I'm 16 years old at the moment. I like the following things...
Watching commentaries featuring members of my favourite bands (Dream Theater, Tool mainly)
Playing chess(challenge me anytime)
A little bit about myself...
I'm an atheist. Not the fanatical atheist type, don't worry. I just don't care about religion that much, and I try to keep my opinions to myself when it comes to religious discussions.
I basically grew up surrounded by books, who my (thankfully) intelligent mother used to read to me: Narnia, for example. I grew up to become a very artistic person, which I am grateful of; I can express myself and feel special for it. That is a very special trait, and while some might call it 'lying', I don't care if it is. To me, it is the REALITY.
Out of all the genres in literature, I love horror and fantasy the most. That's why my favourite author is Stephen King, who charmed me with "The Talisman", an excellently written collaboration with Peter Straub.
My main influences include J.R.R Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Agatha Christie, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Jonathan Stroud, George R.R. Martin and Oscar Wilde.
My personal life currently revolves around school, writing and music. School comes first, writing second and playing my guitar or listening to some good music as the last of my day's activities: some bands that I listen to are Slayer, Dream Theater, Meshuggah, Tool, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, My Chemical Romance, and Pink Floyd. There are many more which I listen to occasionally, not on a daily basis; I enjoy every genre of music there is, so it is not much of a problem to find music that I like. Feel free to suggest any bands, if you like.
As for my school, it's going averagely well. I'm getting about 8,0 out of 10,0 in grades, which I hold as sufficient, and there is this rebel-thing going on now that somewhat hinders my studying. While it feels that all of it aims only at one thing - "produce, produce, produce! be efficient!" - it is the truth. That's the harsh truth.
It is good to know how to be efficient. But I love to be inefficient. That's how the imagination is tended to. :)
I enjoy listening to Dream Theater, as their songs really get my emotions flowing freely. I can admit that some of the emotion building up has made me cry several times during a particularly good song. There's no other band like that to me.
With that gone, I can now present to you my random video of a random amount of time...
