Welcome to my profile. Not sure why you're here, but hopefully you find what you came for.
I was born in 1984, and am a single father of a a son born in 2007, and I work at Office Depot.
My tastes are rather wide. I like many different types of shows, movies and music. This also goes for ships. Within reason. I also have a rather addictive personality, so if I like your work I'll more than likely burn through it as fast as possible. I also have a rather legendary tolerance for bad fanfics( as well as movies and television, etc) but that doesn't mean I don't recognize that they're bad, or that I won't tell you. That said, I don't review things all that often. Usually you'll have to evoke some sort of noteworthy reaction to get one.
As for writing... I have problems with depression and anxiety but I'm just as likely to have hot streaks as cold streaks so please be patient with me.
Oh, and just for a bit of bragging rights, to the best of my knowledge, I wrote the first Spiderwick fanfic on this site. I was number one! And more recently, and more provable, I've written the most popular Kick-Ass fanfic on this site. (The internet?)
And with that, I'd like to add something that's a bit of a modified quote:
Fanfic writing is a hobby that is indulged in mostly by idiots, simpletons, and people who barely or haven't yet made it out of high school.
Fan fiction isn't difficult to write. It's difficult to write well.
Now for some REAL quotes:
“I do this often in vocational guidance of students. They come to me and say, 'Well, umn, we're getting out of college and we haven't the faintest idea what we want to do.'
So I always ask the question: What would you like to do if money were no object? How would you really enjoy spending your life?
It's so amazing, the result of our educational system, that crowds of students say: 'Well, we'd like to be painters', 'We'd like to be poets', 'We'd liked to be writers'...
'But everybody knows you can't earn any money that way'
When we finally get down to something which the individual says they really want to, I will say to them...
'You do that. And forget the money.'
Because if you say that getting the money is the most important thing...you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You'll be doing things you don't like in order to go on living. That is, to go on doing things you don't like doing. Which is stupid! Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing...than a long life spent in a miserable way.
And after all, if you really like what you're doing, it doesn't matter what it is, you can eventually become a master of it. The only way to become a master of something is to be really 'with it'.
And then you'll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. Therefore, it's so important to consider this question: 'What do I desire?'"
“Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life...a person happy doing his own work is usually considered and eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it's to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success.
Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests, is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential. As if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth.
You'll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you're doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you'll hear about them.
To invent your own life's meaning is not easy, bit it's still allowed, and I think you'll be happier for your trouble."
"'Kindness' covers all of my political beliefs.
No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do.
To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.
I didn't always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."
