I'm pretty quiet sometimes, until you get me into a good conversation. I once was trying to get into the social work program at SVSU. At this point it looks more and more likely that I will attempt to go get the degree (at Sacred Heart Seminary) I would need to be in full-time Catholic Lay Ministry. Probably for adults. That, my friend, is why I moved downstate a couple of years ago from my previous living-arrangements in Saginaw, and even more formerly West Branch. Last year I moved out of a lovely trailer park to rent a room from a guy in a pretty nice house, and soon, off to another house with my friend and his family in Troy.... Sometimes I still think I would like to work with youth, even though I may be too "reserved" for it. On the other hand, I suppose I have a childlike/adolescent side.
I have had a rough couple of years and going back to school doesn't always agree with me. I am taking this semester off from seminary to discern becoming Byzantine Catholic, and I have no idea if I should get the same degree I started or if there is any job I could get with it. But I will do something mildly useful sooner or later, you just wait! I've just taken longer than most to find my niche. I still want to spread the love of God, even though I've got to question the guy//force/being.
I like singing, writing, and theology... I once won a five dollar gift-card to Little Caesars for singing in a talent show. Impressive, I know. And I once won $20 for writing a poem from the perspective of a slice of bologna in a refrigerator. Oh, and another $100 for singing, but that was yeeeeaaaarrrs ago.
I'm also pretty proud of the time I hung out at a bar with Franc D'Ambrosio, one of the longest running Phantom's of the Opera in the world. I stood up and sang for him in front of everybody, and he paid for everyone's food and drinks.
Otherwise... making a considerable effort to nail down my degree and my future, considering becoming Orthodox-Byzantine-Catholic, working for Papa Johns (making and delivering Pizzas which I have no desire to eat myself. Yuck.) hanging out with my friends... boy, I have to go do more stuff so that I have something better to say here. Be right back!
I also made a Star Trek meme that a few thousand people liked.
Movies: I do like my movies... The Adjustment Bureau, Les Miserables, The Dark Knight, Into Temptation, The Last Word, Avengers, The Truman Show, The Black Dahlia, X-Men: First Class, Shadowlands, James Bond (only Craig). I have to remember that, thanks to the stupid new movie series, just because you say you like "Star Trek" doesn't mean that you actually like Star Trek at all.. the same goes for Gerard Butler's wretched, infernal, disgusting abomination of an excuse for a Phantom of the Opera movie. (vomits violently)
Music: Broadway, Christian, Eastern Orthodox Chant, random songs from every genre imaginable... From Metallica, to Taylor Swift, to Billy Joel... Yeah, I've got that.
Hmmm as for TV I really don't watch much new TV but I love to relive my favorite classics such as Frasier, Star Trek (AAAll of them), The Office.. I have to admit, I was captivated by NBC's "Hannibal". But it was just too convoluted, violent, and pretentious, and I'm glad it's over... because I know I can't resist it anytime there is a new episode!!! :P
4. The Phantom of the Opera
5. YOUR MOM. Yeah, I said it.
Occasionally I will trek all the way to Christ the King Parish in Ann Arbor for the charismatic prayer meeting. Hopefully this will develop since I am, for now, in Livonia.
Or if you have any desire at all to do so.
if you're a Catholic or Christian who's firmly rooted in Yeshua but not a redneck about it. If you find me interesting as a person to be friends with, regardless of race, creed, origin, gender, religion, Marvel/DC affiliation, favorite doctor, or total lack thereof of any or all of the above. I'm actually pretty easy to talk to. My profile may seem intensely religious, but I'm pretty easy to talk to, and like to understand different people.
Heck, right about now I'd settle just for someone to make out. So sue me, it's been a while.
