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.

Too many variables. Plans within plans. Wheels within wheels. Conflict upon conflict since…"
""We've seen dynasties in Africa, America, and the Middle East fall after a tedious, conflict ridden rule"
Yeah but we've also seen the Alawites walk away from these types of things stronger than ever before. See Assad…"
"And how do you propose we distinguish between them, and those simply fleeing their homes in search of refuge?
Lebanon and Turkey take in millions of refugees each year. Europe needs to suck it up a bit and do their part. "
"Because, you know, they wouldn't be fleeing the region if it was a stable, happy land, right? ISIS and their ilk are a big part of the refugee crisis, which is neither an 'invasion' nor full of 'islamic extremists'. I…"
