About Me

CURRENT MISSION

see as much of the word and meet as many of its people as possible

ABOUT ME

Hey all.. My name is Mike. I have neglected this site for a while and want to dive right back in. I live in a very central location in manhattan near Union Square. I work in NYC as a fireman. I like to do anything as long as its something, i think it borders on ADD. I like to make lists... so here is one of things I like; the beach, the water, boats, fishing, baseball, football, golf (tho i suck at it), going to bars (to often i think) coffee, the NY times, i love my job, really long car rides to no where, car trips, good conversation with fun people over a pint of guinness....

meeting new people and learning new things is a passion...so feel free to drop me a line... if you like politics, even better, we can debate, if you can keep up

PHILOSOPHY

"The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them. Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal. Don't take it personally when they say "no" - they may not be smart enough to say "yes".

"life is a journey, not a destination... so spend like you don't need the money, love like you'll never get hurt and dance like no one is watching.."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Standing on a bridge over the River Seine in Paris for 2 hours in a thunder storm just to see the sunset break the clouds.

Making the mistake of feeling a herd of goats in Morrocco who then proceeded to follow me for hours hoping for more food.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love meeting people who have experienced life from a completely different perspective than myself... so we can compare notes...
