“To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles…”
And indeed, that IS the question: whether to float with the tide, or to swim for a goal. It is a choice we must all make consciously or unconsciously at one time in our lives. So few people understand this! Think of any decision you’ve ever made which had a bearing on your future: I may be wrong, but I don’t see how it could have been anything but a choice however indirect — between the two things I’ve mentioned: the floating or the swimming. - Hunter S. Thompson
Ah where to begin. Its seems odd trying to describe ones self in a few short paragraphs. And if we are unable does that mean we haven't lived, or is that we are just poor with being articulate about ourselves? Haha who knows, its a dating website. Anyways...
I've been really getting into cooking lately. Cooking network tv shows have been a staple, like "The next Iron Chef", "Chopped", "Worst Cooks in America". I figure if those people who put vanilla with chicken can learn how to cook, so can I. So far I make a pretty decent beer soaked brat. Coors appears to be the best beer for that..yes I know, coors.. If you have another suggest I'm always willing to try. I've gotten into trying out different rubs and marinades on chicken and beef as well.
I used to be really into black and white photography. I want to get back into that. I just made prints of some shots I took in college, and and it really made me miss working in a dark room and all that jazz. Any suggestions on a camera?
And nature and outdoor stuff as well. I grew up camping, but I have not been for many years. Any takers?
Family is also fairly important to me. I'm in hockey leagues with my cousins, and a few friends that are basically brothers to me. I try to head to my parents house about once a week for the big family dinner.
I enjoy watching Bears, Hawks, Fire, or soccer in general. I've gotten into the Bulls as well lately. I'm also an equal opportunist, I watch Sox and Cubs.
I've also just started doing a yoga class these last few months and have found it rather enjoyable.
Besides that, I'm a person who is generally care free, and very laid back. I generally try to see things from different people's perspectives, and try to stay away from just the black and white aspect of things. I generally am not afraid to try most things, and I'll try anything once. My friends pretty much come first in my life, and i pretty much will do anything for them. I can enjoy a night out at the bars, a night at movies with friends, or just a night in. I can also go the other route with a night out camping, a night at a museum, or something i haven't done before.
I'm very sarcastic, but have been known to speak honestly about things i am passionate about. I like to quote tv shows, and movies. My friends and I also like to quote ourselves and some of the goofy things we've done or said in the past.

You know, there are way to many to name..If you have a band you really like, let me know. I listen to music all day at work, so I'm always looking for some new things to listen to.
I've tried all sorts of dates...coffee, dinners, bowling, event, etc. But I've found just going out for a casual cup of coffee, and just going from there works out the best. Or maybe a walk in a park or something when it gets nice out.
