More at 11, Writer Takes Internet by Storm
Just a general blag for me to post my thoughts and whatnots.
An introduction.
H...hello? Is this thing on? Awesome. Now, I just need to type something worth reading.


OK, for those of you who don't know, this is John "Triggerhappy" Wells, and this is just another spot for me to vomit forth my musings onto the blagosphere. I am currently. I look forward to writing inane drivel and boring anyone gullible enough to read this to absolute tears. So sit back, relax, and put on some soothing music, because this could take a while.

Seriously, why are you here of all places? Isn't there somewhere else on the internet you'd rather be?


OK, whatever you say, boss.

Currently I'm not really exceptionally inspired to write. I'm doing this for no better reason than that my guilds are rather quiet tonight, and I do not find much fun in the random, short term encounters of the towns. So, what do I do? Well, I'm a gamer, first and foremost.

I know, not a career, but I'll get to professional stuff in a moment.

As I said, I'm a gamer. I consider myself a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to gaming. Video games, computer games, card games, board games, role playing games, word games, strategy games, economy games, if I haven't played it, then I would probably like to. I have other interests. Literature, off an on, web comics almost constantly, and anime whenever I have the time.

Professionally, I am currently going to college to study to be a Journalist... hopefully. I'm a freshman, which is odd for someone my age, but even at this point in my life I'm still a bit unsure as to what it is I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I do know what my dream job is... I think. I'd like to work for a video game related publication as a writer. But, I don't know if such dreams are feasible. All I know is that writing is one of the few things I can do with some level of proficiency and still enjoy. So, it's a starting point.

Meanwhile, my income comes from my employment at my local Baskin Robbins as Assistant manager. Yes, I push ice cream for a living. No, I will not deliver a half gallon of German Chocolate Cake to your house. Come in and buy it.

Currently, my free time is spent either on the internet or at The Gameroom, a local tabletop, board, card, and miniature games shop. I run a game of DnD every other week and play in another game in my off week. I also play Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, and a variety of board games.

I suppose, that is most of what there is to know about me. Oddly, writing about myself has always been one of the hardest things for me to do. I suppose that is why I chose to start this. I figure if I can write about something so mundane as myself and make it sound interesting, it will improve my writing elsewhere. That, and maybe if I get tired of writing the same thing week after week, I'll trick myself into bringing some variety into my life.

One can only hope, eh?
