I'm a writer, a deep thinker, and philosopher kinda guy. Metal-head, Star Wars nerd, WWE nut, and chronic procrastinator. Also, viewers be warned, I'm 31, losing my hair, and thanks to this lovely economy; stuck living at home, with Mom and my brother. It sucks.
Despite my mostly metal-head tastes, I also love Shakira, Pink, Celine Dion, and Jethro Tull. ;)
I have a lot of philosophies, for a lot of different things. So, you'll have to just ask.
What Gives Me Hope
Dunno, really. These days, the human race is becoming more and more of a disappointment to me. I think everyone wakes up with a heaping bowl of stupidity and ignorance for breakfast every morning. So, I hope I hit the lotto, or publish my writing, and from there, who knows?
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
The first thing I would do, is have the Fed Reserve abolished. Then I'd redistribute the taxes the gov't takes from us all, and put them to good use: Universal healthcare being one of the major parts, along with perpetual energy technology, and higher education for all. Knowledge is power, and power is responsibility. When you hog all the power, you shoulder a burden of responsibility that is too great for mortals. Best to share it, don't you think? Then America becomes a great nation in truth (1st time for everything), and maybe other nations would follow the example. Then we'd have a more unified human race. From there, it's onward and upward.
What/who changed my life and why
So many...Star Wars. The Matrix. Christ's teachings, (but without the bible's particular spin on them). My Mom, my Dad, my friends and family, everyone, really. I take a lot of things from different stimuli, and adopt them for my own. Never stop learning never stop evolving. As for the because, well, that's too much blasted typing, so, ask, if you wanna know!
