What I Want to Do:


 
Personal Motto
I've always felt that whatever you want to do in life, whatever your goals, your passions, your dreams, your aspirations, whatever you want to do, then by all means just go out and do it. Basically just go out and go for it. Sometimes it's best to not try and think about the potential risks and consequences too much - sometimes the best thing to do is just go out and do it, and then deal with what happens later.

Whatever you want to do, then just go ahead and set out to achieve it. And whether you succeed or fail, at least you've tried. Then go out and try again.

Seize the moment, and Go For It! :)

About Me I admit that I'm a very easy-going, relaxed, mellow person. In fact, at times my friends say that I'm too mellow, but that's fine by me. I love to travel - I've traveled around Western Europe, the UK (on a number of occasions), Australia (twice), New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, Japan, Independent Samoa, Eastern Canada, and a few other places here and there. I consider myself politically and socially Progressive, I'm very liberal. I consider myself very left of center.

Wild Fact About Me I do not own a cell phone...and I think I never will! :)
My Philosophy Wherever you go, there you are. :)
What Gives Me Hope The belief that tomorrow will always be a better day. And on that note, no matter how bad the world seems to be these days, I'm optimistic that at least future generations will make this world a much better place.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Direct more funding to public education - as they say, when children have access to quality public education, they'll grow up to become productive and vital citizens. I would also establish universal health care for all citizens - when everyone has access to quality healthcare, everyone benefits.
What/who changed my life and why My first overseas trip, a few months after I graduated from university. That experience made me realize that, indeed, there is a world out there, a world worth exploring.
