HI from Mississippi bi guy

Unread postby Unkdesigns » 19 June 2020, 04:33

First name: Randall
Nickname(s)?: Randy
Age: 53 (I may be lying about my age; ) Older guys do that. )
Orientation: Bi
Where you live: Mississippi currently
Where you're from: All over the Eastern US. Spent a lot of time in Maine, been in Mississippi 10+ years.
What you do (job, schooling, etc.): Self employed restoring fine antiques and antique houses. Bachelors degree in International Management. I was a programmer for 25 years and finally could not take the corporate structure anymore.
Dream Job: Have not found it yet, but have tried a variety of things. I seem to gravitate toward things related to real estate.
Religion (or lack thereof): None. I am sorry to say I am intolerant of most faiths and the sheep that follow them. But I also don't have all of the answers.
Political philosophy: Politics is the art of lying. All politics.
Interests and hobbies: Humor, cycling, antique cars, books, antiques, music, real estate restoration, younger guys, travel, mostly road trips, but been overseas too. I LOVE the Southwest US and visit it a lot. The Grand Canyon is my Mecca.
Drinking, drugs or sobriety?: Drink a bit. Used to do pain pills a lot.
Special talents: I know antiques really well and can identify fakes, date pieces, etc. I also know a lot about real estate restoration. I am also a pretty good judge of people. I can make a joke about almost anything, even when inappropriate, but I know when to keep my mouth shut too.
Pet peeves: Slow drivers, most news that is pure sensationalism, people that act like sheep, clear hard plastic packaging.
Personal hero: Never been into heroism.
Favourite real-life homosexual: No one comes to mind, but I totally admire any gay person who is totally "out".
Favourite movies: As good as it gets. Brokeback Mountain (trite I know but I do like it)
Favourite TV shows: All of my favorites shows seem to disappear after a few seasons. Schitts Creek for instance.
Favourite music: Mostly classic rock and whatever the new hit songs happen to be. I also like some classical (note: surveys show that most people say they like classical, but never listen to it- ha)
Favourite books: [/b} My favorite book is usually the last one I read. I tend to read "single topic" books a lot. Currently reading about mosquitoes. Some have dared to call my selections boring!
[b]Favourite food:
Diet Mtn. Dew, Sweet potatoes, great steak, sushi, any cooked greens. Oh, and southern pork BBQ. (No, I am not a fat southerner).
A quote to live by: "One day or day one?" also "What do you want? What are you waiting for?"

Oh, kinda the same I guess!

I was just like you described when I was younger, up to about age 19 I think. Then I reached some realisations about myself and tried vaping weed (which was legal where I lived at the time, 12-ish years ago), loved it, and it kinda went from there. Never anything illegal though, and never anything as addictive or deadly as opioids or tobacco or alcohol! And now at 31 I just use legal psychedelics, typically analogues of LSD, occasionally (and vape weed once in a blue moon when I get back to my native Holland).

I changed in some other ways too :P
