I'm on vacation from life. Life was real serious, since college and thereafter. I left a career I loved, but hated, and stopped to take in my surroundings.
Last year, I went to Afghanistan. This year I went to Hawaii, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands. Next year I'm going to Peru, Burning Man and SXSW.
I raise chickens, talk to my cat, write about things, think deep thoughts, drool over DIY projects, and travel.
I have hobbies, like writing, motorcycles, skiing, avoiding people, and so forth. They come and go depending on what works at the time / place I'm in.
I also volunteer for a nonprofit that helps veterans with various issues.
