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 educational background is in psychology, and I may or may not decide to pursue a career in counseling or education. I am an avid fan of video games, horror movies, and anything to do with fictional end-of-the-world scenarios. I also enjoy tabletop roleplaying games.For various reasons my path in life has meandered quite a bit. I hope that by…See More
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.

My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years. After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together. She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together. She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin. Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
"Id say we get pubic hair in our early teens and then spend the rest of our lives figuring out what it means to be a man. Enjoy the journey. Initiation and mentoring help, along with maintaining life-long male friendships, which is quite…"
"I watched the yiannopoulosm video and one quote caught my attention: in an outrage culture, it pays to be outrageous. He and Donald Trump are more about their personal brands than anything substantial. The divisism of both may have…"
"There is an inherent rift in Christianity behind this blasphemy. Jesus spoke of "we" and "all are one" blind to differences, but Paul said to speak to people to tell them what they want to hear (my own…"
"I'll admit to sometimes browsing Tinder (which is maybe a different crowd than Christian Mingle, but there are a lot Christians). I usually just send a setup to a joke. They have to respond to get the punchline, so it gets some back and forth…"
