My self-summary
Well, I've gone through a pretty radical change in life recently. I used to be a goth, part of a goth-punk-rock band down in Northern California called Raging Requiem.

2 years ago I was driving home with a friend. It was raining, and rather dark outside. As I drove over a ridge, all I remember was bright lights and screaming. I woke up in a hospital, my left eye bandaged up and my left wrist in a cast. A drunk driver in a pick-up truck had hit my Honda Civic head-on. I was lucky to be alive, with only a scarred face and a fucked up left wrist. My friend and the other driver weren't.

Took me about a year to fully recover. In that time, I realized that my life was in desperate need of change. Unable to rejoin the band due to my wrist (I can't and will never be able to drum as fast I used to), even unable to understand what we sang and stood for as a band, I packed up and moved to Portland were a cousin of mine offered me a job. Got "promoted" while ago, or so like my cousin likes to joke. Instead of just being a grunt for the grunts, running errands and stuff, I actually work in the warehouse itself. Moving boxes full of random crap is harder then you think!

I'm still a somewhat of a goth both inside and out, that part will never change. But now I see the world for what it really is, not what I think it is. You know what? It's not as dark as I thought.

I'm looking for people to meet, to be close to, even just to talk to. You can't be alone in this world, not anymore. I'm new to the area, so I need all the help I can get.

I'm Loud, Proud, and Handsome... in a jigsaw sort of way XD
What I’m doing with my life
I got a job working of a cousin of mine. It's not much, just running some errands and such, but its money in the pocket (or in the bank) and it's better then nothing. I'm sure I'll find something better, I just need time to settle in.

I'm trying to find a band, but I don't think I'll succeed. Doesn't matter right now anyway, as much as it seems/feels it does.
I’m really good at
Music. I play the drums, I can sing, and play the keyboards. Still working on the last one, but it's getting easier and easier. I love it.

I'm also a decent cook, being forced to do all the cooking for a seven-piece band back in Cali. I can't make anything too complex, but I got the basics down pat.

Dancing! No, okay, that's a lie, I suck. But it's fun!
The first things people usually notice about me
My face. I got in a car crash, and came back with a few party gifts as you will... so lets just say Scarface has nothing on me. :-P

My wrist. I wear a wrist brace all the time, even to bed. Only time I take it off is to shower.

I say what I think, so I can seem pretty blunt. I don't like to lie, so why should I say one thing when I mean the other?

I also tend to talk pretty fast. Always have, always will.

Hmmm, what else? OH! Right, the Mohawk. That's a pretty obvious one. I don't know if I'll be keeping it for much longer though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like b-movies. Either the good ones that did a great job with such a small budget, or the ones that are just so horribly bad they're hilarious.

I like all music. Any genre. Any style. Any time. I just happen to play punk-hard-rock.

I'll also eat anything. I mean -anything-! I had to learn to gag down my own first attempts at cooking, so I'm sure after that there is nothing in the entire world I couldn't at least taste. Well, maybe...
Six things I could never do without
1. Photo of my Mother (oh shush >.<)

2. Some sort of music (well, maybe not polka, but just about anything else would do)

3. H20, aka: Aqua

4. Someone to talk to

5. My life (without it I'd be kinda dead)

6. I'll let you decide my sixth. Sharing is caring after all
I spend a lot of time thinking about
As much as I humanly can without my mind melting and leaking out of my ears. I hate doing nothing, thinking about nothing, always gotta have something going on... expect when I want to go to sleep. Which I don't do too often.

I also think about my wrist. My left wrist got fucked up really badly in the crash. Part of the reason why my life's been flipped around. I can't drum nearly half as well as I used to. I miss being able to fully use it more then anything in the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to have as much fun as possible. Life is for the living, so might as well live it up!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Yeah, I used to be emo. I used to think the world hated me and there was no escape. I thought about ending it all.

But that's behind me and I'm not going back. Ever.
You should message me if
Heck, if you can think of a reason, that reason should be in this paragraph. Just fire away, I'm eager to meet anyone and everyone. Hope to talk to you soon. That's right. I'm talking to YOU!
The two of us
