About Me

CURRENT MISSION

spreading good juju to all those i encounter

ABOUT ME

I love to learn, although I'm damned with the memory of an emu (I read somewhere that everyday is a new day for an emu...) At least, I feel like I bring a refreshing breath of energy to each and every day. I really love to surround myself with people that can teach me new things and open my eyes to a perspective that I may have never known otherwise. I'm almost always up for a good party. I can go out all night dancing (not well, mind you) or just stay in and have a few drinks with friends. I usually don't watch tv. I haven't had cable in years and I'd like to keep it that way. More time for books. I just finished reading Shantaram. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it. I'm not quite sure at this point what it is in life that I'm meant to do. Right now, I want to learn as much as I can, surround myself with positive and encouraging friends, and push myself to evolve as a human. Life's really short right? I want to be as happy as I possibly can be.

PHILOSOPHY

Fame or integrity: which is more important? Money or happiness: which is more valuable? Success or failure: which is more destructive? If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. -Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching (I LOVE this book!)
