I am pretty bad with titles, so let us move on to the matter at hand, shall we?
Just today, I was looking at my profile page on these forums. Not sure what information I was looking for, but what I found was that I have been a member of this forum since 10/30/2011. I still remember when I registered, with the full intention of becoming a regular poster and member of the community. Well, it only took me the better part of a year, but hey, here I am now. And my goodness, how time flies sometimes.
Some of you have encountered me in the CF Chat, and I really enjoyed my time chatting with you. I look forward to joining you more often in the future. So, to simplify things for myself and hopefully everyone else, I'll just throw together a bit of an introduction to myself. I'll start with Me, as a person, then move to Dmitriy, my character. It won't be really in depth, but at least give you an idea of who I am and where I come from.
Oh boy, where to start. I'll avoid giving you my life story, wouldn't want to bore you to death. So lets start here: I am 24 years old, grew up in southern Illinois, then joined the Air Force. I currently live in Delaware, two guesses as to where. I do aircraft maintenance as my job, and my hobbies are mainly video games and cars. I try to be a good person, I am horribly forgetful at times, and wield sarcasm like a hammer. I love reading more than watching TV and movies, and really enjoy the writing subforum here. Anyway, enough about boring old regular me, lets talk about the fuzzy me!
Dmitriy is a Swift Fox, about 2'6'' (76.2cm) tall. Very much average in appearance for one of his species, but he prefers it that way. Always tries to be quick with a joke, enjoys bad puns more than a normal person should. He has a very sharp mind, but doesn't go around making that obvious. Enthusiastic about helping others, he'll gladly go to nearly any legnth for his friends and occasionally even complete strangers. He has a tendency to call nearly anyone he meets a friend, and it takes quite a feat to make him dislike someone. Growing up he held an interest in things of the mechanical sort, dissasembling things simply to find out how they work and occasionally even reassembling them properly. His parents gladly supported his tinkering, encouraging him to take it further. Every opportunity to grow his skills, he'll take. The end result of this is that Dmitriy is more than simply mechanically inclined. He also is quite passionate about nearly anything that flies; be it an airship, airplane, or spacecraft of any sort.
I hope I was able to give you a good look into just who this Dmitriy Fox person is. It's really not as simple as I originally thought it would be. When I first started this post, I was thinking it would simply be a couple minutes of description and bam, done. Here I am an hour later, trying not to build myself a fortress of text as I suddenly found myself building an increasingly interesting
character. On a completely unrelated note, I'm not a huge fan of chiclet keyboards. Next time, I'm typing this on a real laptop, not my silly tablet.
Feel free to ask questions and discuss, and critique if you want. Also, let me know if I am really bad at grammar. I feel like I abuse commas really hard.
TL;DR: I make my own topic, and I still manage to go off topic. That takes some skills.
