Before you ask, as many do. Yes. I am Sang. It means I do partake of blood. If you have questions, I will answer them, as long as they are posed in a respectful manner. I've been a Sang for so long, I don't remember when I wasn't. However, that's a long story.
I have lived in Missouri most of my life. I lived in Iowa for a couple of years, but, for some reason, I seemed to migrate back to Missouri. I'm not big on change. I guess you tend to stay where you grew up. I'd happily move to another place, if the right circumstance arose.
I tend to be somewhat anti-social real life, however, on the computer, it's a different story. I'm not sure why that is. I suppose I can let the real persona come out, which in some cases, might scare the shit out of you. Real life situations, concerning people? Seems everyone tends to put up a front, when I'd rather have the real person show me who they are.
Be honest with me, because I'll always tell you like it is. You may not like to hear what I have to say, but, I won't pull any punches. I have very few friends, it's a choice that I make. I don't much care to let people too close. I find that at some point, most people will cause you to feel that sharp pain between your shoulder blades. Does that make me a cynic? Possibly. You decide.
I do have one special friend here on Vampire Rave. Her name is WolfInTheMyst, and, we've been living together in real life since December of 2012. I'm not sure why, but, it seems from the moment we met, we just seemed to click. This person doesn't pull any bullshit. We've had some interesting discussions, as well as some “heated” debates. I guess that's what makes this person a mystery
I consider myself eccentric. I do things others dare not. Why say you? Simply, because I can. I like living outside the norm, but then, what is the "Norm?" Some say one thing, others say another. We all live according to our own plan, as well as our own rules. These can be simple, or quite complicated, it all depends on you. I can look at you and say:
See? I don't feel bad at all. Please feel to return the favor, if you are so inclined! As I said, I'd much rather you speak your mind, than fill me with some bullshit.
Now, for those on Vampire Rave that know me, the next graphic won't be a surprise at all. For those of you looking at this profile. You are going to look at it and go. "Damn, another pervert." Only a few here really know me. As I said, I don't let many very close. If you have weaseled your way past all of my walls, then, consider yourself very lucky indeed. That's quite an accomplishment!
My favorite drink is Patron Tequila, however, I do enjoy good Absinthe. I do love my booze. I have, however, curbed my boozing appetite while enjoying my time on Vampire Rave.
You see, there was this infamous "cam" incident. I was having quite a good time, shooting Patron Silver tequila on cam one evening, washing it down with beer. Alas, I became rather "three sheets to the wind." For some odd reason, things, well, they became somewhat cloudy after a bit.
I was told, the next day, by my closest friend, that I was calling her by a name other than her own. Ah yes, this is something one should NEVER do. Call a female by other than her given name. Not that it upset her mind you, well, I don't THINK it did, not in this situation. However? This story was posted in the Sci-Fi groups. I have to admit, it's somewhat funny now, but alas, I felt rather embarrassed when it occurred.
By the way? Should you have any Absinthe that you are not drinking? Or, just feel the need to get rid of, do drop me a note? Heh
My main profession and training is in the field of Electronics. However, after graduation, I specialized in computers, later working in Information Technology.
I began working on computers in 1984. Many of you now, won't even remember those old IBM units. They had a 12 inch orange monochrome monitor. 5-1/4 inch floppy drive, and, 256 K, yes K, as in kilobytes of RAM. Those units cost you right at four thousand dollars. What amazing technology it was. Just look at where we have evolved for computer technology.
After graduating and getting my degree in Electronics, I took a job as Chief Engineer at a group of radio stations. The year was 1984. I made a whopping ten thousand dollars, and was glad to get it. I was oh so tired of eating those damn beans and weenies while in school. LOL I worked at this station for about three years, then, was offered a position teaching Electronics in Kirksville. I did so enjoy teaching. I was however, a total bastard in the classroom.
Bastard you say? Oh indeed. I was tough. I fought the Board Of Regents tooth and nail. You see, for some silly reason, I thought I was training my students for a career in life. This was a time, when teachers were not so much accountable as they are today. I however, re-wrote the entire course, top to bottom. It included about three thousand competencies that I required you to know, just to pass my class.
Finals week? A total bitch in my class. I'm not sure you would have enjoyed attending. Beginning to end, I would have had you answer three thousand questions. You might have hated me as an instructor, but, I guarantee, when you left my class, you knew what the fuck you were doing.
I continued teaching for five years. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in life. However, the politics with the Board Of Regents asking me to cut back my requirement, with me refusing to do so, simply became too much. I apparently was doing something correct, as I was later asked to serve on the state board to establish core requirements for all Electronics classes in the state of Missouri.
I do tend to get bored rather easily. I don't like the idea of staying at one job your entire life. I think to be well rounded, you need a variety of life experiences. Therefore, when I was afforded the opportunity, to work as a prison guard or Correctional Officer, I jumped at the chance. A truly amazing experience. You may call me insane, however, I enjoyed the idea that anything could happen at any time. I have had numerous attempts on my life, while working as a Correctional Officer. The adrenaline rush...nothing like it.
Now, in mid-life, I find I still want to do many things. However, current circumstances keep me from moving on, doing some of the things that I want to do. We shall see what life continues to bring. Who knows.
It's a bit ironic, really. I find myself, working again, at the same group of broadcast stations that began my professional career all those years ago. I am currently the Chief Engineer at this group, as well as the morning drive personality, from 6 to 10 a.m. Talk about completing circles.
Thanks for stopping by.
