Seven Things You Don't Know About Me

#7.) I am a traveller. My wife and I danced under the Eiffel Tower on Bastille Day in Paris on our honeymoon in 2007. A few weeks later we dined on a rooftop restaurant in Athens. A few weeks after that we were sleeping in a cave in the desert in central Turkey. We are not done travelling yet.

#6.) I have competed at the Provincial and National Championships in archery. While I never won a major national tournament, I have won some minor ones. I am still a very good shot.

#5.) I have a brown belt in kickboxing and in jiu jitsu.

#4.) I am on a "get rid of stuff" phase. I have fewer items in my wardrobe now than I have ever had in my life. No one seems to notice.

#3.) I am considering taking the next steps to becoming an administrator someday. I will be looking at beginning a Masters in Education in 2009.

#2.) I am not very good with power tools, and I don't know why I don't have these skills. Actually I am decent with a circular saw, but I have not done the home reno, "DIY" kind of stuff like tiling a floor, cutting and installing crown molding, or hanging/mudding/taping drywall. Same goes for cars.

#1.) I excercise on average 5 times a week, and sometimes twice a day on Tuesday and Thursdays. I do this in part for my martial arts training, and partly because it keeps me from feeling pain. When I train I don't feel any of my old injuries, but the minute I stop they eventually resurface. Furthermore I train because I am vain and my wife says she likes what she sees.
