Hey there internet, I'm new to the whole blogging scene, but I figured I would give it a shot and see what it's all about. I suppose as my first entry I should probably introduce myself, let the world know the intimate details of my life that for whatever reason we fear to reveal in person, but that's the beauty of the internet isn't it? You can create yourself however you want to, but on a mask in order to be yourself, it's a strange paradox, but I enjoy it.
So first things first, I'm a 20 year old male, born and raised in a little state most people don't ever think about unless their potato shopping called Idaho, I graduated high school with decent grades, but nothing spectacular enough to get any scholarships, so I did the only logical thing I could (please note, that was sarcasm) and joined the Army right after high school as an Infantryman. I've been active duty for almost three years now and while it's hard and sucks at times, I don't regret my decision. I plan on going to school to get my DVM (doctor of veterinary medicine) degree. I love animals and have been set on being a vet when I grow up since I was at least six years old. In the mean time, I'm an aspiring cartoonist in my free time and write a little bit too. Currently I am in the process of getting a webcomic set up, and hope to have the whole thing up and running and updating regularly by this fall/winter. I really do like the storyline I have and I think people will enjoy it, but my artwork still needs to improve and become more consistent before it's ready for the public. If anyone reading this is a semi-talented artist looking for a way to showcase their art, leave a comment letting me know that you're interested with your email and I'll get in touch and send you a sample of the story and you can send me a sample of your work. I would of course not expect you to help me out for free, so I would of course give you a commission for your time and talent. Alright, enough business talk, more about me bwahaha (I'm not normally this narcissistic, I swear). I am not married, but I have been dating someone for quite some time (it really has been a long time since most if not all of my past relationships have crumbled into nothingness after two months) and I honestly couldn't be happier. We compliment each others' strengths and supplement each others' weaknesses and when we argue it's like a clash of the titans hahaha. We're both horrible know-it-alls and refuse to be wrong. Even when one of us realizes what we're doing and just lets it go, the other will still keep arguing their point until someone gets pissed off haha. I don't know how much money I've spent on apology flowers and chocolates over the course of our relationship.
As I already said, I draw and write a little bit in my free time, I also dabble a little bit in music (play the saxophone decently and the guitar poorly) and LOVE just about anything outdoors. I love camping, rock climbing, shooting, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, white water rafting, swimming, snowboarding and pretty much anything else you can do in the mountains and rivers of the northwestern US. I do play video games from time to time, but I'm not very good at most first person shooters, but I do enjoy a good RPG from time to time. I'm not really big on mmo's or online play in general, and I have a hard time playing a game for an extended period of time. Unless you put a Pokémon, Zelda, Sonic or Star Fox game in front of me, then I'll play that game for weeks.
So now that you know a little bit about me, you more or less know what to expect my blog entries to be about, there will be a few that might seem out of place, but those are just random little insights or general observations I've made either recently or throughout my life. I like to think of myself as mostly impartial, since I had a pretty lonely childhood and tend to even now separate myself from others. Well, hopefully I'll get a few people to read this and get a decent following by the time I'm ready to get my website up and running. Please feel free to comment on this or future posts, feedback is always very important and helpful, even if it's negative.
So, I hope to hear from you internet, and until next time,
Thanks for listening to the ramblings of a crazy young 11B
