if in reading my profile, you take one thing with you, let it be this: think arete. the classic greek philosophers had a word for the process of self-actualizing and striving to reach your highest potential. they called it 'arete.' (pronounced ar-uh-tay) arete was one of the most important values in classic greek culture. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle tell us that the meaning of life is happiness and that the way to achieve happiness is to live with arete (excellence, striving to reach your highest potential). if you've gotten past that, my name is adam. i'm not your typical orange county guy and I don't fit the mold whatsoever, but living in the land of orange groves suits me well. now, for there to be any sort of connection, be it, friendship or otherwise, one of us has to initiate conversation so just keep that in mind when you read my profile
I'm a college student for life, constantly looking to further myself, I work hard, and live life as if each day is my last..
I'm really just looking to find someone to have engaging conversation and someone who is intellectually stimulating. I've been extremely motivated as of late. mainly to avert my attention from specific thoughts. Most of the time I can be quite sarcastic and maybe a little too compassionate. My life isn't really quite drama its not quite comedy... some parts are funny, some parts are tender, but its real. everything i feel... its real. And that has to count for something.
I am in the public eye and as such so is my theism. And if you know anything about me you probably have gathered that my faith is the most important facet of my life... no… facet is a horrible word, the wrong word. Facet means one side of a many sided figure. I am my faith - my faith is me. Running, writing, and speaking is a facet of my faith, I put these things with God not God with these things. The difference is paramount.
I must admit, I hesitated when I checked the box for being a Christian. I don’t know what "Christian" means anymore. I know what its supposed to mean, I know what it should mean, I'm a huge fan of the word's namesake, but that definition has long since faded away. Today, the word has been diluted. Call me a Christ follower - just so there's no confusion. Just to be clear - I am not religious. This isn’t about religion. Religion is dangerous. People bomb buses and buildings in the name of religion; religious people tend to make me very, very nervous. Being in the hands of religious men is a dangerous, dangerous place to be... ask Jesus - He’ll tell you the same thing.
What I'm Looking For
I would love to meet someone I could enjoy spending time with, nothing too intense start as friends and see where it grows. Most things I do would involve some sort outdoorsy activity, I am forever in awe of all the places I've yet to see, which leads me to try new things...
