I was born on an island, grew up in a castle, and set up forts in the caves of a cliff next to my house. It was a wonderful childhood. Sometimes I think back on it and wish it had never came to the abrupt end that all dreams come to when you wake up; but it did and thus I crossed the ocean to the US of A and things got a bit more complicated.
I went to private school my whole life where I was taught capitalism, patriotism and Jesus. I took their advice and joined the army. I fought in two wars I never believed in and became quite bitter about everything. Anyone who has been to war and does not come out the other side with a firm hatred of it is probably insane. I got out of the army after that and spent a couple years wandering and lost. I assumed I would probably be lost forever. Then one day I found myself working on a little organic farm my uncle owned in the mountains of Virginia. I woke up one morning and realized the fire had returned. I finished out the season and said goodbye to the farm that most likely saved my life. I no longer believe in patriotism, hell I don't even believe in the idea of countries, I think nationalism and religion is dangerous and I certainly don't want to be thanked for my service for if I had known what it was I was being asked to do I would have kindly asked you to go fuck yourself. That being said, I am no longer bitter, there's too much of life happening out there to let the darkness drive out the light (credit to MLk for that one).
That was all a bit serious for my liking I'm really not all that serious. Sometimes I go home and revisit the old cave forts. That makes me happy.
I am quite the nerd. Be forewarned. I read, I read a lot. I read science fiction. I read History books. I read philosophy, classical literature, poetry, contemporary literature. You name it I will read it. I play the violin. I play video games. Star Trek is my religion. I write. I have a garden. I cook myself food. I can be introverted at times. I enjoy periods of seclusion. I wear reading glasses.
For the most part I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle with the occasional whiskey to keep me sane. I do still have my moments of getting a little wild every now and then. Do what you want just try not to hurt people in the process.
I have a cat. His name is cat. Cat was formerly known as Napoleon. He refused to answer to this name so now he is just cat. Sometimes he is a good cat. Update. I changed his name again to Jay Edgar. He's a sneaky little fuck and he's always watching me. Update to my update Mr Kitty is back to being his royal self once more so he's informed me henceforth and forever always he will be known as the Duke, Leto Atreides. Gom Jabar.
I can be quite witty, slightly sarcastic and love some good old fashioned repartee. I love wine. I love good beer, whiskey, and tequila. I prefer dive bars to clubs but i'm not afraid to dance. I enjoy a good conversation accompanied with a bottle of wine. I love to debate (argue) anything from movies to the universe to politics.
I have been told I have a beautiful singing voice. Like an angel. Yes, it was my mother who told me this. Cat seems to like it.
I have a constant craving for adventure. I tend to be a bit reckless and slightly hedonistic. I recently got rid of everything I owned said goodbye to my friends hopped in my car and moved from Orlando to Seattle. I enjoy going out alone and meeting people which is rather important since I have moved to a city in which i do not know the name of a single person.
I will be a History professor in the not too distant future.
I can be stubborn, aloof, egotistical, argumentative, frustrating and frequently make bad first impressions. I can also be charming, intelligent, hilarious, eccentric, and hopelessly romantic. I'm impulsive at times, pensive when necessary, adventurous always.
That is all for now if you would like to know more...
