I play guitar, poorly. I'm more interested in blabbing ideally at odd times in the morning. I'm currently studying Literature and Education, but I'm also highly interested in cultural anthropology and political science. I'm an ultra liberal, boarding on socialist. I believe strongly in social justice, and giving a voice to those that have none. I'm a vegetarian, and yes, I know PETA is composed mostly of nut-jobs. That said, humane conditions for farm animals should be an attainable, reasonable goal , but it will never be accomplished by ridiculing Nintendo DS games about cooking.
Otherwise I'm just a nerd. I enjoy P&P gaming, playing MMOs with my E-Friends, etc. When not wasting my time with nerdy-nerd stuff I do occasionally do the "whole practice guitar thing", but I'm absolutely terrible. I even occasionally attempt to talk to pretty girls, and usually fail miserably. I'm a very awkward person, really. I'm a straight guy that enjoys well made, or written romances, which is probably the proverbial cherry to top the awkwardness.
