I'm your Garden-Variety Internet Random.

I guess I was a TCK, short for Third Culture Kid, before it was a thing though I don't really see the glamour of it.
I am Eurasian, with the following Second-Generation Mix that I can trace:
  • German
  • Portuguese
  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • Ambonese
  • Madurese
Grew up in Sydney - Australia, Marsfield to be exact.

Native Language is English, Parent's and Grandparents' Native Language is Dutch per Colonialism, and unfortunately I'm not an expert of it. I speak several National Languages of South East Asia fluently alongside some Regional Ethnic Languages.

I am trying to learn Japanese in my spare time, but I feel it's better left for when I return to live there again.

We weren't rich growing up, but I was always grateful so I never had envy; everything has its time.
I was raised with the understanding that I stand on the Shoulders of Giants and that Honour is the most important thing one has.

I don't believe in a god per se, but I do believe in a Natural Order or Karma.
I've learnt Empathy from the life I've lived and it continues to be an interesting one.

It does help to travel the World and live in other Countries, but only if one comes with an Open Mind.
I hope everyone here gets a chance to do so in their lifetimes.

I've been here a number of years now. I was a moderator at one time. This place has and always shall have a special place in my heart. I first came, well, for similar reasons as a lot of folks, I suppose, but I've stuck around because, well, it feels like home. For a number years I was a games reviewer for a site I won't name but is still around doing its thing). Now, I'm a department manager at a grocery store. I'm very happy. It's hard work, and it suits me. I've gone to college for two separate degrees, one for music performance from 90-94, and one for communication in the early 2000s. I'm married, have three grown children. I have brain cancer. Was on medical leave for almost a year, and returned back to work in mid-June of this year. I feel sorry for myself too often, I'm getting close to causing my wife to have a breakdown, but like Kurt Russel in Backdraft, she won't let go of me.

That's enough for now.

I love this site (the people of this site), love this world, and hope we get through this darkness together.

I'm just hanging out here and trying to graduate college before I turn 40. Special skills include singing very well while taking a shower, making awesome condensed milk+chocolate balls every now and then and being liked by children, cats and dogs with very little effort.

This thread isn't terribly important to most of our regular members.
We know just about all of you, and we have a general idea what you stand for.
But for our newest members, I'd like for you to consider this to be a mass introduction.
I'll begin:

Hello everyone, my name is Joe, but I'd prefer it if you called me Vulpes, or some derivative of that word.
I'm currently 32 years old.
I'm a pretty simple guy living in Northwest Georgia.
My primary job is Manager of a dairy sheep farm.
I prefer RPGs on the Nintendo DS, and third person shooters on the Xbox 360.
Though I have a very extensive history in piracy, I'm trying to be a legal gamer.
My favorite game (series) is Mass Effect, followed closely by Disgaea.
I tend to hang around with people that are labelled as "unwanted" or "weird" or "freaks", because I associate closely with them.
I cannot stand people who are (or seem to be) liars.
And if you show a true desire to be a part of this community that I adore, I'll gladly welcome and support you.

And now I want to know about you.

What brought you here?
Why did you stick around?
How do you identify yourself?

Tell us whatever you're comfortable in sharing.

Yes, I know that this thread is more suited to the Introductions subforum, and if it becomes a problem I'll happily move it there myself.
It's here because I want the visibility of the thread to be higher than we could expect in the Intro forum.

All members are welcomed and indeed asked to post their information, here.

Why that job? Is it your dream job?
