I recently left the military after 6 years in the infantry and moved back to Vancouver to go to school full time now. I have an apartment downtown right beside the beach so just walking out my front door can be an adventure. I like to read books, lift weights, have a few beers here n there, watch movies and go out to any of the restaurants or bars all over downtown. I've done a fair bit of traveling but mostly with the army to places I would rather not go back to. Once I am done school I plan on traveling to Scandinavia often. I own 2 cats. I like tattoos, I have quite a few of them. I like anything to do with Vikings. I'm pretty anti-drug, so if your idea of a good time is going out on the weekend and doing a bunch of drugs with all the other cool kids we're probably not going to get along.
I have a part time job as a Bouncer at a live music venue downtown which gives me the opportunity to see some of the best music Vancouver has to offer. My favorite instrument is piano but I've grown quite a liking to rockabilly bands, they are just an all around good time to watch haha. I also like just about any kind of rock, blues, country and metal, but there are bands I like outside of those genres. I keep my distance from Rap/Hip-hop. Not really my scene anymore, I liked it when I was 15ish, kind of grew out of it.
My goals are very success oriented, I'm willing to sacrifice a lot to achieve what I want in this life. I've had a lot of time to self reflect and find out what's important in life, at least to me. To summarize them as quick as I can, I want to make a lot of money, I want to own a big house with land, I want a job that affords me to live the lifestyle I want, I want to raise kids to become better people then myself.
I still have a part of me that will never grow up and I think everyone needs that part to remind them to enjoy the little things in life. That's the part of me that keeps going to the aquarium or science world or grouse mountain or just to ride a swing-set in the park. One of my favorite quotes in a funny yet serious context is "You can stop and smell the roses, but don't stay too long; you may get stung by a bumble bee".
Probably something very open, like going to bar for a drink or grab a bite to eat to see if we get along. If we did, the second date would be alot more fun.
