Meet Patrick! Patrick and I used to work together, back when I had a desk job. We got off to a rocky start... I was deep in thought about belt and t-shirt designs when he asked me to help him get a courier for a package. Apparently I was supposed to be doing my job. :)
I'm glad we started hanging out. Through Patrick I've made a whole new mess of friends, and life keeps getting more and more interesting!
In case you're new to the blog, I'm on the left. We are in some serious debate about something of clear import!
Patrick and gang are good friends so I introduced about 23 of them to Duckpin Bowling Saturday night. We took over 5 lanes and got pretty wild.
Why am I so addicted to this? I think it's my highly competitive nature. When you meet me it's definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. I'm fairly unassuming and quiet (though less lately). But that unassuming nature is probably why I am so competitive, I don't like being underestimated. To me life is a little bit like a game, you're dealt some cards and then told to start playing. The goal is to get the high score. I only want the high score to prove something to myself and hope that with it I can do good things, and leave a better mark on the world than when I arrived. Puppies need saving, women rights should be assured, the undeserved need a chance at a level playing field. Building a empire is fun, but it means nothing unless the foundation is cemented properly with the right motivations and love. Love truly does bind and heal. Some times I have a hard time expressing it, but it's always at the forefront of my thought.
Karma... do good, be good... golden rule... platinum rule... purpose... love. The answer is, why not do those things. We get one life, why not be on the good side of the force.
There's my competitive nature popping up again. Rest assured I can loose with the best of them, I just like to do my best. We were near shut down time and my friends insisted I complete my frames because I was on a streak. What a game!
