大牛 is a self-proclaimed optimist who spends many hours of his life trying to find life challenges both mentally and physically to overcome.
Failure is a commonly encountered experience in 大牛’s life. In fact, a large part of his life is spent on dealing and recovering from painful failures. Several good friends of 大牛 once told him that he is probably crazy trying to pursue so many challenging things within his lifetime. One best friend even commented that 大牛 is masochistic.
Secretly, although 大牛 doesn’t want to admit it, he think his best friend is probably right. Unfortunately, it seems that 大牛’s has inherited the ‘never says die’ attitude from his mom and he continues on his journey to challenge one life’s difficulties after another.
大牛 is a firm believer of treating life with a huge dose of humor. It is part of his inner mechanisms that keep him optimistic. He also loves to use humor to spread joy and fun to people around him. Life in 大牛’s term is about being able to let go and enjoy the moment completely occasionally especially during dinner and dance. Secretly, 大牛 think that many people will not take 大牛 seriously after looking at his D&D photos. 🙂
