So Hobbies,

I have several but some of my favorites are Writing (I really need to find time to pick this up again!). I've written some fan fictions like for Dexter about the character Lumen Pierce, and even had an article for a year called Street Sense where I gave advice to people who wrote into me.

I run a small cattery, it started off as just rescuing them from going to the pound and being put down and turned into so much more than that. It's a lot of work but it's really rewarding.

I make new Role Play systems for my friends. They aren't as in depth as some may make, but serve a purpose. Most recent was a rule system for the reality shows Big Brother and Survivor. We're kinda addicted to reality TV around here.

Lastly, the newest one would be I just started Drag. I made my first appearance at a Rocky Horror Picture Show event in town. It was actually a huge deal that we had this event because of the nature of the town so I ended up on the front page of the paper. I'll share a picture below. I made the clothes and boots myself, did my own makeup which is impossible to see in the picture, and yes..I got a bit fatter than I used to be, lol.

I like your boots, teepo. I went through a cross-dressing phase myself, triggered when a friend told me that I can "really look the part," which is I guess his way of saying that I have a girly face. XD I hopped out of it after a while. The makeup and the wigs were just too much effort.

Coffee is a staple of life. Absolutely. I make it a hobbie to spend 5 minutes with my Keurig every morning.

Boo. I tried to submit a video, but it didn't work.

I tested for my 2nd dan this past Saturday. 5 years of training culminated in one heck of a difficult test.

WAT.

Dangit man! So many good things in the next few months! I want dis + yarn mentioned before (I purchased a hook in the event I felt classy enough to upgrade from knitting once I finished this project), FALLOUT 4 I had yet to preorder is now released and then Lamb of God just announced a tour with Anthrax that I clearly need to impulse purchase because what if tickets sell out and I can't go like Kamelot/Dragonforce did? WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT KAMELOT/DRAGONFORCE WOULD HAVE SOLD OUT. They didn't in Oregon when I lived there three years, in fact I had plenty of room to STRETCH in the venue!

...Ahem...end of rambling. :)

Dan is japanese for degree, or level. I tested for my 2nd degree black belt in Kyukido, a relatively new Korean mixed martial art.

I ordered this a bunch of months ago then they emailed to tell me it was out of stock and wouldn't be back in for ages. Forgot all about it until now.
