doing stuff with things daily


a geek, a yorkshireman

Who am I?

When did writing about yourself get so hard? It’s a simple question I suppose. Three simple words. it shouldn’t be this hard to compose a few sentences.

I used to like to think I knew who I was. Turns out I really didn’t. Who I am isn’t who I want to be or what I want to be.

Who then am I? I’m many things that are easily defined. I’m a mid thirties guy, I’m shaven headed, tattooed and pierced. Clearly I am a thug. None of those things are who I am though those are just things about me, how I look not who I am. But that’s not what people see is it? We are after all a judgemental bunch us ‘people’.

That said I don’t really know who I am any more than you know who I am then I guess. I can make a guess at who I might be. You don’t know me, or maybe you do. Either way let me let me take you on a quick journey through what I think I am maybe?

You might call me a geek or a nerd. That’s fine, after all I am. Labels are not always a bad thing and each one is descriptive enough in it’s accuracy in this case. I game, board, RPGs, card and video. I lift weights. You know what to save time you know what you might imagine is a stereotypical geek? Well that is pretty much me.

I like to paint, draw and make things. I like to do stuff with things. I need to be alone and I need to be quiet. I love to learn so I teach myself how to do more stuff with more things. This is the story of those things and that stuff.

Welcome to my world.
