Introduction for dsjansen

My name is Damon, I’m 37, and I live on a small blue marble orbiting an average yellow dwarf star somewhere in the Milky Way galaxy. I wish I could say that I have a spectacular occupation, but alas, I cannot, for I have no current occupation. I suppose you could say that I’ve been in between jobs for the past four years or so. I started working straight out of high school—I stocked shelves at a local department store. A year and a half later, burnout struck. Then I got a job doing PC administration. Two years on and burnout again. Then I became a computer programmer. That one lasted ten years before burnout reared its ugly head. Blah. That doesn’t mean I’ve been doing nothing with my life lately—far from it. I’ve been a student, a photographer, a writer, a tutor, a transcriber, an editor, and a dog breeder. I’ve learned a little bit about a lot of things through reading and doing, so I suppose I could be called a "Jack of all Trades." Hobbies? Games of all sorts, cooking, sleeping. I used to play kendo (Japanese fencing), but after I lost my job, I couldn’t afford it anymore. But I'll get back to it one of these days. People accuse me of being intelligent, but I don't tell anyone that; I prefer to let people form their own opinions about me. I do, however, have a very low tolerance for intolerance (does that make me a hypocrite?).

Welcome to the site! Sounds like you are indeed a jack of all trades! Looking forward to reading your posts about kendo. It is something that I'm interested in... actually, anything that is remotely related to and can be used for fighting and self-defense, - i'm interested in!

Hi Damon, and welcome to PP. I, too, am in WA state. I'm guessing that is here in the US and not Western Australia!
