Name: Yami, let's leave it at that. Get to know me better and maybe I'll let you know my real name.
Local: The States, East Coast.
Status: Single, not really looking.
Education: 4th Year of College
Favorite Food: Chinese food in general, minus sushi.I'm a son, a brother, an uncle, an '04 Gaia New Years baby, a fervent friend, an Eagle Scout, and a pretty easy-going guy. But that doesn't mean I'll back down when put to the test. To put it simply, you screw with the bull and you will get the horns.
As it says above, I'm currently single, but not particularly looking at the current moment. In all actuality, I've never had a real relationship, but that's not to say I haven't wanted one. It just seems Karma has other ideas about the idea.
I'm an Otaku. If you don't know what that means, you need to seriously gtf off Gaia. I have an interest in anime and manga, and I go to the convention closest to where I am every summer. In addition, I enjoy video games as well. Go ahead, call me a Dork. I take it as a compliment. biggrin
