1. I love to golf but I'm not really very good. That doesn't stop me from loving the sport though. Best looking playing fields of any sport out there.
2. Discussing religion is one of my favorite past-times. Unfortunately, it scares people so I don't get to do it very often. That's one of the reasons I like ex-mo's like myself that aren't afraid to ask the fun questions.
3. Though single, I have 4 awesome kids that live with me full time. The are bright and independent and ask questions about everything. What more could a proud dad want?
4. I used to think my mom was wacky when she would engage total strangers in a conversation. Now I do exactly the same thing and I love it. I learn so much about the world from these little snippet conversations. The last one got me thinking about doctor-assisted suicide, which is a rough subject, but I thought it was great that I could have a 3 minute conversation in a airport and come away with new knowledge.
5. I can still play the Charlie Brown theme "Linus and Lucy" on the piano although I haven't practiced in over 20 years.
6. I like to play poker and I have a monthly game at my house in Happy Valley. Last time I had 26 players show up. I still came in dead last.
I still have dreams where I'm called on a second mission, but this time I realize, "Oh crap. I'm not a member anymore!"
If I could go back in time to my mission I'd be much more relaxed, maybe sneak an iPod in, sleep in some more. Actually, I probably wouldn't go (although I did love living in Argentina for a year :)
What are your favourite cello compositions, Caitie Ball?
Mmmm.......where to start?
1- I'm bilingual in English & Español.
2- I participated in a documentary about exmormons.
3- I met in person 2 GAs. One while a TBM, one after I stopped believing. The impressions I got where the complete opposite.
4- I am an Atheist.
5- I was in a coma for 10 days after a car accident but no one would ever tell.
Parlo italiano un po' e parlo cinese. Lei e' italiana?

1. I was huge into writing for comics and cartoons, and I used to animate a lot in flash. I don't do it so much anymore because I was depressed for a long time. Made a promise to a member here that I would start up the works again.
2. I have a huge interest in history, in particular history of religions and the Cold War. I feel like the best way to understand the situations our world is in today is by looking at specifically at the Cold War.
3. I play a lot of video games ranging from the Atari 2600 to the modern PC. I own a lot of really obscure consoles like the PCengine, and Famicom Disk System. Getting a Commodore 64 soon as well and I plan on learning some BASIC programming with it.
4. I love fixing old electronics with a soldering iron, or modifying them with features that they didn't come with (modifying a console with S-video output/Region unlocking). Not the greatest with it, but it is something that I am moderately good at.
5. Cooking is something that I legitimately enjoy. I find it very relaxing, and well I like eating food so that's two things!
6. Finally I'm probably the only furry on this site. Not usually something you want to go around admitting places because it can scare people because of quite a few misconceptions about what that actually means due to a lot of bad-apples. Basically it just means you really like anthropomorphic animal characters, and you make one for yourself to have as an avatar that you call your fursona. And while there's a lot of things that the fandom's been known for, I've found that it's been a great way to find a new identity for myself that so far has been surprisingly drama free.
1 - didn't know what "political science" was before joining the major (still unsure of the specifics three years in haha)
2 - never had a cellphone until 2008--while I was on my LDS mission in Canada--and didn't have one of my own until 2010
3 - I was in the City of Joseph pageant in Nauvoo, IL two times as a little kid
4 - my favorite movie growing up was "Fern Gully"
5 - I'm a flexitarian
6 - High School Musical 2 is the best of the trilogy
1) First lost my testimony on my way home from the temple after my grandpa failed to explain any of the culty "mysteries" of the endowment. Lost it again after I decided to stop "doubting my doubts" and actually research them. That was quick.
2) I have radio show, featuring doom metal and whatever else I'm in the mood for (usually weird international stuff)
3) Moved from Oregon/Utah down to Texas to become a petroleum engineer (as long as someone actually hires me)
4) Bike every single day. I bike to school and for fun on the weekends, especially if I want to meditate when I would normally be in church
5) After praying about the Book of Mormon again, I felt spiritual promptings to become an athiest. Hahaha, I love being a fucking conundrum.
6) All of my parents and grandparents went to BYU. I loved BYU. First time since high school/middle school I didn't feel like an outcast. Best friends I ever had. It was a fucking awesome time. Especially when I swore in front of people and they acted all shocked, hahaha. It was even worth mostly believing. Then once I left there was really no point to keeping my mind up on the shelf. I still hate parties, so it wasn't a total loss there. I love drinking with friends, but throwing a big party someone always ends up inviting the assholes.
