Tri-Fold Gold: Log #1


To those that find this beyond my coding academy blogs, this is more of a personal treatise dealing with/about myself.

Pay no mind to it if you find it does not benefit you. This is more for my sake.

Things I’ve considered as of late: Self-discovery

Meyers-Briggs: ENTP-A

Enneagram: 7w8

Zodiac: Taurus on the cusp of Aries

So why these things? Why the title “Tri-Fold Gold?”

The title? for the simple reason of my pursuing work, a class, and working on a startup. Am I nuts? Most likely!

The rest? Because they explain why I can’t stop.

At my best, I show restraint. I Create. At my worst, I’m a living black hole. consuming everything. Chasing after new experiences, new projects, new ideas, etc.

Anyone that’s a type 7 on the enneagram can relate. And yet, for as much as this seems to be my dark side, it’s gotten me so far.

I don’t understand what it means to be satisfied, and if I do, then it’s temporary.

All of my abilities I use for good. But at what cost? I ask myself but I don’t seem to find the answer because, in the end, it seems I’m living my “best” life.

I don’t have or feel any qualms for my actions because they don’t harm anyone, at least to my knowledge. If they did, I’d know. Add to this that I’d never attempt to hurt anyone. I truly desire to contribute to others in a positive manner.

I’m designed to experience all that life has to offer, and use those experiences to better myself and others should they desire the same. Indeed, I am more than this. But this makes up a great majority of I am.

My thoughts are constantly of my dreams, journey, goals, and the magic and wonders of life.

I’ve always followed my heart. Even when I didn’t know it. And I have yet to be disappointed. I am forever in a state of mesmerization.

I like to think I’ve stayed true to myself. Even if that’s meant starting a project and moving on to another one without completing the previous one.

My expectations are that I’ll someday abandon these writings. For whatever reason.

No matter what, and no matter how random they are, I hope they help myself and others.
