@bellison tagged me in this five facts-a-ma-jig and I tend to find these interesting sooo here goes :D I apologize if some of this is sappy

1. I made machinima in High School (like my friend Allie) I didn't have 2000 subscribers like her, but I do have a crappily made Halo video of Star Wars: Obi Wan v. Anakin. It was before I had a capture device and it's so bad, but it has over 40,000 views and that's an accomplishment to me. I made smaller videos after that, tried a series (deleted it because I was embarrassed my "Real" friends would find it) and made 2 halo infection videos and a music video to Around the World. Yes, it's probably exactly what you think it is.

2. I have a knack for counseling I didn't go to school to exactly be a counselor, but I fall in this weird middle ground where if I play my cards right, it could happen. I used to counsel prison inmates in anger & stress management without any real certification. I was never nervous when I was with them, I just felt so natural and respected, everyone there listened to the advice that me, a 20/21 year old kid was saying to these inmates who were my age - 35 years old. I got placed into it by mere coincidence and after the first day one of the inmates looked at me and said, "Are you sure you're not certified to do this?"

3. I'm an adventurer The past 4 out of 5 years, I have tackled new things and broadened my personal horizons with my best friend Jonathan Chung (who is not on this site). 2010 I joined my High School's senior play which was Seussical the Musical. I loved every bit of it and it felt so joyful to be able to entertain hundreds of people. I was in the ensemble and I was proud to Woof all over the stage. 2012 I went skydiving. I have a video of me skydiving in my batman shirt. Surprisingly, I only got a little nervous when we were between 5000 & 8000 feet. Once we opened the door to go out and I saw the ground, I was so pumped. It was one of the most relaxing and exciting things I have ever done. I felt completely weightless. In 2012/2013 I started to really work-out and become fit. It was mostly motivation from a recent break-up, but hey it worked. I got so fit I did a mud-run called a Rugged Maniac which was a 5k. Chung and I finished in the top 10 of our heat and we fought through the heat and mud. This past year in 2014, I did my first Cosplay of Cosmo and Wanda with my lovely girlfriend @MLGKatie at NYCC. It was a great time and we even got to meet-up with some of Rtny. All of these things have helped me learn new things about myself, and what I really like to do.

4. I love driving and nature It soothes and calms me, even if i'm tired I can get a jolt from driving every now and then. I've drove 13 hours straight to Illinois and I look forward to making more road trips in the future. I just came back from a tiny road trip with some of Rtny. I love scenery when I drive and i just feel like nothing bad can happen to me when I'm driving (although I know that's not true). I tend to sit at waterfronts when the weather gets nice and lay in the snow when it's a little cold out. I spent my 20th birthday with just one friend, sitting at a waterfront near my home, wondering why the world is the way it is.

5. Mass Effect is a very big part of my life It may seem silly to some, but when I say it's a big part of my life, I mean the experiences I have from that game have helped shape me into the person I am today. I started Mass Effect in the very beginning, the Christmas right after it came out in November of 2007. I played it, fell in love (not with the Mako though) and replayed it over and over again. I've beaten each game on Insanity (a feat I am very proud of) Whenever someone in the "real" world mentions Mass Effect or is wearing anything Mass Effect related I freak out. I could literally talk hours on end about Mass Effect and then some. Mass Effect has shown me light where there was darkness, shown me friends where I never imagined and brought me into a world that was always expanding. I went to Mass Effect when my friends would make fun of me for being a, "nub" or a "no-life" because I always wanted to play my video games. Video games never made fun of me though, they just taught me how to be a better person, and as most people who probably play Mass Effect, I always modeled my Shepard after who I wanted to be and I like to think I'm slowly becoming that person. I've learned that the world is not black-and-white. There's a lot of gray.

So, that's a few parts of me. Please, anyone and everyone feel free to do this. I love reading about friends :)
