About

well, I'm not quite sure what to put in here... but I am currently a stay at home college graduate. I graduated in 2007 with a degree in Mathematics, but couldn't find a decent job. So, after 3 years working a dead end job, I finally decided to quit work and go back to school. I am currently taking some classes, trying to get an actuary certificate.

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all it's contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not ment that we voyage far... but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation, or flee from the deadly light into the peace and saftey of a new dark age." -H.P. Lovecraft "The call of Cthulhu"

I am a very shy and reserved person. In fact, one of my coworkers had went as far as to say "you know... in the ten months you've been here, I would be lying if I said that I've heard you say more than 100 words." The character trait that I like the most about myself is my patience. My biggest flaws are 1) I tend to let people walk all over me and 2) I don't get angry... even when the situation calls for it. it seems that not getting angry is unhealthy for me... or so I'm told anyways.

"Having lost these artificial settings, their lives grew void of direction and dramatic interest, till at legnth they strove to drown their ennui in bustle and pretend usefulness, noise and excitement, barbaric display and animal sensation... Never could they realize that... the satisfaction of one moment is the bane of the next. Calm, lasting beauty comes only in a dream, and this solace the world had thrown away when in its worship of the real it threw away the secrets of childhood and innocence" -H.P. Lovecraft "The Silver Key"

I love playing video games, but I haven't had time to dive into a good game lately. I'm a fan of the final fantasy series... even though there hasn't been a good final fantasy game since FF9. I am currently playing "Resident Evil 6", even though I've beaten it countless times already. I recently played "Star Ocean: The Last Hope" for the 360 and loved that game. I also finished "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow". Unlike most Castlevania games, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when the ending cinema finally finished. I also like guitar hero... and I love to read. Despite what my quotes may imply, H.P. Lovecraft isn't my favorite author... I just happen to have read one of his books. My favorite author, instead, is Neil Gaiman... with "American Gods" being my favorite book.

Neil Gaiman is a good author. 3nodding Yeah, sad ending sad . Have you watched the movie of Stardust? They changed the ending, but I think it’s still good.
