"for a man to get something he has never had, he's going to have to do something he's never done". Wisdom at its finest!
So who am I? We can start at my core, what drives me like the nucleus of a cell. Let's call it my "social dna"
I love the saying "Nothing is True, Everything is Permitted". To me it means that views, life and the status quo changes so much much how Bruce Lee says to "be water"; to be fluid in these situations allows me to survive in life. The second part of it just means that people are going to do what they like. As long as they aren't hurting anybody while doing it, no judgement zone here.
Religion usually is at the core of a person too and my lack there of is a driving force on how I deal with adversity. I'm pretty staunch Agnostic Atheist and what this boils down to is that when I have a problem, I look for practical ways to overcome that obstacle than looking for wisdom from a higher power.
I started along this path beginning with the death of my Dad, but it didn't solidify with the death of my Mom. It was when I was very broke living in Vancouver and had to make a decision that would help me but have dire consequences that I came to terms that I was in control of my life and I had to be the one to take responsibility for my actions.
Lastly at my core, people might think that my culture/race is a driving force, it's not. I feel no obligation to act they way people might think I should just based on phenotype. Although I do understand the struggles that we've gone though and keep that in mind. For me though, I just start from a place where everybody is human.
Alright lets jump out of the center of the cell and lets go with the Protons and Neutrons of me. Ya know the stuff I'm into? Video games are high on my list of interests, honestly games in general. I went to school for Game Design, work as a Game Tester and host Pokemon Tournaments twice a month. It's save to say I like video games.
From games in a broader since, I like the creative process of creating some type of media. I can flex these muscles while hosting Triva, singing Karaoke, writing a story or getting way to lost in Tvtropes.com. I want to do more with a Youtube channel, Podcast or anything else that'll allow me build an experience that people will enjoy.
I'm also a nature person that doesn't get out in nature enough. I'm sure I'd like things like Hiking and I've only been camping once but I'm not anti-outdoors. I'm not from here so back home in Philadelphia it wasn't a big thing to go in the woods and enjoy nature, so I did the best I could with what I had. There is this little creek trail in Northgate that I go to from time to time to relax and take it all in. When summer rolls around, I'll find the time to get into the swing of those things.
Lastly I like being Social, I'm an extrovert even though I thought I was an introvert for years. Most of my week is dedicated to hanging out with friends in come capacity. We'll go to trivia, play board games, mixer, see a show, movies, talks or the random house/bar party.
So when Captain America asks for your help, how can you say no? Anthony Mackie should have said no to crossover, but glad he said yes to Capt'n.
