I can't fully or accurately portray what my friends think of me, and presuming that I know what people think gives me a bad taste in my mouth. I would prefer to focus on what I think of me, introspection and self-analysis is a huge part of my life as I try to keep myself in grounded in reality and remain humble.
If you want to know how I perceive myself I can say this: I strive to be dependable, to be helpful, and to be mentally and physically supportive of those around me that might need it. I'm always willing to shirk formal responsibility in favor of socialization.
For a long time I had been sedentary, a passive personality in life. But I'm working to branch out, to break out of my self-imposed metaphorical shackles of sloth.
People also tell me I'm funny, and I'm forced to think that they're right.
Like most sedentary people, I spent most of my free time adsorbed into my chair pounding fingers into my keyboard trying to extract some kind of meaning out of the computer-box.
While I have a lot of experience working with computers, developing web-related content, graphic design and motion graphics, I have always enjoyed working with my hands more. I have a real affinity for crafting and handiwork. The concept of furthering my education in that really appeals to me. I'm currently working towards an education in a variety of talents, such as: welding, book binding, and woodworking/carpentry to name a few.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
- Vacationing in Michigan on a lakefront, I woke up one morning to face a massive wall of fog over the lake. It obscured everything within 15 feet of me, and walking out onto a dock was a surreal experience of solitude and clarity. No horizon, no sky, just me, the dock I was sitting on, and a 30ft circumference of water.
- On a long driving expedition, we drove through a massive downpour of blinding rain on the highway. Wiper blades couldn't hold back the buckets of water splashing over the windshield. When the chaos settled, we were treated to a stunning array of low-flying clouds highlighted by the sunset in front of us. Clear and fluffy clouds of pink and gold glided past us at distinct depths and levels that parallaxed against each other.
