I always make these 'about me' descriptions so much more complex than what they should be, and trying to explain who I am in just a few paragraphs can be an outright pain in the ass. And this time won't be any different, I'm sure. With that said, let's get to it!
-The name's Gabriel, but I have a decent selection of nicknames: Gabe, Gabe the Babe, Pops, Meeko, Chris, and Weirdo with the Beardo. All we're given by family and friends. I'm an 18 year old gay male attending a simple community college in the northern area of California where not much happens. Let's face it, if you don't have friends here, chances are you'll go a bit insane.
-Generally, I'm rather optimistic. I've learned through experience it's best to focus on the brightside of every fucked-up situation. You'd think it would be an obvious way of going about things, but most people sit and whine over the smallest issue. I was the same way only a year back. But I guess you can say I've matured quite a bit. Although, don't get me wrong at all, I am human and can have my outbursts every now and then.
-I'm also: sarcastic, nice, loyal, caring, random, 100% drug/alcohol free (if you drink or do drugs, it's all good, I don't judge), understanding (for the most part), and reserved. You really have to earn my trust before I fully open myself up to you (well, this really applies to those off the net). If you treat me with respect then I'll do the same. I'm all for being buds with anyone, and I'm all for second chances, but once you cross that line...goodbye.
-As for what I want in an LJ friend...please, please don't add me if all you expect is more comments. I try my best, but I don't agree with the belief that new friend = more comments! I want to read about and get to know you. And sure, I'll comment here and there, but I do have a life outside LiveJournal and making sure I comment everyone isn't my main priority hah.
So If you'd like to add, just leave a comment here or in my friends only entry with a little about yourself and why you want me in your friends list. Thanks.
Finally, for photos, just...
And for what friends on and offline have to say about me, just look at my sidebar.
