Read the title. I'm bored so I'm going to list a bunch of facts about me that you may or may not know (and yes, I know that this is far from a creative blog idea)
1. I'm 20 years old
2. I'm currently in the final semester of my freshmen year of university (college for all you Americans). I'm double majoring in electrical engineer and computer science.
3. I applied to three universities when I went through that whole process. I got accepted into all three. FUCK YEAH!
4. I go through friends like magazine subscriptions.
5. My favorite day of the year is All Hallows Eve (not Not All Saints Day... weird, I know)
6. People who know me consider me to be incredibly well-read. This be true. My favorite authors are Vladimir Nabokov and Herman Melville. Exactly heavy reading.
7. As for the reason people consider me well-read, I'm looking at my bookshelf right now. On the top shelf is The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde, Margret Atwood's Oryx and Crake, Charles Yale Harrison's Generals Die in Bed. Also there is The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire(a 6 volume book detailing the later western reigns), Flags of Our Fathers (detailing the soldiers at Iwo Jima), and The Last Czar. As you can probably guess by these titles, I'm a war history buff (especially World War One) Also there are texts by Nietzsche, Kant, Leibniz, Plato and Aristotle.
8. The other genre of book I enjoy reading is the Historical Fiction, particularly anything by James A. Michener.
9. I've been playing video games since "Forever", though I didn't own a games system until I was around ten when my parents got me a N64.
10. I currently own the following systems: SNES, Gameboy Advance, N64, 2 Nintendo DSes (both lite), PS3 (orginal), Nintendo Wii. I'm also in the process of acquiring several arcade PCB's, in particular StarCastle and ESP RaDe.
11. My favorite types of games are shooters, shoot-em-ups and My Pokemon Ranch.
12. My favorite weapon to use in any shooter (with the exception of the Battle Fields') is the shotgun. Boom headshot is so satisfying.
13. My favorite Battle Field weapons the Anti-tank round, the Frag Grenade, and the Medic Class.
14. My favorite beverage at the moment is a glass of straight gin. No pussy shot glasses or chasers for this cowboy.
15. My other favorite beverage is a nice, room temp can of Diet Dr Pepper (since you get more head fizz than with cold ones).
16. My favorite food is probably crab. Either that or bacon.
17. I'm a Gemini
18. My favorite band ever is the Creedence Clearwater Revival
19. My favorite rapper is either Lil Wayne or the entirety of the Wu-Tang Clan (minus U-God, natch).
20. I have a tested IQ of 121, but I don’t use it well at all.
