Hi, my name's Mike.
Most of my life is based around nature - I love horses and turtles. In consequence, I am in the Ag program at my high school. I major in plant science. I guess Ag has had a big effect on me, as I now wear boots and a cap regularly. Country music is great, but my favorite band is The Narrative. A few respectable singers are Trace Adkins, Darius Rucker, and Brantley Gilbert. I'm a wholehearted Christian too, and trying to grow closer to my faith. Unfortunately, I'm really stubborn. I can be very argumentative. I also have my first degree black belt.
With this side comes an opposite - painting, drawing, photography, and art make me. I play ukulele and I'm learning guitar. I try to listen and keep as many moral values as possible. I don't swear. I don't lie to my friends, and hold the closer ones dear. I'm loyal, honest, willful, determined, reliable, and trustworthy. To add on to these values, I look for someone who holds the same values as me. I'm still waiting for love because I have high standards. I'm a hopeless lover. That's right, love. Not romance.
Oh yeah, if you've stuck around this long, check out @silverarrow. :)
I love these quotes:
Beware the artist who's an intellectual also. The artist who doesn't fit. —F. Scott Fitzgerald
The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.
No philosophers so thoroughly comprehend us as dogs and horses. —Herman Mellville
Take root in the ground, live in harmony with the wind. Plant your seeds in the winter, rejoice with the birds in the coming of spring. No matter how many weapons you have, no matter how great your technology might be, the world cannot live without love.
