My self-summary
I have returned to Pembroke to finish up my degree!

Well, this is an edit, within an edit, disguised as another edit. There's actually a lot to say here. Because I'm like that. Hi. I'm Jason. I live in North Carolina, and while my 'home' is in Hubert, I was born in Jacksonville, and I spend more time there. I have a lot to say about myself, because I'm the only person who really knows said things. It would do well for me to toot my own horn; someone's gotta!

I tend to babble and ramble alot about whatever happens to interest me at the time, but I will always stop to listen to someone's problems. I do not mind going out of my way to do for others in my life, because good deeds ought to be done for the sake of it, and not the expectation of praise. I enjoy peace and quiet probably more than I used to. Once upon a time, I could not stand it, but now? Though most of my friends are loud, boisterous, and vocal, there are times where I need to be away from that, and enjoy some peaceful, quiet alone time.

I have a myriad of hobbies, mostly of the nerdy variety. Feel free to inquire. Yes, I play video games, but they do not dominate my life. I am capable of dividing my time between intellectual persuits and otherwise.

I am witty, gentlemanly, and humorous
What I’m doing with my life
Still at UNC Pembroke, finishing up my English Degree. I plan on using it to hopefully push myself further into the field of Media Journalism that I already find myself in, and I have no regrets. I enjoy it greatly; though I began my college career late due to personal issues, it is what it is. I cannot give in to mediocrity.

I am employed to write about video games; Media Journalism is a field I've wanted to be a part of since I was a lad, and am the Head Console Writer for the pair of websites I work for. Pay isn't terrific, but it's building my resume' to get towards something greater. Besides, I absolutely am enthralled by what I do. I get to travel the country, meet important people, and write unbiased work about the things I love.
I’m really good at
I'm good at everything. Goodness, does that sound pretentious!

Anything I do, I practice and struggle until I am at least competent. I am an avid listener and am fairly quick on the uptake. Not to mention my talent for deadpan humor! I would like to believe I am a skilled writer. Perhaps this is not evident by my post on this site, but, I do what I can.

I am generally known for my near infinite patience.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, perhaps my wondrous hair.. but let's be honest. It's the very stereotypical hebrew nose. But, I'd like to think it fits the rest of my face pretty well. Possibly my boisterous laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A) Much easier to list authors. I cannot believe I went this long without editing this. For shame. David Eddings, Robert Jordan, Terry Goodkind, Terry Pratchett, and his oh-so-amazing Discworld. Sir Conan Doyle, the myriad of authors involved in the Five Chinese Classics. I can and will read pretty much anything. I'm always on the look out for new books. One however cannot forget the works of Tolkien.

B) Movies, movies. Since I don't really watch a lot of TV, I do love movies. Tango and Cash, The Last Samurai, Anything by Akira Kurosawa, BASEketball, the films by Kevin Smith (including Red State), Goodfellas, The Monty Python films, The Princess Bride, Tokyo Gore Police, Ichi the Killer, Vampire Girl vs. Frankeinstein Girl, and the list goes on and on. I love stupid movies as much as I do intellectual ones.

C) Aesop Rock, REM, The Megas, the Protomen, The Adventures of Duane and Brando, Dio, Megadeth, Bad Religion, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Reel Big Fish, Goldfinger, Blind Guardian, Chumbawamba (They did more than two songs, honest), Fastball, REO Speedwagon, Kansas, Chicago, Deep Blue Something, Midnight Oil, Collective Soul, and the list just keeps going.

D) Chinese! Mmm....I'm really open on food. There are not too many things I won't try, though I am a sucker for a good meal.
The six things I could never do without
Family, The internet, a good book, something to write with and upon, the company of friends, a snappy comeback.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think alot. I think more than I act. I think about how they get the M's on the M&Ms, how much of the historical fiction work 'Romance of the Three Kingdoms was legitimate history. Though I have read a great deal of the actual history, some of it just blends in my brain. I have a million thoughts a minute. Could I survive a Zombie Holocaust [Probably not; I'm a coward]? Can I actually sing, or do I sound like a dying, warbling walrus?

This section does not make a lot of sense. My brain is constantly pondering things. I could not possibly contain it, but I gladly would share my thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working; I work pretty much everyday. My job is fairly demanding, and if I'm not working on a paper, researching something interesting, I'm probably working, or recording neat stuff for my Youtube channel (because I'm that boring!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
From the fifth grade, to about my Senior year of high school , I had a cyst growing in my ear. My eardrum popped, and did not heal properly. Unfortunately, it made me a social outcast for that entire time. It pussed and bled, and as an end result, no amount of cleaning or washing ever made me attractive. I was pretty much made fun of every single day I went to school, no matter how smart or nice I was. It was only worsened. I finally had all three bones in my ear reconstructed, and slowly gained back my self-confidence.

This used to be far more depressing than it should be. This event, while dreadful, does not define me. I should definitely edit this more. . .
You should message me if
Why not? I enjoy meeting new people. A good laugh, profound (or not profound) conversation intrigues me, for better or worse. If something I've written interests you then feel free! If you have a good joke, or know something entertaining to do.

You should also message me if we have mutual interests, and you think communication would be appealing. Because that would be terrific.
