Nice to meet all of you. I am a native Southerner (although if you ask my family we'll say we're German) moving to Colorado to begin my Master's degree.

My big projects right now are learning to play the guitar, teaching myself German and Japanese, and writing a novella. I would like to start getting into better shape and learning some survival skills.
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, and Watership Down by Richard Adams are my all time favorites. There are far too many others that I enjoy to list.
I enjoy horror movies quite a bit. It's crass, but my favorites are probably The Devil's Rejects and House of 1,000 Corpses. The Poughkeepsie Tapes is also excellent.
Right now I'm listening to a lot of My Chemical Romance. My younger sister is a big fan of theirs and I've begun to develop a taste for them. I also enjoy The Moody Blues, Gin Blossoms, and Jimmy Buffet.
Go forth and set the world on fire.

Gents, I'm on Day 3 of the 30 day Be a Better Man quest. Just a quick update:Day 1: Core Values.This was a tough one for me. In the AF, we have a set of core values drilled into us. It took some real soul searching and understanding that it was okay to be different. 1. Be genuine. I haven't always walked around without a mask, but I've always tried to be genuine to who I am. Integrity, Actions, Sincerity all go hand in h...and with that.2. Empathy. Use it and keep an open mind. 3. Self…See More
"Lawyer, separation (why on earth is she still around him this much?), restraining order if needed. If he violates that restraining order, she should immediately call the cops, and be prepared to shoot him if he threatens violence."
"Mostly what I've noticed is the people who own those "Pavement Princesses" don't wave.

"Support your sister by supporting your sister ... not by beating the asshole senseless. Might be momentarily satisfying, but unless its self-defense, you'll make things worse. You'll land in jail. You'll get the…"
