"Who am I? That's a surprisingly difficult question. I couldn't become who I was supposed to be, so who does that make me now?"
In human terms, I am a 29 year old straight cisgender (non-transgender) man who still lives with his
dad (my mom passed away recently), and that has lived and continues to live a very sheltered life with extremely limited freedoms.
Still, that isn't quite as bad as it might sound, and I have gotten to play countless different video games
over the years (that list is still a WIP), and also watch many different anime series
(I don't get to play many video games these days, though…)
The very first video game that I ever played was Freddi Fish
, which I first played when I was only 3 years old, and I have played a number of different video games on different Nintendo, Sega, and Sony consoles over the years, going back as far as the SNES and the Sega Genesis.
(It's been a LONG time since I've been able to play anything on a PC, though.)
Of course, if my profile hasn't already made it obvious, my favorite video game series is
Pokémon, which I have been playing for over 24 years
, up until my 2DS broke
back in 2020, and my DS Lite broke earlier on in 2022.
(I can still battle on Pokémon Showdown
at least, though.)
I am also a recent convert to Christianity ✝, thanks to both my good friend Siling-La
from Paint and my late mother, and while I have still never actually read the Bible (due to my complicated RL situation), I enjoy talking about my faith with anyone who wishes to do so, provided that they are polite and respectful about it.

I've always loved animals and nature, especially fish and reptiles such as sharks, turtles, crocodilians, and pretty much anything large, scaly, and prehistoric-looking, lol!
I hope to have a pet
shark alligator gar
turtle someday (hopefully an alligator snapping turtle, but more likely a painted turtle), and although I haven't been able to read many books here, I have read quite a bit about proper herp and fish care, as well as books about sharks, dinosaurs, dragons, and other things that a little boy (or someone like me who never outgrew that sorta stuff) would be interested in.
Music wise, I'm a big fan of OSTs, particularly music from all of those video games and anime series that I'm into so much.
My favorite song from a video game is Lorekeeper Zinnia's battle theme
from the Δ Episode of Pokémon Ω Ruby and α Sapphire Versions, although I also like Zinnia's 2 other theme songs a lot: Those Who Inherit Eternity
(which I even wrote these lyrics
for), and The Lament of Falling Stars
My favorite anisong is Snowstorm
❄ by Rie Kugimiya, and another song of hers that I like quite a bit is Slow Motion
Although it is still a WIP, you can also check out my music profile
to get a better idea of what sort of music I like.
(Although I don't exactly get to just listen to music whenever I want to, unfortunately…)
