Who am I
I'm an explorer through and through. Learning, growing, and discovering are encoded in my DNA. I have a number of interests that fall under multiple disciplines: Parkour, yoga, tai chi, and multiple martial arts styles. I'm like an assassin monk druid. A Drumonkin I guess. I have gone with explore class because It is where my heart truly is. I want to go hike the PCT, AT, explore Japan and China as well as the alps.
Where I come from
In high school I was the outsider, the one who saw but didn’t speak. I never had friends, only acquaintances. My only girlfriend was on the computer hundreds of miles away. My grades where a little below average and I was basically just waiting to get out of high school so I could go out into the world on my own.
I moved out of my parent’s house and moved in with my grandparents. Shortly after I moved in my grandfather developed cancer and I took care of him with my grandmother. After 5 years of living and learning from him he passed away and in those 5 years I learned more than I ever had in high school. Just before he passed away my father came down with cancer. My father just passed away in March after suffering from it for a year.
I’m done waiting for my life to change, I am going to be the change. I am done suffering from depression and grief. I’m overweight and out of shape. I know I am more than that but that’s what I see in the mirror every day and I don’t want to keep seeing that. I just really want to look in the mirror and say, “Damn I look good.”
Why am I here? Because I want to look and feel sexy! I want to look back when I’m 30 and think, “The last five years have been awesome and I can’t wait to see what I do in the next five.” I am here to find friends and work with them to achieve their goals and mine.
I am going to imagine my body as steel. Misshapen and ugly at first but as I work and train I will be striking and folding and quenching the steel till it becomes a blade. My mind and spirit has been tempered and tested and now it is time for body to go through the same struggles.
I am currently enrolled in the academy and I am following the quests. I plan on posting on my progress weekly.
My goals so far:
I will strength train 2-3 times per week
I will not drink soda anymore
I will practice yoga 1-2 times per week
I will practice one martial art once per week
By the end of two months I will no longer eat bread or sugar.
The last thing I want to say is if you need a friend here please don’t be afraid to say hi. We are all here for the same reason. I will be your shield brother if you will be mine. I will fight by your side and break down whatever walls, doors, or guards in our way.
If you just want to chat GoT or something you're welcome too as well. I'm looking for friends right now.
