Who Am I?

I write a lot to assuage the thinking a lot.
I drive algorithms on sites crazy because I appreciate listening to a variety of music and hearing information from two opposing viewpoints. YouTube can’t decide if I’m Republican or Democrat, or even if I’m a man or a woman, I think.
I am an artist. I am particularly skilled at music, writing, poetry, collage and drawings of some sort.

WP_20140420_008I love video games, particularly ones that teach you to rethink or adjust your worldview, make you cry, can be played while high or raise your heart rate.
I work as a freelance developer, designer or digital strategist or what have you.

I’ve also been a stockbroker, a bank teller, a worship leader, a mover, a roof washer, a factory worker, a paper folder, a grease scraper, a youth worker, a YMCA director and a yard cleaner. Now I go to college for Psychology, though I also went for Computer Science and then English Literature.

Oggl_635335273291618943I’ve been to Europe and many, many places in the United States. I’d like to travel constantly and spontaneously. I spend time in coffeehouses, and other various artist magnets like brick walkways, small couches, places where they attempt to sell coolness and establishments where people smoke cigarettes outside.

I’m radically non-violent, empathetic and communicative.
I really like old ships, legos and fidget spinners.
My favorite board game is none. I can’t stand waiting in line or tightly, packed crowds of people. I prefer oceans and campfires and trees and soft mosses.

People have called me:
– Kind
– Gay
– Intense
– Passionate
– Rude
– Weird
– Careful
– Reckless
– Interesting
– Handsome
– Selfish
– Fun
– Dramatic
– Depressing
– A good listener
– A bad listener

Words I feel I want to live up to:
– Autonomy
– Wisdom
– Ingenuity
– Explorer
– Guide
– Philomath
– Satyagraha

I am an ENTP, Aries/Libra with a life path of 3.

I am a constant learner, an advocate for growth and a skilled mediator.

I once was a devout Christian, then an atheist, then a pagan, now a spiritual mutt as my therapist calls it. I think the Four Noble Truths have as much wisdom as the Sermon on the Mount or the Norse Eddas.

  1. Dear not-Jake,

    I blundered onto your blog from mine because WordPress puts these links that say “possibly related” at the bottom of my posts. I thought, wait a minute, I don’t WANT stuff I don’t know about tacked onto my stuff. So clicked the link so I could know about it.

    You are a very out-there guy. I respect that. You think too much. I have the same problem/blessing. I think I’d like to publish your poem “Life is Like Candy…” on one of my sites, PoetryBridge. What do you say?

    1. Wow, Thank you very much.
      Blundering onto new things is a blessing as well.
      I would definetely approve you posting my “poetry” on your site, just give me the cred (Jake Smith) and send me the link in the comments!
      Muchos Gracias! (Spanish for : Thank You Very Much!)

  2. Hey NotJake – I went back to the site for the poem and now I can’t find it. I think it was on the front page and got changed. It was set up in a font that looked like an old typewriter but with the lines on red strips. I should have screen-shot it then – dumb of me not to. Please send that one to moreaboutthis (at) gmail.com.

    I think you should get a site-search-box for your blog so people can always find anything. There’s a free one called FusionBot that does a good job and is easy to customize.

    The site where the poem will go is at http://home.earthlink.net/~poetrybridge You can send it to me or send it from the PoetryBridge site. Thanks. Keep writing. It’s good for the soul.

    1. Wow, it looks awesome. Thank you so much for promoting my “art”. And comments on the web design are greatly appreciated. It takes alot more work than is perceived, as it is with every product of artistic focus. If you’d like to read more lyrics or poetry, click the “lyric” and “love” sidebar buttons on my website. Once again, THANKS!

  3. Jake,
    Wow you’re blog is amazing. You’re music is even more amazing. Your design for UNM is even more amazing! All in all, I have to say you’re just an amazing person! Love the blog! Hope to talk to you soon. Hope everything is well…


    1. Wow! Thanks! I update regularily so keep on coming back thanks. I’m having a very busy time at UNM. Website Design is fun it’s really what I’ve wanted to do with my life other than music. Muchos Gracias for the comment!
