I believe that the key to a person's happiness lies within. If you want to be happy, you need to do things that make you happy, and let go of those things that don't. So many of us hold onto to so much negativity. I smile at children, make small talk with strangers, and treat others the way I would hope they would treat me. Always offer a helping hand, and always willing to try something new.
Life should be building up a collection of experiences, be they amazing conversations, good meals, or adventures. My next big adventure is going to be skiing in Japan this winter.
When I'm being more typical, I spent a decent amount of time at the local rock climbing gym, or the local mountain bike trails, enjoy experimenting in the kitchen (much to the delight of those who are my guinea pigs), enjoy reading, fantasy and science fiction take precedence, and board gaming when it gets chillier out.
My co-worker told me I am president of the Nerd Club. He made me business cards, so it must be true. My nerd qualities, according to him? Well, I watch comic book movies. I play the occasional video game. I read. I ride a bicycle, drive stick, and ride a motorcycle. I hike, ski, and rock climb.
Pretty sure it helps that I have short fridays, a lot of holidays, and a job I love.
I like experiencing life through adventure.
Next Big Adventure: Sugarbush - Slide Brook Basin
Last Adventure: Japan.
My eyes. I enjoy photography, and while sure, I could live being blind, it would totally ruin one of my favorite hobbies.
A camera. That whole photography thing again. Plus, no souvenir better than a photo that only you have.
Good kitchen knives. I enjoy the making of food as much as the consuming of food.
A bicycle. I might not be married to my bicycle like many of the people on this site, but I thoroughly enjoy riding. It's not my commute. It's stress relief. It's fitness. It's the occasional ride to the store, or it's cross country over dirt trails and single track.
