updates and what not

The last week has been incredibly surreal and in many words stressful.

I cant really get into it but I am more than a mess over this.

Smiles when sleeping.

Anyway, been playing with this for the past week. Which my boss is just like…well, no fucking wonder you’re such a pain in the ass.

According to Myers-Briggs, ISTPs excel at analyzing situations to reach the heart of a problem so that they can swiftly implement a functional repair, making them ideally suited to the field of engineering. Naturally quiet people, they are interested in understanding how systems operate, focusing on efficient operation and structure. But contrary to their seemingly detached nature, ISTPs are often capable of humorously insightful observations about the world around them. ISTPs abhor waste (be it in time, effort, or resources) but are highly adaptable, making them open to new information and approaches. They enjoy exploring new things, and can become bored with repetitiveness and routine. They can also be closet daredevils who gravitate toward fast-moving or risky hobbies (such as bungee jumping, hang gliding, racing, motorcycling, and skydiving), recreational sports (such as downhill skiing, paintball, ice hockey, and scuba diving), and careers (such as aviation and firefighting).

ISTPs may sometimes seem to act without regard for procedures, directions, protocol, or even their own safety. But while their approach may seem haphazard, it is in fact based on a broad store of knowledge developed over time through action and keen observation. ISTPs enjoy self-sufficiency and take pride in developing their own solutions to problems.

ISTPs can often be a frustration to their friends or partners due to a propensity to ignore everyone while deeply absorbed in a task. The ISTP should be careful that they do not cause offence by this seeming aloofness, as it could have a negative impact on otherwise great relationships.

ISTPs are content to let others live according to their own rules and preferences, as long as the favor is reciprocated. ISTPs endure reasonable impositions without complaint — but if their “territory” is encroached upon, eroded, or violated, their quiet, easy-going nature is quickly abandoned in favor of stubborn and staunch defense of what they view as rightfully theirs. It has been observed that a slogan that best describes this ISTP attitude is “Don’t Tread On Me.”

According to Keirsey, Crafter Artisans are masters at using tools of every type—artistic, technological, martial. Although they are introverts, they are authoritarian in their interactions with others and can be forceful at influencing people. They focus on accomplishing tasks efficiently and skillfully.

To master the tool of their interest, ISTPs require a certain degree of seclusion in which to practice. The result is often a virtuosity that other types find difficult to match.

Figures…

whelp…

The past few days have been interesting.

After crashing the Spider Monkey bash Saturday I got pasted at Spaulding and Wrightwood by a car. Didn’t see it coming and now I have grill marks on my ass…a fuzzy headache and bruises all over.

These don’t really phase me usually and I will keep riding obviously but this time? I am tad freaked out about it, just a little.

Maybe it is the purple palms from the my stopping the fall? Maybe it was the car not stopping?

I feel pretty lucky about this one. Dodged a bullet I think I did. It has kind of put the past few months in perspective (shockabuku) for me if anything and then watching some other people around me going through similar resolve testing issues (Andrea, Leah, Amy, Chris, Jeff…) kind of clears the air for me.

Anyway, shake it off right? And no, not that terrible Swift song. I got to hand it to my friends over the past couple months. You have been awesome. You know who you are. Thank you.

Jingle Cross this weekend…I am actually registered for CX nats too…win the party that’s what I say. Been straight edging it more that not and have corrected some issues with my coach…should be interesting to see what happens.

Mexico City track racing…stay tuned…

booboo
