I'm Brendon, and it took me too long to find this website. I'm 21, and working at Wal-Mart while I wait for Marine bootcamp. My top three hobbies are computers, cars, and writing. I enjoy buying, repairing, and re-selling cars for profit, and I own a private server of the MMORPG Maplestory. Both get frustrating, but my little repair business is extra income, and my server is a huge learning experience for management skills, and programming knowledge. I've been writing short stories since I was 14, lallygagging in class. Most of my readers have commented that my writing is emotional, but powerful. I agree with this, and my view is that the power and emotion amplifies reason. I most often write to express myself, and I still fail- no matter how well I write. I still go on with it though. There is no reason to quit writing when it is at least my best form of release, right? Someone asked me today- "if you were a car, how would you describe yourself?" My friends mother was practicing for her psychology classes. I described my self as a strong, young engine, abused from strain and rough off-roading trips. I don't give up, I just put engine cleaner in my gas tank while the drive(r) inside me shows no signs of letting go of the pedal. Most of my days are happy and energetic, and some are like today. Either way, I always make the best of things. See you around!
