Hi everyone! I'm Near (no, not in that sense ).
Why Near? Well, I am a fan of Japanese culture in general (even tough Japanese class is destroying my GPA :cryhankie, and I got into manga/anime quite young (thanks to Detective Conan, or Case Closed in English, and to a lesser extend, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Dragon Ball (without the Z)). You might also notice I love brackets. That comes from taking Computer Science in University (first year, still at home and Java, for those that are wondering).
Anyway, Near. Well, he's a Death Note character that most Death Note fans hate. Well, I love the character, so ya, Near will do for my user-name. He kinda sorta reminds me of how I was as a child. Or rather how I saw myself back when I was a child.
Oh, and its four letters long, which matches my initials (sans middle name, mind you).
Anyway, enough for that. I love watching sports, mostly Bobsleigh, Skeleton, Biathlon and (on the rare occasions I can find it) Handball. I also love Association Football (Soccer is an abbreviation of association, for those wondering to which of the dozen Football codes I was referring), Alpine Skiing, Water Polo, Curling and pretty much any sport that is not Golf, Baseball or Golf. Heck, replace Baseball by Golf. I also like running and I recently started Fencing. Oh, if you ever want to know anything about the Olympics, ask me. Because I know way too much random facts about the five ring circus...
I also like video games, and I am a big fan of the "Ace Attorney" series (Objection is the single greatest word in the English language). I am also a big Harry Potter fan (literally grew up whit the series, read the first book when I was 10 and the last when I was 15), whit His Dark Materials coming in a close second (despite the amazingly disappointing movie adaptation of Golden Compass).
Finally, for those wondering why my location is in German, its an homage to the fact that the "old" Brunswick is located in Germany. Which is something most New Brunswickers don't even know .
Oh, almost forgot, I'm a DL whit some AB tendencies, and I'm tiered which explains the long rambling post.
(Promise my next post will be shorter...).
