  1. Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it? I grew up catholic which has helped me with not being so aggressive and it has pacified my ambitions. I have a hard time expressing anger at times and taking what is mine, because it was frowned on. I see myself as more of a thinker when I disengage from the faith and focus more on God himself. School was very easy at first but got fairly challenging later on. I have dyslexia and was put in after school tutoring as a quick fix solution. I was held back in 4th grade and quickly became friends with the nerds and antagonized their bullies mellowing out the class dynamics. I than gave up on the education system becoming a class clown and seeing the bigger picture in life at a very young age. father was in the hospital a lot doing my childhood and I try to have grace that he wasn't able to be there for me at times. I started working at the age of 15 and saved a lot of money and bought a cheap house at the age of 23 I was very proud of myself, but I ended up getting bored and lost in the next step in life. I started to drink all my money away and fucked off my integrity. I'm still guilty to this day that I fell in that trap. I think that's why I have issues with my mentors and the people I looked up to. I didn't get much advice when I asked for help and felt as though I learned a lot the hard way.       
  2. What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not? I really enjoy my job I'm a shift lead at Starbucks. I love teaching and managing my team. I stand up for them a lot and I've been told by my higher ups that I challenge the status quo a little too much. I find myself being used rather than being moved up the ladder, this plays into question 1. I tend to do what is best for the team and not the best for myself.  
  3. If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed? I would feel refreshed because I've been lacking a lot of selfcare lately. I really enjoy being a round people and networking so I would hate for it to be a habit, but for a weekend that sounds nice.

I love a good cerebral pump with friends!
  5. How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?
  6. Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be? I think I'm great at leadership. my bread-and-butter approach is "service is reciprocal." Leaders eat last and you have to approach people for who they are rather than how you want them to be. Once you have earned their favor you can mold them to who you want them to be. I enjoy transparency, I encourage critical thinking and I coach decision making. If I were to fall, I want everyone to know their roles without me. leadership is not a person but rather a vision that many can carry. 
  7. Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity? I'm fairly coordinated. I know I have okay timing in games such as aiming at targets and hitting skill shots, but I prefer turn-based strategy games. Idk if I enjoy working with my hands to be honest. I will say this, I do have a passion for creating and sometimes that work looks like a hands-on approach which I don't mind doing. I also work a lot with my hands hand crafting beverages.
  8. Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particularly artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer. I used to be huge into art when I was younger. I remember when I was child I would create and draw my own levels for some of my favorite video games at the time, I would even go as far to color them in. I was quite impressed on what machines or traps I would come up with for our hero. I took 4 years of art in high school I always thought I was decent art but i was always fascinated with the creative and philosophical side of art. the older I got the more abstract my art became. I hardly ever to art now adays but i think about trying it again and engage with my inner child.

  11. Do you need logical consistency in your life? Yes! A duck is a duck because it's a duck. This a concise expression that suggests a direct and simple truth about the nature of a duck. At a surface level, it signifies that a duck is what it is, and it can be understood by its inherent qualities. but on the flip side if something were to swim like a duck and fly a duck then it could be goose instead and that's why we need to be consistent with our logic.          
  12. How important is efficiency and productivity to you? Yes.
  13. Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that? I don't think I'm very controlling, but I'll definitely let someone run of a cliff if they don't take my advice for the second time.

So for the three classical learning styles I am a visual and kinesthetic learner, but I'm not very good at additory learning. and as for learning environments I prefer quite spaces and small group activities with lots of brainstorming ideas, but I can do a classroom environment if we are encouraged to share our ideas and thoughts with one another.
  16. How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go? I think I'm efficient at delegating and facilitating tasks. it defiantly helps when you have a vision in mind.
  17. What are your aspirations in life, professionally and personally? I'm honestly in a rut at the current moment so not much comes to mind. Professionally: I know I want to be a leader possibly operations coach or be with a think tank and create ideas for a company. personally: create an avenue where I can have freedom to see friends and partake in my hobbies.
  18. What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why? I hate dishonesty, feeling helpless, being controlled.

  26. Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why? We should always challenge the status quo just as much as we understand the "rule book." I feel if I have a vast understanding of the rules then a I can manipulate and break the rules, I also won't be giving out any ammunition to those I challenge the rules with. It's okay to break rules for integrities sake we can't have rules ruining our society and wellbeing.

Weaknesses others have seen: Not taking care of myself. taking too long to process emotions and feelings (I can retreat and just forget about them in a game or something.) Working too much for others. the thing I hate about myself the most is that I tend to never take care of my things as much as a should for example. house, car and metal health. all three can get bad if I just focus on work and prosses the numbness of life.

  2. How do you feel about romance/sex? What qualities do you want in a partner? I little robotic, honestly, lol. I really don't care for the term because I sound like an edge lord, but a sapiosexual would be the best way to describe me on this topic. I'm very attracted to cleaver and witty women. I also like tall/strong women they can carry more resources and bear strong children.   
  3. If you were to raise a child, what would be your main concerns, what measures would you take, and why?
