Trying to sound American.
How did I do?
I'm from Canada, eh!
I've been playing Arma III, off and on, over the years, and played Arma II for many years prior to the launch of the next installment. A couple months ago I decided to hop back on Arma III to fly some helicopters. I played on some servers for a bit, and found Volition Servers to have the best game-play "experience" for heli-pilots, and casual shooter. The community is NOT toxic, admins are the friendliest bunch, and the casual atmosphere brings life into the game on this specific server. The way you play in this server actually matters, and the helicopter pilots actually have a meaningful role!
This meant a lot to me as a gaming enthusiast and a Arma III helicopter pilot, so I've stuck around since I found this server and been playing here ever since. So you can catch me flying the troop transport helicopter's [specifically the Huron] or being the lone-ranger medic on Volition Servers. I do a great job at both roles. I have also donated to Volition Servers, and it's worth every penny!
In the real world, I'm a construction worker. I imagine myself doing other things, like going to join the Army, here in Canada, but my hearing impairment restricts my ability to be able to do that, or do other cool careers. I also imagine myself not being a construction worker for the rest of my life, so I'm open to hop to another career, just I don't know what I would want to do and I rather it be on a college bound path that leads me to a good paying job in a demanding field, but the markets are so over-saturated in many area's that going to school for an in demand field certainly isn't doable in my area at the moment. I'd have to travel and stay in a different city, but the economy isn't allowing me to be able to do that at the current moment!
Yes, Canada has problems of its own right now, and our lovely media surely does not mention such things. Graphix7 and I had a conversation one time on TS, he said I would fit in around here.
Once you get to know me, politically, you may ask me "why does a Canadian knows so much about American politics, when you aren't even American?"
America has a lot of influence in Canada, our media never shuts up about you. And ever since discovering many, many years ago that Bill Clinton is a rapist and Hillary was just starting out as Secretary of State, I just had started paying attention to American politics. I am ill-advised on Canadians politics more than I am on American.
You guys and girls are just two entertaining... (2 scoops, 2 genders, 2 terms)
Colour me shocked.
I don't know what I want to do yet, career wise. So I retort to working with my hands, I get paid real good money, but the hours suck. In mean time before I get a "real" steady 8am - 5pm job that requires me to use my brain, you'll find me playing games some day's on Arma III, CS:GO, Rocket League, or occasionally SC2 or FIFA 18.
I am also a musician and participated in DCI in America (Drum and Bugle Corps). I was part of a group called Pioneer and Empires Statesmen from the US. I played the Baritone horn in both those groups. I am however a snare drummer, but I learned to play the horn as it would allow me to march in a group if I don't make the snare-line. My snare drumming skills were not quite up to par with those in the groups I was a member of. I got to travel and see a lot of America when we toured and competed in World Class competitions hosted by DCI/DCA.
I also went to school in America, in Washington D.C. . I was to major in both (To be announced in sophomore year) Political Science and Philosophy. A Canadian learning American Politics and taking philosophy? I was also a starter for my university team and got to participate in NCAA DIV III Soccer. I was also part of an indoor drum-line in Baltimore, first as a snare drummer, then I got cut and placed in the cymbal line (Not enough tenor drummers; 8 snares and 2 tenors doesn't work).
Colour me shocked.
I couldn't go back, because it was to damn expensive and my own provincial government didn't quite get all of it's cards in place for me prior to the start of the school year so my finances were fucked up by the end of the school year. I couldn't go back my second year. (damn it).
So my life got screwed up for a while because of that. Great. So I went on and joined the construction industry, eh. Doing it 'bout 4 years now. (I know I already said this).
I listen to country now. I started listening since last year. I fucking hated it it. I like it now, and it's usually the only thing I listen to for some fucking odd reason.
You'll find me on the Team Speak 3 channel some days and nights now, and I hope to become a Server Admin for Volition Servers in the near future.
I'm always willing to chat!
