Christine asked this question and so I am honoring her request by posting this: Ok what do you do for a living or at leisure?
As a living, I am an IT Project Manager for the North Carolina Department of Transportation. This pays my bills and gives me a modest income to support my scotch habit and occasional boating jaunt (I am a power boater). I usually rent a specific condo in Oceanside (The better side of Va Beach) and chill. It is my private place and I do not take anyone but Ginger with me when I go. Ginger is some what the center of my life now and she doesn't mind my misgivings. Dogs are so great at unconditional love. We could learn a lot from them. Except for the butt sniffing thing.
Music is my other passion and although I am not an accomplished musician. I enjoy playing normally for myself and Ginger. She just puts her paws over her ears, seriously. My other music passion is that I am working on producing a couple of local artist and getting there video and audio projects recorded and marketed. Other details of this are part of my private life so I won't go into any long drawn out explanations.
I enjoy my privacy a lot but I am also a very lonely man. I am trying to get past that and be more outgoing. Other parts of my life I keep very private because I have been hurt by letting people in who did not have good intentions or my feelings at heart. So it is hard for me to open up to people. I'm trying but it is hard. So I crawl back in my shell and wait for the next opportunity.
The fact that I am saying this much is a testament that I starting to overcome my fears. I just hate putting my heart out there and it gets crushed and that’s where I am now. I sulk a bit, drink a bit of scotch, read a good book and get over it and I am back on target. I try not to dwell to much on life's issues. Besides, several women think I would make a good husband and unfortunately, they are all married. So that sums up my living and my leisure. Oh. I also enjoy going to VT football games. My nephew was playing until he tore his ACL in practice and now has to sit out this season to recover.
