I know a lot of you don't care and probably will think I'm a huge faggot, but here goes.
The first thing I remember in my life is my pre-school called Ms. Dots in Texas (don't remember the city). My best friend at the time was named Julian, he was hispanic and a pretty cool guy, though our friendship didn't go past the pre-school, he still made a lasting impression on me. Fast forward a couple of years and I find myself living in Garland, I start to realize something is different about my family; I don't have a father like my friends do. I asked my mom why that is and she tells me that he just didn't want to stay with us. I sat in my room some days, wondering what my life would be like if he had actually stuck around to be my father rather than a seed-giver. I moped around and started blaming myself for him not being there, then one day, when I was about 12, I decided that I'd stop moping and just move on with my life. I realized that my being sad and angry with myself wasn't going to fix anything and that I should just become my own person. This is also the time in which I became interested in computers and video games alike. I was slow at maturing and became somewhat of an introvert until I hit high school, then everything changed. I started to realize that there were actually people around me that have the same or similar interests. I tried to branch out and play football, but my girlfriend at the time convinced me to quit the team. I regret that decision because I could have gotten a scholarship to pretty much any college in Texas. I was with her for about a year and a half and she was my first girlfriend as well as my first love; her name is Haley. We ended up breaking up over her parents not wanting me around any longer. After we broke up, I went back to being quiet and unsociable for a while. I turned to anime and video games to keep myself distracted. My best friend of 13 years decided he had seen enough of that and pretty much dragged me out of my rut. I finished out high school as a student with average grades, even though my test scores were always high, I was too lazy and unmotivated to do any of the daily work. I lazed around and did the occasional lawn mowing whenever I needed money, but I never got tired of gaming or working with computers; they have always been and always will be my greatest passion in life.
