Joined 5 years ago from Earth
I was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the coldest, snowiest state in Central America, or so I’m told. I never really grew up their except in my mother’s womb. My parents had gone there to study for their college education. My father learned to speak English and manage to eventually get a degree in Computer Science in the 80s. My mother, bless her heart, learned how to be a hair stylist. Not sure about the details of their time there, but I may fill you in later if I don’t get lazy. They both didn’t speak one lick of English when they decided to go study abroad. My grandfather, may peace be upon him, sponsored my father and his nephew to study in the states. My father married my mother a few years later and my grandfather sponsored his first son and daughter-in-law thousands of kilometers away from Kuwait where they all had lived. His story is quite inspirational, and perhaps I’ll share that with you, if I don’t get lazy. Oh and I have an older brother also born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, four years my senior. He too has an inspirational story; perhaps you’ll get to know about it, if he decides to be an author.
As I’m writing this, all I can think about is, thank God for spellcheck. I don’t normally write down or even read books. I mostly play videogames in my free time, but I think even that is becoming staler and less interesting then when I started over 20 years ago. Videogames have a certain pattern and a certain remedy to tell its story and medium after you’ve done something for so long. There are improvements, new mash-ups, but never really a new idea. A new idea rarely happens, perhaps it has never happened, but some people are able to observe better than others and see what is special about things that already exist. And of course they have the patience to share it with the rest of us, for a premium. Hopefully I will be inspired by this website to give free content and inspire myself to grow as a new author.
