In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

I'm pretty good at chess, though not as good as I'd like. I love billiards, and good at it too. I'm the average person in high school: good grades, average number of friends, not popular, not nerdy, but in the middle. I love the beauty of the game of chess, which is why I started learning through my dad, who isn't that bad (I have yet to win two in a row). I'm free for anyone who wants to challenge me, no matter how good or bad, I don't care, but if you can make it unrated, that would be appreciated. So yeah, that's me.
I have a very fluctuating rating on this site. You know what they say, the bigger they are the harder they fall:
Note: I am not a grandmaster. Although I appreciate the flattery, I am far from achieving that title.
I am super admin in the Sacred Pawn Legion, one of the fastest expanding groups out there!
I am an admin in Chess Unlimited, one of the biggest and most diverse groups on the site!
I love music, particularly classic rock (80s, 90s), but also some new bands:
(most of them I couldn't get the good music video due to embedding disabled, but it works)
I love sports
I can catch, but I'm not a guy that can run over people easily...
I'm good at basketball, even though I haven't played it in a while.
I can bowl a 140, but that was a couple of years ago...
I'm in a dodgeball league, and I'm a BEAST :D
I like video games on any system.
I like to computer program a lot. It's my life basically.
(You just get the job done, ya know?)
One more thing before I go...
