I wish I could give a good clear message about myself but for some reason I can't. I can list some random facts about myself and hope that gives you a picture of who I am. Sound good? Great.
I'm a comic book nerd and proud of it. I'm one of those guys that goes and buys comics every week when they come out and I love going to conventions. Reading comics woke up my love for drawing. Now I tend to doodle when I should be doing my homework.
I used to be on the SEMO Debate Team and I loved doing it. I enjoy debating at tournaments or at a table with friends and random people. I enjoy politics. I am Liberal while living in a defiantly Red district. It's a cross to bear. I often find myself ranting on Facebook about the crazy right wing/Tea Party stuff people around me say or when friends who are Liberal call me in about crazy stuff they have heard. Is it bad that I enjoy it this much?
I was raised Lutheran and I still am. I am a relaxed Christian. I won't beat you with a Bible and force you to accept God's loving embrace. I believe religious beliefs (or lack thereof) are private things and while I love discussing them, I'm not out to convert people. You pray to your invisible friend (or not) and I will pray to mine.
I have ADHD. On days where I don't take medication for it my mind flies off in every other direction. It can make having a conversation very, well, interesting. My friends say I tend to talk in circles. Basically, while I am talking on a topic something else will pop up in my mind and I will follow that road until another pops up and so on until I eventually reach the end of the story. I guess my mind takes the less conventional path but I get there all the same. It is something I can feel coming on. Sometimes I may briefly mention the side thought and continue on, usually with people I don't know as well.
I do "Rocky Horror" religiously. I am part of a shadow cast and we have been performing since 2008 in Cape Girardeau. I play Eddie.
I currently work full time and I'm going back to college next semester.
I started to exercise recently and while it has been kicking my ass I am really happy with it and proud of myself.
Or, the reason theatre performances are (almost) never scheduled on Mondays is so that the ghosts of the theater can have a day to put on their plays.
