Hey, everyone. Get ready for an info-dump.
I'm a twenty-something guy living in the US. I was born in a hospital. I have had a relatively normal life, outside of a few specific incidents, with the most major one being a housefire. The fire in question left me severely scarred on my legs, and I've grown up feeling a bit like an outcast because of those scars.
I also suffer from some pretty bad social anxiety, and have a hard time talking to people, especially those of the opposite gender. That bit is typical, I know.
I tend to go through long periods of depression, and I take meds for it. It's not awesome. I'm not trying to complain, though. Just letting you know a little bit more about who I am.
I have poor sleeping habits.
I don't eat right, and I'm overweight, but not obese. I just have a gut. I'm really tall, so my excess weight doesn't stand out too much. I do plan on starting a routine exercise plan soon, and hopefully I can burn some of it off.
I grew up in a religious household, but have since abandoned religion. I try not to be a dick about it, though. If religion makes you happy, then more power to you.
I also play guitar. I've been playing for about five or six years now, but I'm certainly no pro. I can play it fine, but I'm unable to do complicated stuff, unfortunately. I have a YouTube channel where I occasionally post music, some of which I wrote myself.
I'm currently living with my parents, but I did actually strike out on my own for a while, so it's not like I never left my parents' home or anything. I just managed to fuck things up tremendously while I was away. Let me tell you, after a night in jail, you realize living with your parents isn't all that bad.
Please don't misinterpret that. I'm not a criminal. I've never stolen anything (outside of VN piracy...) in my life, and I've never harmed anyone physically. I was just doing some stupid shit and got caught after a particularly crazy night.
I don't have any friends anymore. I'm quite lonely.
I keep a blog on another site, but I'm not quite ready to link to that here. It's mostly filled with personal anecdotes and stories about things that have happened in my life.
I like writing. If I could get paid to write, that'd be badass. I don't know if I actually have talent, if I'm being honest with myself. I sure hope I do.
My love for Visual Novels technically started a number of years ago, when I first picked up Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and fell in love with it. I didn't even know what a Visual Novel was at that time, though. I really started getting into visual Novels after playing Katawa Shoujo and being blown away by Hanako's route. If you've played her route, then you'll know why it affected me so much. I have scars, too.
Since then, I've played a number of Visual Novels, and found my way to these forums. I'm open to adding people as friends if I don't hate you for some reason or another, so please, feel free to add me!
