My my, when on earth did I last update this poor profile? At least a year ago, I am thinking. How saddening. In any case, I am thinking it's about time to update and let you all know who I am. Updated: Monday, August 18, 2012
~ About Me ~
My name is Daniel and I am nineteen years old. I work at Hobby Lobby in Jacksonville, and it's a half decent job. Pays the bills and gets food on the table. Not everyone's dream job, of course, but you do what you gotta do, right? Looking to start school soon for Culinary Arts.

A R T ~ I absolutely love the arts. Now, don't get me wrong. I used to despise it. It's not like I turned into a huge art freak over night. But I decided once when I was at my mom's that I was going to try and sketch. And then, within a couple of days, I had close to a dozen sketches. I know that it's not a lot, but it is, considering I am soooooo not artistic. Currently, and I have not drawn in awhile, I have twenty-two (22) sketches drawn. I am also huge on poetry, having written over a hundred poems myself in the course of a single year.
W R I T I N G ~ No, I do not consider poetry in the same boat as writing. I am huge on roleplaying, which has been the primary inspiration behind my desire to write. I have tried writing a novel eight different times and failed epically every single time simply because I could not think of a central plot. However, I am finally coming up with a plot that I am excited about and looking forward to writing. I owe it to my friend, Anne, for creating her roleplay The Book of Paradise, as well as my friend Kat, for creating her roleplay Savage Heart, both of which gave me such a strong inspiration for my writing.
M U S I C ~ I sing. Kind of. Courtney loves my singing. But in all truth, I tend to avoid singing around anyone anymore because back in... Was it seventh grade? Or eighth? Either way, my chorus teacher told me I was tone deaf. I know, right? I mean, I used to love singing. And my sister would make fun of me, saying that I was howling. But I loved it. Now, unless I am at church, I try to avoid singing around people. At least in English. I can sing in Spanish all I want around people, primarily because if I hit a note wrong, you're not gonna know unless you know how it should sound.

I am going to make one thing very clear. I am Christian. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. I am devoted to my Lord and my God. If you have any issues with my beliefs, then do not bother speaking to me. I would love to preach that word of God to each and every one of you, but only if you wish to hear it. I am not one of those people who will cram everything down your throat. Jesus told us to preach the Word to all creatures. I am willing to do that if said creatures would only listen.
