Biography, huh? What to say? Well, I'm a weird character. In case you didn't do the math up top, I'm 22 years old. I work for Dr. Bruce Shickmanter, an endocrinologist in the city of Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I live in the smaller but cozier town of Adams, 15 or so miles north of said workplace. I often feel as though I have virtually no friends, so I guess that makes my family everything. I live with my Cioci (read: chUH-chee) Kelly. For you morons, that's Polish for Aunt Kelly. Sorry, I apologize. You're not morons. Well, I'm sure some of you are, but, for the others, I guess that joke probably didn't go over too well. Anyways, if you know me, you know I'm a huge fan of music, and there's hardly a waking moment when I'm not getting my rock on to something. Music gives me an outlet where I can step back and away from the world. If you're really lucky, you might sometime catch me when I'm really getting my rock on, singing my little ass off (in my own special key :ahheh:). That's all very old information.

I like to bowl, shoot pool, run, bike, play ball (base, basket, or foot) or whatever else. I wish people would LJ-CUT all the huge ass surveys and things they put in their journal.

I start off way too many sentences with either "So" or "Anyways" (especially at the beginning of a paragraph) and use too many commas. If this is going to bother you, or you're going to correct either of those two things, fuck off. Otherwise, I'm really picky about everything as far as spelling and grammar goes, so feel free to point out any mistakes you find if you feel like making a fool of me.

I'm not really a big God/Jesus person, nor am I really into religion in general. You'll notice, however, that I have a "thing" for Christian music. Why? I don't know. It's generally just good stuff. I particularly like the following bands/artists: Switchfoot, Casting Crowns, Relient K, Jeremy Camp, FM Static, Stacie Orrico and MxPx. I definitely recommend checking all of them out. If you're looking for some album/song ideas, just ask. What's the best way to follow up some good ole Christian talk?

Marilyn Manson is love.

Representin' the love for Slim Jims, Fritos, cashews and chocolate pudding. Nothin' but hate for bread crust, seafood, peanuts and anything that's green. Love Mounds and shepherd's pie. Hate coconut and corn. I'm a huge fan of pepperoni, white american cheese and Yoohoo. Much love for chocolate milk, too, but it's not quite the same as Yoohoo.

House is love.

Supposedly, 98% of the population (teenagers and older) has tried pot. If you're part of the 2% who hasn't, copy this in your user info.

I did not create this layout. You can find it at LJlayouts.org. Last updated 08/31/2006 9:10 AM.

Prior layout was from CreateBlog.com and was based on the song "My Immortal" by the band Evanescence. I thought it looked nice and fit my mood at the time of 11:30 AM on 04/06/2006.

Anything else you'd like to know? I probably couldn't tell you, but you are certainly free to ask.
