There's clearly not much to say. I am a dork. Really, I'm okay with that. I am obsessed with knowledge and people who are lazy about that issue baffle me. To this day, I don't understand how ANYONE can think they have a valid point if they haven't researched their own perspective... let alone the counter-idea. Using this logic... is it any wonder why I am hoping to be a lawyer? I have a BA in Religion and am hoping to get a BA in English before getting my JD. Ultimately? I'd like to work for the DOJ as either an ADA or a DA but... that's a little in the future. For now? I work at BBY... and work my ass off!
Oh.. something I may bring up ocassionaly- I am disabled. Kind of. To look at me, to talk to me (usually) hell... to love me--- you might not ever know. But I kind of am. I have Fibromyalgia. Translation: I am in absoluetly constant pain that is (more often than I will EVER let on) quite close to completely debilitating. I used to... do so many things. I danced. I played the cello. I was a competitive swimmer. I was a professional actor (3 movies so far). I wrote for the Church Newsletter. I ran hurdles. I played tennis and basketball. My life used to be so filled with activity. Now... sometimes it's a struggle to walk. BUT... it just proves a theory: Get as much enjoyment out of every day as you can find... because not everyday may have any.
Or... to be truer to my BA..... it reminds me of a wise Jewish man who was teaching his children. He told them, "Forgive anyone who has ever wronged you five days before you die!" His eldest looked back at him and said, "But... there's no way to know when you're going to die." His father looked at him with compassion and love and said: "Exactly!"
ORIGINAL DIARIST FRONT PAGE COMMENTS:
Originally Written December 28, 2008:
I am an avid RoosterTeeth.com user; however, I feel that their posting board is more appropriate for short blerbs, video game comments, mini updates... more a passing conversation area than the forum for ridiculously deep and/or embarassingly nerdy slef expression. Thus: TA DA! You may not understand or agree with a lot of what I have to say... but let me warn you: individuals that respond only with emotional, illogical, or any form of rhetoric unsupported by fact and evidence will receive nothing but my disdain or pity. I may be a cold harded bastard sometimes, but without face-to-face interaction... all we have is black & white words... information... which is why I strongly believe the only truly constructive use of a forum like this is for the give and take of information and opinion supported by research. MOre or less :-p Of course, I don't always follow my own advice- but who does?!
Really- I can be a great guy. Funny... weird as hell (trust me, when I was young and still had energy more than one person feared I was some unholy combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carey)... and open hearted. Read if you wish, comment if you want.... but don't expect me to treat everything everyone says as important or pertinent.
