I was raised in the pacific northwest but left for the army right out of high school. I've traveled up and down the east and west coast and seen some places in between. I also spent a year in South Korea, and a year in Kuwait. I have three kids, 17, 13, and 6.
I enjoy a wide range of music such as country, pop, oldies, rock. Just depends on the song. I like watching Anime some of my favorites are Sword Art Online, Seven Deadly Sins, No Game No Life, and .Hack. I also used to enjoy running and would like to get back into it. I would enjoy having the company of someone to run with just to keep active and in shape.
Then of course my primary hobby is video games. I'm an explorer when it comes to games. I enjoy a variety of games from FPS to strategy, city builders to sims. My main passion though is MMORPG's. I played Everquest 2 for roughly 12 years and enjoyed the sense of community, the challenge of raids, and the good times laughing with friends as we died miserably. It's not so much about the game itself as much as it is having people to share those experiences with. It's about working together as a team to overcome challenges that sometimes seem impossible. I do not enjoy PVP focused games though in the right case it can be fun. I currently play World of Warships and find it too be a fun PVP game with a friendly community. Otherwise I prefer PVE in most cases.
I prefer to stay at home and chill. I have seen my share of the country. I've hiked mountains, camped in the woods for far too long, and run a marathon. I prefer the comforts of my home and relaxing with my family and friends. There are a few places I would like to see in the world but otherwise I'm not looking to travel very much. Probably not till after retirement. I place my responsibilities above gaming (most the time) and expect others to do the same. I think it's okay for a house to look lived in, but it should be kept mostly clean (as much as a 6 year old allows). Finally I place a big emphasis on financial security and focus on being able to retire and enjoy retirement without worrying about money. Fiscal responsibility is big to me, not to the point where you cut out morning coffee, but don't go spending all your money on food. There has to be balance, a nice in between. Enjoy but don't go overboard.
Finally, I'm more of a listener than a talker. Though on occasion I can definitely ramble on. I hope that gives you a bit of insight to me and look forward to meeting new people.
