I'm athletic and I workout regularly, but I don't like going to the gym. I've done a couple triathlons in the past, but the training for them is kind of obsessive, so I don't know if I'll do another. I kayak on the ocean and swim in lakes during the summer. I also like going on river trips. I ski sometimes, but I have to try snowboarding. I like the summer a lot more than the winter.
I've been pushing myself to try new things lately. I did some hiking on the Appalachian Trail a couple years ago. Hiking is nice, but hanging out with all the thru hikers and becoming a part of that community for about a week was the best part of the trip. Last year I started traveling. I recently planned a trip to Peru and ended up in Bolivia because it sounded like a cool place to go. I broke a bone in my hand on that trip, so I got to experience the Bolivian hospital system. That was interesting. This summer I want to go to a music festival and get a motorcycle.
I'm currently in school for nursing and working as a nurse assistant. I did get a degree in mechanical engineering, but nursing for the most part fits my personality better. I also see myself getting a lot further in nursing than I would in engineering.
I play computer games sometimes, and I also have a dog. He's a good pal.
