This question oddly had me at a loss for words, much to the amusement of several friends. Apparently, they've never encountered that side of me. So, with my so called friends assistance I can provide a third party description for YOUR amusement...
It would seem that I am the class clown out of the office, but somewhat of a terror in the office. That would be my A type personality. This surprised me, as I approach work as a necessary evil that supports my desire to live. My career doesn't define me, nor is it the center of my Universe. Work is a means to an end. That end being to have the freedom to experience all of life's possibilities.
This overarching philosophy comes from my grandmother who told me as a child that "each day is a gift and tomorrows are never promised anyone." The worst question one can ever ask themselves is "what if?"
