Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself.

I was already following this blog for more then a year but it never occurred to me to join this community but couple of days ago I just did.

My name is Ferdi. I am 29 years old and I live in the Netherlands. If you have ever been there I live in southwest near the sea.

Personally I started following this site because i liked the kind of articles that they have.

I am always looking out to improve myself. Becoming the better/stronger version off myself.

This translates allot into reading but also things I do and how I behave in this world. I am a strong believer you get what you put in. If you are a jerk don't expect people to treat you with love and respect. You get the idea.

I love reading. I usually read Philosophy's( Like plato) and self improvement books. I take out the things that resonate with me and apply them into my life. Or at least I try to.

I also read books about health & fitness for trying to expand my workouts.

I don't go to the gym. I do everything at home and my basis is always bodyweight workouts and just being creative with weights for lifting.

My day to day job is that I am a electrical technician.

I just hope to discover people here that are like minded here and learn new things or perhaps help someone out.

Well don't really know what to say next so if you have any questions for me just ask me.

Have a nice day gentlemen!

Dan heet ik je graag welkom op het forum. Zelf ben ik ook Nederlands, en 16 jaar oud. 
Ook ik lees graag filosofie. Ik ben nu bezig met het lezen van Chinese filosofie (Laozi/Mozi), aangezien we dit thema behandelen met de leesgroep bij ons op school.

Nog maals, van harte welkom.

Hi Ferdi, it's great that you're trying to improve yourself! I try to look at my behavior and decisions to see if I'm the person I want to be. Unfortunately, sometimes you're a good person, and people take advantage; I'm learning to recognize who's worth it and who's not. Man, I getting a little deep here. Welcome to TAOM.

I know what you mean. Some people will take advantage of others. that will never change.

"They're bigger rounds with better stopping power.  A 9mm is the weapon of choice for many, but it will often take a few hits center-mass to stop somebody.  .45s tear bigger holes, so it takes less shots to stop. JB"
