can also can be misunderstood for being pessimistic because I see the reality in things--but most ignore the positive
flavor I dose into the formula. The perceptions of others are mostly out of my control. Why do they ignore
it or not see it the way I do? Probably because I am not traditional. I am unorthodox. All I can do is be
honest and strive to communicate better...So, for that matter, those who do know me, see me as uber positive. I see
the possibility in the insurmountable odds. I come alive when others are calling it quits. I thrive

The most important thing I have learned in the

I like octupus(s), crows, rhinos, monkeys and most dogs. But the octopus is my current favorite,
it is so underrated. Most people go through life not realizing that THE OCTOPUS IS A MOLLUSK (and that it has a beak)...Look
it up...I also love corn.
I don't care much for most of the programming on TV...But I do watch some pro football, boxing and
mma. I also watch some non-fiction programming. Biographies are great, every single one of the "NEWS"
channels seems to be a joke (as is a lot of "Reality TV"). The Simpsons, Family Guy and The Office
are pretty funny. Spongebob Squarepants is pretty cool. I like some of the documentary programming on Discovery,
National Geographic, HBO (Real Sports is great), etc... I'm not one of those "TV is the devil!" types...Frankly,
I wish I could watch MORE television. I believe it's a great tool, but with all the books I want to read and
projects I enjoy doing, it's often hard to justify even the shows I enjoy.
a balancing act. If anything, I run the risk of destroying myself by doing too many "good" or "righteous"
things. Just because it's good, I need to remind myself that it doesn't make it right because, "IF
YOU SAY 'YES' TO ONE THING, YOU ARE SAYING 'NO' TO SOMETHING ELSE."
Which brings me to
books. Wow. Have you been to a library or a book store lately? How about the internet? It's pretty
amazing, there are a lot of writers out there. I read mostly non-fiction. I believe life inspires art, therefore
I like to go to the source.
