Here's the fresh and new of it. In the midst of hot weather and rafting season of 2012, my boss decided to push a concrete wall over on top of me and broke my back. Honestly, I'm lucky to be alive, and not paralyzed, or brain dead, or several other horrible scenarios that are more likely than a broken back that had a full recovery diagnosis. As a result of that and the months of recovery time, I've had a few life changes. First off, **** that guy, I quit! And while I'm at it I decided to take the sign that I should leave construction, permanently. I am temporarily working graveyard at a lab, and from there I'm pursuing many options and hoping ONE of them pans out... I'm also finally serious about working out. I've been told by my neurologist and physical therapist that I HAVE to keep my core strong, for life, to avoid dehabilitating back issues later. And that they'll probably come anyway, but not as bad if I keep strong.
TL;DR- I broke my back, am changing careers, and am training for a triathalon several times a week.
if you needed that last line, the rest of my profile can be summed up as- I am intelligent, random and goofy, enjoy many physical activities such as bouldering and diving, dislike poor grammar, and it is to be assumed I'm amazing in bed.
I have a motorcycle, its a crotch rocket, not a Harley. I love my bike. (great random movie quote: "Its a motorcycle, not a bike. do you see me pedaling?") I'm just getting into bouldering, which is ~ rock climbing. I love camping, enjoy hikes (once you get me moving) LOVE nature (once you get me out there) I'm a Dive-master, so I can help instruct people in learning how to scuba dive. I love diving. I've been on a hiatus from diving longer than from sex, due (again) to the nature of my (soon to be) old job that sucked up both my nights and my weekends. I enjoy going out and sociallizing in a bar, playing pool, or if you feed me enough booze, dancing (or with even more, karaoke, but at that point someone else better be driving.) I also enjoy cuddling up on the couch and watching a movie. I am an excellent cook, and love making food for people. I'm one hell of a mix master, and have several drinks of my own creation in the books.
As with everyone, I do have my shortcomings. NEVER say irregardless in my presence. its not a damn word, and strangely enough probably one of my biggest pet peeves. weird, right? I have what might be labeled as an addiction: I like video games. not nearly as detrimental to my health as smoking, nor as costly as being a gambler or an alcoholic. its not a hardcore gamer thing, just...something I do to fill my time, when not reading. I CAN be pulled out of it. For those who understand, this did once mean WoW. I have been clean of that horrible addiction for 2 years, and have no desire to ever go back.
oh yes. and I need more pictures up, I know. the couple "sexy-man" pictures I have up are lovely, and represent a part of me, but I'm not stuck up. I just don't generally take photo's of myself, except when dressed up and drinking. I'll work on that.
depends on what the other's tastes and comfort levels are. I'm not opposed to anything, I've had first dates that included me making us dinner at both her house and mine- going out to a movie, resturant, microbrew, sushi or even a walk at waterfront are also viable options to start the morning/afternoon/evening date. I do my best to be open to all options. While I understand that a first date IS about first impressions, I don't believe you cannot have an amazing first date in an unusual first setting, such as a bowling alley.
