weight. Gained some of it back.
Recently had a minor professional upgrade at work. Not a dream job, but dramatically more satisfying than before.
Shaved my head for Halloween Costume 2014. Haven't had a haircut since.
I can be the Loner, the Sad Sack, and the Slow One. I am not good at: dealing with large crowds for long periods of time, lying to make someone feel better (honest to a fault), getting a good price when selling stuff, letting go of things that have hurt me, going from that point after small talk to making friends (I'm really good at small talk, though), knowing what people want without them telling me, and I truly can't ride a bike or drive stick or ice skate.
The second thing people notice about me is that I have a kind and generous spirit. I'll say this is a second thing consistently because my aforementioned persona can make me appear arrogant, and my dubious size and complexion can be intimidating. After two minutes asking me a question, however, most people figure out I'm a pushover/giver.
#1: My mind as it is without compromise. If I ever contracted a degenerative neurological pathology I am pretty sure my soul would lose its spark.
#2: My sense of purpose. I know it seems odd that someone seeking out their path in life even has "a sense of purpose." What I mean is that I am sustained by a drive to do. When told to "take it easy" I still search for ways to be useful and if denied that, I react VERY badly.
#3: Tools to accomplish objectives. I love getting things done and when I have more tools to make it easier or more efficient, I can accomplish more with less! Without the best tools, I make do. My hands and mind are the only requisite tools in a pinch. If I became vegetative without the ability to blink/communicate... Well, unlike the above I couldn't do anything about it, but I would certainly feel the lowest thing I'm capable of.
#4 and #5: Faith and Hope. I'm already a really quirky person. The only thing that keeps me from descending into the depths of a dark depression is the belief that things will eventually be better. Some rationalists don't believe in the value of the spirit, but I can't help but rely on it; if I were purely rational I would have little reason not to be in despair all the time.
#6: Her. (You) Yeah, totally corny because I'm out of other wonderful generalizations. Obviously humans can survive alone but surviving ain't living.
"No man is an island, entire of itself."
Also Faith. I found God by doubting Him, hating Him, losing Him, and coming back to Him. When I express that my faith is strong, I mean it is prison strong. I didn't grow up with friends or family keeping me strong in faith; I had the opposite, in fact. I tend to disagree with the more traditionally religious.
1. You're an interesting person wanting to connect with same.
2. You justify/qualify lots of your answers to okcupid match questions because you want to give a better picture of yourself.
3. You have exciting news about how I can make a million dollars with this one weird trick!
