First off allow me to apologize for not being able to introduce myself in person. So many words can be spoken through the eyes and a simple touch of skin, as two people shake hands. Lips have the tendency to spew lies our mind creates, for the sake of impression.

However, with pen and paper this is the closest I will be able to come show you my most sincere mind.

With that said...

Nerd Alert! This guy likes it all, Monty Python, Dune, LOTR, D&D, zombies, vampires, all the good stuff!

He enjoys conversation both deep and insanely silly. He is really funny but beware, he does have a habit of bad dad jokes. Don't worry they just make him more endearing. He is a master of the welding shop and an amazing artist.

Hopefully, if the laws keep changing and...

Sometimes people come into your life, and you know right away if they were meant to be there, to serve some purpose, teach you a lesson, or help you figure out who you want to become. You never know who these people may be, but when you meet them, you know that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way. Sometimes things happen to you and at that time they seem bad, painful,...
