A: I have an off-brand, dry sense of humor. People tend to think I'm a serious and angry guy till they get to know me. Then they are surprised to find a fool instead 😄
A: I’m afraid they vary so widely that there’s no way I could go about listing them here. Again, it’s monotony that Races me to the Coffin creaking, splintering, sucking for my warmth.
BUT—photography, monologuing, entertaining, teasing, joking, conversations, interrogating hecklers posing as potential clients, cruising, street walking in the heart of whatever city I happen to be in, people watching, debate (not arguing-DEBATE, lol)
A: I take the trouble to think for myself. Which may sound obvious or pompous — But it is strenuous, tenuous, and arduous. But only if you take the whole pie to task and not only the obvious cherry.
A: So many options, it all depends on what kind of mood happens to strike. And when the iron is hot, who knows? And where I am. Who I’m with. What’s even available there right??.
A: To pick any one event or experience in my life and Call it Paramount, will be nothing but a lie to satisfy the structure of this question. I feel deeply sad for anyone who filled this question out and meant it 100%
A: I hate dogma, the product of other peoples thinking. Surely, there is value To be had in the wisdom of those Who have already lived. But it is the greatest loss, to not develop your own way of thinking and reasoning based on your own interests and values. Your own thoughts and feelings are a better guide for you, than the zealous spittle of any sage who commands respect among men. NO ONE and I mean NO ONE will ever know you like yourself. Honesty with oneself is the greatest tool to personal development/motivation/guidance. But that means the good and bad things. Can’t be all of one or the other. Because both exist in everyone. That’s not just new age lovey dovey bullshit, it’s true. Get trapped with people you hate in a situation where you’re forced to get along and watch the impossible happen. You’ll find common ground. You’ll laugh and fight. Don’t believe it, try it.
A: To approach something with a different perspective or to lend a different perspective to someone else. To rattle the cage, to breathe life into the dead, to Shake the centurion, To soften the troll, to fight God’s, to curse angels, to blaspheme against the holy, to Bring tender love to the outcast, to champion the shunned, To fight against the archetypes. I’m here to bring balance to those who fight against it. Which makes me, my own greatest enemy. For I, am an extremist.
But it is a helluva lot of fun, and interesting as all hell!
P.S. do not attempt at home if life shattering consequences aren’t your thing.
A: Zero consideration for what is traditional or normal when it comes to life decisions, activities, or entertainment. Basically, how to live the life less traveled.
A: This always goes in phases for me. As in most things if I do it constantly I tire of it, if I don’t do it enough I crave it.
A: I love the saying, “If you want something done right do it yourself”
So I get plenty of exercise by doing whatever “it” happens to be at the time—myself.
And I do it with purpose. I’m a problem solver, a solution guy.
It keeps me moving and that keeps me busy. Busy is good.
A: Outgoing.. Very outgoing. I like to take risks, I like to try new things, I like to feel alive. The monotony of routine and the familiar, is what kills me-drives me to the grave quicker. I am a free spirit and always will be, this fire can only be snuffed out along with my heartbeat.
A: I don’t consider “little white lies” to be excusable in contrast to big lies or serious lies.
If you claim to be straight up and honest, I’m gonna hold you to it. So if you’re not, don’t claim to be. Just don’t bring it up and you won’t need to white lie to me.
I honestly, 100%, can accept you as you are. I don’t need you to pretend to be Jesus reincarnated. Really, its cool to be a human bro 😏
The only things I won’t accept are lies.
A: That this question makes me roll my eyes, accompanied with a long, arduous-exhale.
I have created and been the guest of orchestrated moments like the interview question presents. It gives me an ever present although dull sense that something is about to happen, but it doesn’t. The motions are ran through, while both politely smile an uncomfortable amount, make generic “deep talk”, or innocent seeming prods and hooks presented to temp check the other for revealing info about themselves, accompanied with pretend appreciation out of necessity. That’s because it’s been overplayed and built up too much. You can’t enjoy things that have been tirelessly romanticized the way you hope you will.
YOU WANT SPECIAL? YOU WANT TOUCHING? YOU WANT AMBIANCE?
Then abandon garbage pseudo-pinnacle scenes. Go original instead. If you want to show them who you are; have them experience one of your interests or hobbies with you or vice versa. If you want to have fun......you just let me know, but be game 🤠.
I’m gonna muff up any pretentious moments anyway, its my pleasure.
A: That while I am very direct, I can also be warm. There are multiple facets to my personality, and I allow most of them to be expressed freely. An irrational amount of consideration for other people’s feelings about your behavior isn’t any good for you or them. Direct, confident, and assertive is best as a guide. The rest can be used when appropriate and/or desired.
A: That I’m ready day and night to take that leap. Ready to charge head long into whatever is ahead. I can enjoy the here and now, but there will be no looking back, too much ground left to cover.
A: 1. Unknowns
2. Chaos. For in it, I thrive
3. Risk (gotta keep it interesting)
4. New people to meet
5. Those rare but ooo so sweet moments, when you
see the facade come down. That is the greatest gift.
