People have a tendency to want to categorize, and I feel that trying to describe who I am as a person in a couple of sentences places me in a tidy box that can't possibly encompass all that I am. I strive not to view people as an amalgamation of a few things (i.e. their job; their age; their nationality). I don't think of myself as perfection, but I try to do and be my best. Im down to earth, and realistic. I hate the "Burbs". . .might be nice for some, but not for me. I want my life to always feel like an adventure, and a constant learning experience. I like cooking . . .I like food (anything flaky / "puff-like" and Im in heaven). I like to go for long runs. . I love parks; hiking in the woods, and the back-country in general. I like learning . . .just have problems retaining :) I tend to like a confident man . . .a bit chatty. . .someone who likes to laugh. . . adventurous . . . someone who marches to the beat of his own drum.
