My name is Dewayne and a few of you and I are destined to be friends.
Alright, maybe not "destined" but if we become friends then I can later say I called it and will use it as proof of my prescience.
All jokes aside, I am 27 and I just recently moved from one side of the United States to the other, leaving behind a great deal of friends and family. As an individual who also suffers from severe anxiety, I've been in great need of an outlet. I grew up with livejournal being a large part of my life, so it only seemed natural that I'd start a journal and connect with some new friends who have the patience to put up with a few rants here and there.
That might be stretching the truth a little bit, seeing as how I am known to be prone to ranting on more than an occasion.
It's a really difficult thing, writing a post that's suppose to summarize yourself as an individual, as if an entire lifetime of events culminating into a personality can be written down in passing. That being said, here are a few things about me.
I enjoy learning "useless" talents. It's become a bit of an inside joke with several of my friends back home. From magic tricks to yoyos, if it takes a time investment and has no practical use, I've probably spent sometime exploring it.
I am a christian, even more, I have both taught and preached in the past. My faith is a very central part of who I am. That being said, I don't believe religion is something that should be forced upon another individual. Any posts that go in depth about that aspect of my life will come with a disclaimer and with be hidden under a cut. I am not looking to argue theology or morality with anyone. Although I am open to civil and respectful discussions from anyone.
I deeply enjoy music and come from a very broad background of musical upbringing. Although personally I find myself drawn to hip-hop the most. At least, when it is done intelligently and with direction. I am not generally a fan of the noise pollution that qualifies as hip-hop from a radio standpoint.
I enjoy cartoons. Both those made for adults and those made for younger crowds. I enjoy anime, generally Seinen. My two favorites are Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo and Spice and Wolf. I also play a lot of video games, on both the PC as well as my WiiU. Although most recently that consists of a lot of GTAOnline and Civilization V with my friends back home.
You know, a friend once told me "You got to let the crazy out slowly or you'll chase them all away" but I think that's very inefficient. I am who I am and I will always do my best to be genuine about that fact, because honesty is a solid foundation. Feel free to add me, sent me a message, or post a comment. I look forward to getting to know you all.
