This Dalai Lama Quote best sums of my outlook on life.
"All living beings, starting with insects, want happiness and not suffering.Others gaining happiness is more important than yourself alone."
I'm a very caring individual who cares very strongly about the Environment and animal rights.I grew up in Bend Oregon and have lived the past 5 years in Portland. I recently finished school in Portland and I'm going to be moving to New Zealand for a year come next summer, so spending some of my time till then working for my dad here in Bend. I will be moving back up to Portland this late August. I don't like cars and haven't had one in 5 years. I'm a very liberal guy and very open minded. I guess you can say I'm a hippie but I don't dress like one.
