An orgin story of the Savage Scientist (a draft)

A little while ago (5 years nearly), I resolved to write about my adventures rebuilding my own identity from the age old conflict of most life long athletes, recovering from an life altering injury. This one being the one that broke the camel’s knee and causing a retreat to playing it safe and using highly refined skills of running, marginally, fast to get fat at desk working at a 9-5 gig. Receiving a daily stipend of platitudes over social media, for find motivating things to post while my own fire was dying inside.

I share this because  it summarizes what happens all to often when something motivates us to take the fork in the road that is well worn, avoiding the road less traveled, simultaneously ensuring safety and disappointing our 9th grade selves. I promise to keep retrospectives to a minimum in the future; as the past lays the ground work that will be shared. But, the hope is as a debriefing exercise more than wistful nostalgia.

Look forward to my future posts:
My much abused 80/20 method to dieting.

Often high energy, thanks to coffee, I'm just a guy who filled most of his skill tree with points in wisdom(research), strength (athletics), dexterity (combat), and eating. If you haven't figured it out or stumbled on this blog by recommendation. My attempt with this blog is to explore ideas that begin under the umbrella of seeking enlightenment and personal development through: the traditional arts, sciences, and philosophies; along with arguably life's greatest teacher, the savage sciences of combat sports. Join me as we find out what we can learn together!
