I used to live in a bigtime city (Toronto, Ontario), but due to some family illness, I moved to Newfoundland. Wanna know what my town is like? I get my drinking water from a well that has a "pay per use" system, my house only has one electrical socket a room, and the town only has a population of 400 (75% is over the age of 50). Oh and don't forget that to heat my house I use oil and wood.
2. I only became a serious gamer around the time I bought my 360
In the summer of 07, my Dad won the lottery. It was a fair bit of money, but it was split between 6 men. My father still got a nice chunk, and for a good report card, he bought me a 360 (or alteast as he remembers, said I could, he was drunk out of his mind). From there my rekindled love of gaming was reborn, and I joined a little community called Dtoid.
3. I'm an avid IRC user
If you could see my most used program over the past year, it would be IRC. It's pretty much on from the second I wake up in the morning till the time I head to bed. I love mah Dtoid IRC, and if you ever need me, I'm in there.
4. I'm a recent PC gamer, and I <3 it
I built my first PC in October of last year, and when I plugged it in for the first time, IT DIDNT GO BOOM! I was so happy that I built this with my own hands. It's like my first child, except I can turn it off, and it doesn't poop. I'm addicted to TF2, and play a foray of games with some Dtoiders, which I love
5. I live, breath, and eat hockey
I'm Canadian, what do you expect? I've been a hockey fan all my life, and will die one. I was born in Toronto, but loathe the Leafs. I'm a Duck Fan, tried and true, and When they one the cup in 07, it was possibly the greatest day of my life.
6. My parents are under 40, and I'm almost 18
My parents are my true heroes. They had a child in a foreign place 1000's of miles away from their home at the age of 20. What did they do? They sucked it up, and provided me with an awesome childhood. I'm now nearing my 18th birthday as they are nearing the big 4-0. They raised me as a polite mannerly young man and I can only repay them by going to university, and earning a great degree.
7. I'm becoming one of those Engine- SPY SAPPING MAH SENTRY!
I'm going to Memorial University next year, and I'm planning to become an Engineer. I was recently fascinated by the world of Engineering, and I feel it is the perfect job for me. Now electrical or computer engineering, decisions decisions.
8. I'm a Sports Encyclopedia...
Or alteast my Dad thinks I am. I'm a huge fan of sports, and love reading about them. I've basically been reading sport books since I was 3-4 years old, and I have garnered quite the sport knowledge. I know a retarded amount of sports tidbits, and can join any sport conversation with ease. Why is this good? I've won 4 NHL playoff pools. What is so special about this? Last one I entered, I was 14. Yea, pretty embarrassing for these 40+ year old men who study the sport losing to a kid who picks with his gut.
9. I'm incompetent around Women
This is probably caused by my laid back manner, and the fact I don't know what to say around them. I have a tendency to scare away women my own age with my twisted sense of humor and I'm ridiculously shy. Maybe I'll get better, but only I can make that happen.
10. I come from a really blue collar family
I'm a man of my technology. I have big expensive gadgets that makes all my families brain asplode when they try to use it. My family is full of hard workers who never had time for electronics, since they were too busy cutting wood, hunting or gone ski-dooing. I myself do all this too. Hell, I've eaten some werid meat, like moose, deer, fox, rabbit, grouse and seal. Yea.. I ate the first seal I ever shot. That makes you a man.
