Because of life experiences, I'm a VERY open minded person. I have a little bit of low self esteem but not nearly as bad as earlier in my life. I'm not fond of being in large groups for any length of time but would much rather be with one or two people. YES! I am an introvert. I'm mechanicly inclined and have been since a child. I can weld, do wood working and carpentry, plumbing, rebuild engines, build electronics as well as a little masonery. I've never been afraid to tackle anything in life except maybe depression. I've always enjoyed challenges in life and still do. I know if I put the effort into something, I can accomplish it. I've had a social phobia from the time I can remember until about 12 or so years ago. I'm sure it was from low self esteem. I've had major depression for about 15 years that I know of and I suspect I've had some form of depression all my life. I'm adopted and had wonderful parents. As a child, I can remember a lot of fun and happy times but I also remember a lot of lonliness. It makes me wonder if I was born with some depression. If you would like to know more about me, I have written some blogs "memories of my life". It will give you some insight of the real me I suppose. I'm VERY easy to get along with and it takes a LOT to upset me. When I'm really upset, it's not a pretty sight. LOL I think a lot... if something is bothering me, I think about it a lot before I act. I try to think before I say things so as not to upset someone. I hate saying something and it not come out like I really meant and felt.
Listening to waves crashing on a beach. Looking at the stars. Watching people. A nice campfire. Sitting in a hot tub when it's snowing. People that really care, travel. I love music but have days I have a hard time listening to it. Love to see and learn others cultures.

I don't like "control". Don't like controlling people nor controlling governments. Everyone should be free to do as they like as long as they aren't bothering others. Is it too much to ask that we all get along? Don't like abuse of any kind... MANY catagories. Did I mention that I don't like depression and how it affects my life? :)

I have done many things that I've enjoyed. Some I still do, some I would do again and may some day. I've enjoyed snow mobiling, Jet Ski's, snorkeling as well as skuba diving, parachuting out of a perfectly good airplane, snow skiing and water skiing and still love hunting, fishing and camping as well as anything to do with the outdoors. I enjoy wood working and seeing what I can produce with my own hands.
