28 year-old male from Midland, MI
I am an Eagle Scout, a geek, and a few other things. I am a proud believer in Jesus, though a very bad example of a good Christian. I can come off creepy and morbid, but generally a decent and upstanding man. I have three younger sisters. I play the violin. I like history, science, weaponry, bicycling, shooting, camping, tying knots and playing with rope. Politically I fall more in line with the libertarians. I often come off as cold or sometimes arrogant and aloof, but that is unintentional and mainly due to my lack of interpersonal skills. I only bite when threatened.

phiblex and ryukyu warriorI just got back from three weeks in the Philippines. Military exercise, and such. I'm really drunk right now, so writing is difficult. I'm currently listening t o Falconer, which is an amazing band, which the two of you watching me should check out. One of the things I love about them is the vocals range, which as a baritone I love because I can sing along..I'm off to another exercise soon. I'm excited because I get to play infantry for the next two weeks, maybe fix radios for the next two weeks too. I did so while I was in the Philippines, so why not on on this op as well? Overall I'm unsatisfied, but I have only myself to blame. Maybe I'll be better this next time. I read 8 books on my kindle on the last training operation, so why not buy three more to read for this next one. I bought two books on Arabic language and another on Japanese language, I plan on learning another language while I'm out there. Hopefully I'll pass the fluency test after all is said and done. I wish I had been more active on the site. Did I mention that one of our corpsmen offered to pay me for a tattoo design when I was on the last op? Well he did. I hope to finish the artwork before long. So far her likes what I have done. I hope to share the finished product. Well, since I'm drunk I'll cut it short. I hope to be more coherent next time, you know, not drunk.
