About Me

CURRENT MISSION

its cliche but to enjoy life, share new experiences, and discover things i don't know, like sea horses arn't mythical creatures, much to my amazement :D

ABOUT ME

Tom is courious about everything and everyone, loves to travel, study and has a deep interest in meditation although he dosen't have the balls to become a monk.... Yet ;D He is relaxed, easy going and looking for the next adventure. Studied philosophy for one year which was highly interesting for him, now taking part in a degree in counselling which he finds enjoyable and challenging. when at home he likes to try new activites currently learning the De,jembe drum and west african dancing, He has a desrie to learn to do a backflip so inquries are being made in to gymnastic classes and some form of martial art, Tom would also like to master another language. The long term goal is to aquire enough skills to travel and work where ever Tom stops to be, in other words, to be free as one can be free.

PHILOSOPHY

interested in Buddhist and Existential philosophy mixed with practical application. respect and understanding to fellows and ambitious positive progression to all from moment to moment as close to this as possible, no body is perfect, you can only try.
