"Who am I really?" That's the question I keep on hearing from people my age. This kind of coincides with another question: "Who do I want to be?"

Hi. I'm Matt. Just your ordinary average Joe who's trying to find his way through this world. I'm not normal (that kinda didn't sound right). So that makes me abnormal, but I'd like to think that I am in a different way (not in the slur I've been accustomed to growing up, atleast). While others are huge fans of basketball (we're all kinda obsessed with the sport), I'm a soccer fan. While others are catching Pokemons, I write. While others hit the bars and clubs, grooving to the latest EDM hits, I just sit back at home, listening to Slipknot, Mudvayne, Chuck Mangione, Buklod and BB King with a beer in hand a C smoked about half way (C's for cigarette, by the way). I love blue more than green. I've done my fair share of crazy stuff (most of which, I'm not proud of) and have embarassed myself so many times, it's ludicrous. I'm a proud son to wonderful parents and a loving brother to two awesome sisters. I'm a human to my two dogs. I'm a bud to my friends and I'm a fleeting footnote to the love stories of my wonderful exgirlfriends (no ampalaya intended). I'm a pile of mistakes with limited virtue. So to answer the first question I stated above, "I'm me."

Having addressed that, I want to have a better understanding of a lot of things. I won't pretend to know everything. Heck I can't even maximize the usage of my phone (my dad was a bigger tech than I am). I do, however, have my own opinions about a lot of things. I dabble in political talk here and there. I crack obscene jokes from time to time and I receive some harsh criticism a lot; all in the pursuit of a lesson or two, good laugh or just for the plain reason of just being darn stupid. So, my answer to my other question is, I want to be the better version of me from yesterday.
