my happy factor

It is always good to remind yourself of the things that make you happy. Its also nice to check every once in a while to see if you're doing these things. This is my list in no particular order.

Stained Glass
I am an artist. I'm actually Artist in Residence at Backstreets Pub & Deli in Clemson, SC. I'm lucky enough to have a place where I can be as creative as possible, without worrying about whether my windows fit any specific style or theme. What I love about stained glass as an art is the hands on skill that is involved, and having something to show for your work at the end of the day. New Windows

My friends are the most important people in my life. For me to consider you a friend you have earned my respect, admiration, and trust. My friends are open minded, intellectual, caring, and passionate people, who exhibit these qualities in all aspects of their lives. Basically, they rock.

This is something that I do not do enough of. I love to travel, meet new people, & experience different ways of life. I love to see history, and to see the similarities and differences of how people live. I love the architecture, I love the food, I love the music, & the atmospheres that you encounter when you travel. Travel for me = awesome. I even enjoy work trips.

I like making the decisions that make race cars go faster. I love being at the track all day in the summer working on the car in the heat, and the feeling you get just before the race starts. I love being on the radio, and giving the driver the information he needs to make quick decisions on the track, and giving the guys on pit road the information and tools they need to make quick repairs or adjustments. The people are great, and the rush is like no other.

I love to dance, or as some people like to say, 'wiggle.' The comparison has been made more than once to the toy flower with the sunglasses from the 80's that dances when it hears music. I love sweating uncontrollably in a warm ballet studio, while your body is perfectly under control. I love fast paced jazz classes, there the choreography is cutting edge and challenging. While I'm not taking classes anywhere right now, I do love to go out and dance. My favorite venue of the minute being anywhere PictureMeFree is playing. :)

This is going to sound crazy coming from someone who pretty much hates school right now. (more on that later, maybe) But I love to learn. I love learning about new things, technology, people, places, you name it. I really do think that with knowledge comes understanding, and with understanding comes peace and progress. [note: Thats my inner hippie coming out]
