I make it a point to find the time for doing the things I like and spending the time with people who I care about. I like people who have brains, humor and wit, spunk, self-confidence (not narcissism), resilience, strength of character, a willingness to learn and be taught (humility), those who have been through some rough stuff in life and pushed through it (I am not going to make your lemonade for you).
I think video games are lacking – I want my kids to be cut up and bruised from climbing trees and riding bikes, not laying around in front of the TV being conditioned for army drone piloting.
I am interning at the local Zoo. If I like you, I might let you feed the tigers with me ;)
I disapprove of joining cults and cover bands. I approve of paid time off and karaoke. I
discourage overindulgence and under-stimulation. I encourage playing with children and learning a second language. I dislike meddlers and pedophiles. I like photographs and fist fights. I am uninterested in vapid minds and perverts. I am interested in smart-alecs and challenging repartee.
