Nemo me impune lacessit. (No one provokes me with impunity.)
Well, comparing the rating I have now to the rating I had before I updated this thing, apparently straight and to the point was even worse than I had imagined. Having already jumped through your metaphorical hoops to provide a more interesting and ADD-friendly profile for your enjoyment, I now continue in my quest for a more worthy profile. I have finished for now, but one day I shall return, and the updatage shall be mighty. Till then, enjoy.
First and foremost, I'd like to say that I am now, who I have always been. Self-possessed, discerning, and too smart for my own good, I ask questions that no one wants to answer. I engage in discussions because I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. In bygone days I would have been a philosopher and spent all my time reading and debating with a group of scholars. But unfortunately that's no longer a viable career choice, so I settle for spending my spare time on the Internet, doing the same thing.
My current age is 20, though I neither look, nor act my age. I find that most people my age seem to look and act like idiots, so that shouldn't be a big surprise. Actually, I often find myself feeling old. I always believed that when you could honestly say that in your day, music was better, gas was cheaper, and kids were more polite it was time to find yourself a rocking chair and start knitting. I expect to finish my scarf early next week.
I like every type of music, but the content has an effect on whether I enjoy a particular song. I specifically enjoy classic rock, techno, Fifties music, swing, J-rock, J-pop, classical, heavy metal, and folk songs. Bands I enjoy are Dir en Grey, Antique Café, Yum!Yum!ORANGE, Green Day, Nirvana, AC/DC, Prozzac, Queen, The Supremes, and Fool's Garden. I love Elliot Smith, I like Alanis Morrisette, and I can't get enough Weird Al.
I watch a bit of tv, a lot of anime, and not many movies. I read manga, go to conventions, play some video games, and like to use my sewing machine. I like to write, and I try to draw. I spend most of my online time posting to forums. When I'm out of the house, I get my exercise playing DDR (I freestyle on Light), walking out in the woods, riding my bike, and having random 'sword' fights with my friends. When I'm bored, I find ways entertain myself. As you can see, I am not just a geek, I am Geek².
I'm fairly well-read, wittily sarcastic, and find modesty to be the last refuge of the incompetent. My only true fear is that I might one day descend to the levels of stupidity that I see on an every day basis. I am open-minded, and I always try to see the other side of an argument, even if I don't agree with it. I think everyone has the right to do what suits them best, provided it does not overly conflict with other peoples well-being. I dislike people who attempt to force their beliefs on other people, because it is a sign of insecurity and they are inevitably unable to support their views. I don't expect people not to label me. I know it's going to happen, so I prefer to simply give enough information for the label to be accurate.
I was raised using the English language, therefore I make every attempt to use it correctly. In fact, I pride myself on the ability to use grammar and complete sentences to express myself, unlike so many of my peers who seem unable to even use complete words. I tend not to chatter excessively, but I thrive on discussion, and could spend hours talking about nearly anything, so long as it was interesting. I can sometimes go on scathing rants but seldom intend any actual insult to anybody. When I do, you'll know. In reality, I play the Devil's advocate just for the joy of arguing a point.
That is not all the information I could give on myself. It is what I thought was most pertinent and interesting to the people here. If I find I need to add to it again later, I will do so. But for now, I certainly hope it was enough to appease your voyeuristic desire to know more of the delicious inner-workings of my life.
