Re: What would other people find most unusual about your life?
I'm a creature of contrasts. I'm a very quiet, introverted guy. I like my books. I've got a degree in religious studies though I'm an atheist (purely an academic interest). I'm a feminist. I come a very complicated family background which means I don't always understand the basic ways families interact. If you ask me how my week is or about myself, I don't say much but if you ask me about current events, politics or social issues we'll strike up a big old conversation. In many ways, I'm a quiet guy who fancies himself an academic.
On the other side? I've been involved in the martial arts for about five/six years now? Somewhere in that range. I train three hours every day, which isn't a bunch but it's more than you might expect of me. I do judo, BJJ, muay thai and wrestling. I'm decent at it too and I like the aggression you get to burn off in it. Through my martial arts school, I got my current job as security at a bar. It's the last job you might expect me to have.
Basically, I like my life a lot. It's got these two clearly divided sides but they do a lot to keep me balanced.
