Living in a college town keeps me young but it makes me feel old. I thirst for knowledge. I love to travel every chance I get/ When financially possibly, go to the airport and buy a flight to a random city for a few days. During a vacation, I will spend all day at history museums or something "equally boring" by most people's standards. At night I will go to a random dive bar near my hotel, introduce myself and get to know a few local people. I like meeting people, swapping stories and having a good laugh with anyone.
If nothing else, I am original. I can lock myself in a library and read for a full weekend or go to my river in a speedo and be goofy. Wherever I end up between the extremes, I will have fun. Just because I can be goofy and crazy does not mean it affects my goals. I am very driven and competitive but I try to keep everything in perspective. Work hard, play harder and not take life to serious. I believe in driving hard and getting ahead so I can enjoy myself. It may be because I am easy going and enjoy my beautiful ride.
Random facts about me...
I am typing this on my iPhone and I have a feeling it will be filled with grammatical errors and fragments, because I can't see more than a few words at a time.
I spent 5 years active duty in the Navy, mostly navigating a submarine.
I spent 3 years on the Navy Reserves working with intel and anti-submarine searches.

I can be the most serious person in the room or the most humorous.
I have a French bulldog that is allergic to everything.
I am an extremely unhealthy eater. I live to eat not the other way around.
I grow my hair/beard/mustache randomly, get bored of a style and then cut it off. CURRENTLY- LONG HAIR AND SCRUFFY BEARD
I am a Houston fan for almost all major sports. So that means right now, I don't want to talk sports.
I am the most sarcastic person in the world.
If you can't hold a serious conversation or know anything going on in the world around you, I will get bored. If you aren't fluent in sarcasm, you will hate me.
If you can talk about philosophy, theology, politics, history, or science let's grab a beer or coffee. I believe firmly in growing. I like to hear other opinions and experiences. I may not agree, but I can disagree respectfully. Intellectual stimulation never hurt anyone.
