In light of my more serious approach to my introducion, i would like to present a more subjective point of view on my personality. Im unmarried and
have no children. I still live at home, my father and mother splitting towards the end of highschool, leaving me in place of my father to care for my
mother and sister. I work as a cnc machinist, though feel the job unfulfilling and empty, with low pay for position that requires quite a bit of
skill. I enjoy heavy metal music, however i do not bound myself to the genre constraints and will occasionally listen to the likes of Biggie or Snoop,
The Beatles or Elvis. To me good music is good music. I also spend time on my PS3. I would have said a week ago that my favorite game is Assasins
Creed, however its under serious review after the conclusion of the latest release. I played hockey as a youth mostly as a defenceman, however was
revered for being a secret weapon with un-contested break-away speed (literally, after 12 years of playing, never did i encounter a player in my local
region that could pass me. Maybe catch, but never exceed)
My local area has been one of the most seriously affected by the economic storm we find ourselves trying to weather. With the historical city of
Detroit literally right across the river, ive had the liberty of growing up in a very americanized city. The national sports events are a bus rides
away with some hassle from the border guards, which ive seen a dramatic change of resolve post 911. The population of both cities of windsor and
detroit have plummeted and there is still no end in sight.
Ive travelled a great deal within America, and while being Canadian, i will say that i love the history, scenery, and people of your country. We
truely in my opinion the two greatest allies ever share a border. I do not hold dissent as i have seen so often towards Americans. If anybody is in it
together, its the USA and Canada. Ive been to Flordia, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennesse, Missouri, Illinois, and on the longest trip, spanned
California from the redwoods of Fort Bragg to the city of angels, LA, taking the entire trip down the pacific highway. Ive also travelled in Ontario,
from London to Toronto, along the coasts of the great lakes, and also visited Montreal and Quebec City. Not to say the rest of the world has it bad,
just to me im proud of the natural beauty of the place i call home. I would love to visit europe having some strange ancestry ( Irish, Scottish,
English, and French) and the more peculiar concoction that i am equally split between each, 25%) but responsibility and finacial burdens are all ever
I have stayed far away from debt. Its inescapable but for as long as i can i will dodge its slavery, leaving me in a position with very little
present finacial obligations, however future ones are always looming. I am at the mercy of my local economy and while so many have left i still have
hope that the cities that forged the production lines that helped our contries through war and brought us prosperity will one day return to the former
glory of the hayday.
I also find myself reluctant to abide to political and social parties. While i feel that many have good intentions, the subjective nature will
ultimatly result in inequality to some other persons expense. I stand for absolute equality for all walks of life, religious, sexual, racial, and any
other further seperated group that has identified itself as such and those without the capacity or ability to do so. I stand for freewill, liberty,
freedom, and actively seek out inspiring quotes by men and women greater than myself. I do stand against special right, oppression, genocide (both
intentional and non) and for the most part war. But many of these positions can be brought to light in future threads, im simply establishing a
position so that my new community can gain a perspective about me, which is the premise of an introduction.
To my Canadian brother, i regret to say that while i find humour in that video, the weather in my region is not typical to most of Canada. We get
snow, but being the most southern portion of Ontario we usually just get clipped by the larger storms that produce the copious amouts of snow you must
see in the west. I usually dread the snowfall for fear of the drivers that will have to deal with it. Many drivers have very little practice in the
slippery conditions and it always results in some very horrific accidents. Its really due to the sporadic nature of the weather. We could get 6" of
snow on tuesday and its already melted and gone by thursday due to some weather events that i will really never understand. We have some very wacky
weather here, snow rarely sticks, we have tornados seemingly randomly and have seem lots of displays of extreme weather. Im afraid to concede that you
are much more Canadian than I, as the relative proximity to the states has had a large impact on our society.
Thank you all for your warm welcome!
