IMPORTANT! Trying to raise money so I can visit my friend who I met here on Booksie since we're writing a novel together. I'm from Texas and I've gotta go to Nashville. I am a university student and I just quit working to become a full time student. If you like my writing, and are feeling very generous, buy my works here:
I have the work for free here, so I'm just humbly asking for you to consider buying it and spreading the words. It's just $2.99 and my works will always be free here on the site. Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, for the other writers on here, I am a musician and then a writer. In my spare time, I love to exercise, play video games, listen to music, and then write. So it is a rare hobby, considering I am busy with training, college, and work; however, I am currently majoring in English, so it's a hobby that is becoming more and more central to my life. I am 19 and II grew up in a border town in Texas (and live here still).
I planned on moving out after high school, but a wonderful opportunity presented itself here in town at my local university in the Texas A&M system: a huge scholarship and a free trip to Turkey (which I will be taking in March). Because I grew up in a border town, I grew up with two cultures: classic American (perhaps more conservative than liberal but open-minded at least), and stereotypical Mexican (wait, conservative American and stereotypical Mexican? They don't quite go hand-in-hand).
Because of this, life was always strange and full of peculiarities, but I grew up questioning everything, including religion, my parents, the education system and politics; that said, I believe greatly in respecting one another, so I do my best to respect people from all walks of life, and am therefore extremely interested in learning about the world. I admire the quote: the world is my country, all mankind is my brethren, and to do good is my religion. I proudly embrace my two cultures. I admire Bond films/books.I admire Metal Gear and Final Fantasy (the video game series). I absolutely adore The Little Prince and Sophie's World.I value education, honor, and respect above everything. I like my guns, martial arts, and big delicious meals. I am a humongous music fan and play/lead a progressive rock band. I don't quite believe in spirits, souls, fates, etc...so it is hard for me to say with absolute certainty that there is a purpose to life.
But whether there is or isn't...I know I have this life to live to its fullest. It's my goal to do so.
Also one of my favorite songs ever (I'll post perhaps my top five or ten soon...which are always changing, but for some reason these few I will be posting are eternally amazing: http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=1n9JgUizq8M

Four favorite quotes: "I only know that I know nothing," -Socrates.
"It is the time you spend on your rose that makes it so important," The Little Prince
"You see things; and say why? But I dream of things that never were; and say why not?" - George Bernard Shaw
"Pride is just another way of trying to live with my mistakes. Denial is a better way of getting through another day. Silence is another way of saying what I want to say. Lying is another way of hoping it will go away. But you were always my mistake," -Steven Wilson.
