I'm a college student who is currently working for a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, helping with their IT.  I'm majoring in Computer Science, focusing on Technology.

I love to play video games.  I can usually be found playing either logical-problem solving titles such as the Ace Attorney series or creative/life-simulation games like Minecraft or The Sims.

You play Minecraft?  I happen to host a server.  If you like to build things and would like to join in on the fun, leave me a comment.  Currently the server's status is:

I’ve enjoyed playing video games for quite some time, so it is hard to say which one was my first. When I think back to which might have been the first game I played I always remember The Lion King for the Sega Genesis. I was only four years old when it released, but I remember playing this game for hours on end. I haven’t played anything on the Genesis for many years, but I did love that little machine.


In The Lion King video game you started out in the jungle as cub-Simba. The enemies were mostly adorable little insects that probably served no real threat to the future king-of-the-jungle. In fact the game has very little point (other than pouncing on innocent creatures) before Scar knocks Mufasa off the cliff into the stampeding savannah animals. In fact, the Stampede level was one of the most difficult in the entire game (especially for a four year old). Not only were you being run down by large animals, there were rocks approaching you at high speeds from the front. One had to both dodge the animals trying to stomp on you and the boulders scattered about the ground. As the levels progressed Simba aged, until he grew into the near-clone of his father. The level of difficulty increased quite a bit after Simba grows up; the enemies are no longer little bugs, but rather hyenas and other beasts that followed Scar. Simba’s attack arsenal expands to include a swipe of his claws alongside his previous pounce.

Moving away from the actual gameplay, The Lion King video game followed the movie’s storyline fairly accurately. Every major event which occurred in the movie had a level to correspond with it. The music in the game was an almost direct rip from the film’s soundtrack (except in a midi-format—after all, the Genesis never had an amazing sound quality).

I will always cherish The Lion King as my first video game. Even though it was released in 1994, it was still an amazingly fun game. It remained true to the movie (unlike many games based on films today) and allowed you to experience the story as if you truly were Simba.

Today I adopted a fairly little African Msobo Cichlid named Fred. He's an awfully cute little guy, he's a golden yellow hyperactive fish. Fred's hobbies include swimming in and out of his log and rearranging the gravel (piece by piece).
Currently I'm keeping Fred in a 20 gallon aquarium. His decor includes his little log-shaped cave, some hot pink plants, and two marimo (about 2-2.5 in in diameter).
Apparently males tend to lose their yellowish color with age, but this little guy hasn't so far. Unless Fred is actually a Freda, that is. But from what I can tell, Fred has only displayed the male behavior traits of digging holes to protect. I haven't seen him doing anything specifically "female" yet.

The blank one is here. If you wanna do this, I suggest picking your characters before you read my answers... (It'd give it away if you read this first.)

I'm picking Rurouni Kenshin, for the lolz.  The manga, not the anime (since the manga has WAYYY better characters later on...)


Choose ten of your favorite characters from THE SAME cartoon/anime/other in random order WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE GOD DAMNED QUESTIONS FIRST and fill them out. OCs don't really work, but if you wanna... :/

1. Enishi Yukishiro

2. Sanosuke Sagara

3. Misao Makamichi

4. Saito Hajime

5. Aoshi Shinomori

6. Kenshin Himura

7. Souzou Sagara

8. Cheif Uramura

9. Inui Banjin

10. Yahiko Myoujin

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

1) Which would you rather choose, Six/Three or Six/Ten?
Kenshin/Misao or Kenshin/Yahiko...
Neither, honestly!  But Kenshin/Misao would be better than the other... >.<


2) Do you think Seven/Two will ever happen?
Souzou/Sanosuke....  Lololol.  Welllll... Back in the day before Souzou got offed... It kinda <i>did</i> happen... in some sick, demented way.  *is so wrong*


3) Have you ever read or written Four/Five?
Saito/Aoshi.
No...  but now I want to read one.  D:

4) Nine and One are getting married. How does Eight react?
Inui/Enishi + Cheif Uramura
Uramura'd probably yell "You're under arrest" and take them both into custody... since they're both fellons and all that jazz...

5) Write a plot for a Two/Ten fic.
Sanosuke/Yahiko.
Lol, nty...

6) How would Nine announce to Seven he/she's pregnant, and what would Seven do/say?
Inui and Souzou...
Inui is a guy, but if it were possible he'd probably yell it.  And Souzou is dead... so Inui would be yelling at the sky, and nothing would happen?


7) Does the pairing One/Two exist? How about Three/Five?
Enishi/Sanosuke - Probably
Misao/Aoshi - Most certainly


8) Pretend you're writing a story with this plot: "Eight and Two are about to get married when suddenly Three admits his feelings for Two. Two decides to leave Eight and gets married with Three. Eight, inconsolable, has an unhappy affair with Seven and Six and in the end, finally realizes his true love is and has always been Five." Would anyone read this?
Cheif Uramura and Sanosuke are about to get married when suddenly Misao admits her feelings for Sano. Sano decides to leave Cheif Uramura and gets married with Misao. Cheif Uramura, inconsolable, has an unhappy affair with Souzou and Kenshin and in the end, finally realizes his true love is and has always been Aoshi.
Lol.  It would be the worst plot ever.  But I'd read it for the lolz.


9) Is Six/Seven okay with you or do you wish to kill it with fire?
Kenshin/Souzou?  Impossible, since Souzou is dead?  But assuming he didn't die, I'd be alright with it...

10) Four takes Two out on a romantic dinner, and One comes and ruins it. Write about that.
Saito and Sanosuke, and Enishi ruins it?  Well, since Enishi does like to conspire against people, if he held a grudge against Sano/Saito then I'd see it happening...  Enishi'd do something totally outrageous and over the top to spoil Saito and Sanosuke's dinner.

11) Who would Seven rather get together with? Ten or Three?
Souzou + Yahiko or Misao...  Probably neither.  xD

12) Would Nine and One make a good couple?
Inui and Enishi.  Eh, they were on the same team (sort of) but I doubt they'd make good lovers...

13) Listening to the song "You Belong With Me", write a story for a love triangle with Ten/Two/Eight.
Yahiko/Sanosuke/Cheif Uramura?  Lol, do not want...

14) Is there such thing as Six/One or does not compute?
Kenshin/Enishi.  Of course~ (DO want!)

15) Would you read/write a Six/Three/Ten or is it such a bad idea that you want to kill me right now?
Kenshin/Misao/Yahiko.  Eh, I'd probably read one, sure.

16) Is Two/Nine canon? If it's not, how would you feel if it was?
Sanosuke/Inui.  Nope... Wait, maybe kinda?  In a twister sorta way... I'd lol so hard.

17) Three finds Four lying on the gound, bleeding and unconscious. Write about that.
Misao finds Saito bleeding and unconsious...  Misao's a pretty nice person, so she'd probably take Saito to a doctor or at least try to help him herself...

18) Everyone is against Ten/One and want every of its shippers to rot in hell. Y/N?
Yahiko/Enishi.  Ummm... I don't approve.  Dunno about others.

19) Nine walks in on Five and Three getting it on. What does he/she do? Write about that.
Inui walks in on Aoshi and Misao... Lol.  He'd probably just watch?  I always pictured Inui as a creeper...

20) Rant about the idea of Six and Nine getting together.
Kenshin and Inui.  Lol, no.  Would not happen.  Ever.

If you were in solitary confinement for the rest of your life, and you discovered a cockroach in your room, would you kill it or make it your friend?

I'd kill it with fire.  Oh, how I hate bugs....

So my friend zbombie and I decided to make our Halloween costumes this year.  She's the Vincent Valentine, and I'm the Tifa Lockheart.  We were inspired by this, but mainly this. After acquiring boxes and gratuitous amounts of paint we set to work.  Three weeks later, the above was the result.  We got lazy at the end and didn't add the actual claws to the golden arm, but hey, we tried.

Full view of my Tifa outfit

The shoes for the Vincent outfit are my masterpiece.  Oh, how I truly appreciate that cardboard sculpture unit I did back in high school.

Are you ever too old to go trick-or-treating? Is candy for everyone?

I don't believe so, no.  So long as you aren't really creepy about it.  Although there is a point when you should start handing candy out instead of asking for it for free, otherwise there won't be anyone to give candy out in the first place!

Do you use your bank's smartphone or cell phone app? Why or why not?

No, I do not use a smartphone or cellphone app for my bank, as they do not make them for my phone.  Although, I doubt I'd use it even if they released one for my phone.  Cellphones are much too simple to hack into, if you know what you are doing.  The security risk of banking via my cellphone is much too high.  I hardly feel comfortable checking my account information on my own computer at home, let alone from my cell phone.
