Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I felt like putting up a thread about just asking what you people are like.
We haven't really had more than hacking discussion this far (which is kinda strange as skeetendo has already been up way over a year :D).

But yeah, I'm a young man at the age of 21 and come from Finland.
My main subject is chemistry and have mathematics and studying as the side subjects because I'm planning to be a high school teacher when I've graduated.

Among the years, I've had lots of hobbies but quitted most of them - I've played football, basketball, badminton and a couple of other ball games and right now, my hobbies are bowling, floorball, jogging and as you can tell, rom hacking. I'm also a social person and get along with lots of different people. The strange thing is that I'm still shy with girls who I really like which is something most my my newer friends from university wouldn't be able to tell.

Now, it's time for you to put up some information of yourself ;)

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I'll jump in on this thread.

I'm a 22 year old guy from the United States (Alabama), although I have apparently led some people on the internet to believe I was from the UK at certain points. I'm sure this is because I like to use the British spellings of some words, enjoy British television, and have NPCs say things such as "Happy Christmas" in the Christmas Hack.

My hobbies include rom hacking, playing the sims 2, creative writing (mostly parodies and/or science fiction), camping, hunting and fishing, and other things like that. A lot of people call themselves contradictions, but I think I actually fit that description since people are equally likely to call me when they need their computer or car fixed, and you don't usually think of those going together.  I'd also enjoy a day hacking pokemon and generally "nerding out" about things as much as I would enjoy sitting out at the pond fishing, followed by camping and drinking a few cold ones.  If that confuses you, you aren't the only one. Haha.  I've also never played a sport, like football (american or regular), rugby, tennis, anything like that, other than just playing in the back yard with my brothers or outside before youth group at church.

I mentioned drinking, my favorite drink is either cherry coke or mountain dew, but when I do drink alcohol I prefer a Gin and Tonic.  As for food, I'm a fan of Mexican and Italian food, but also enjoy your American foods like Burgers and Hotdogs, Porkchops, etc.

As for education, I'm a college student, majoring in English. My minor is in Criminal Justice.

I'm not a member of any Fraternity or other "greek" organization on campus, I actually can't stand anything to do with them.  I am however pretty involved with the Baptist Campus Ministries on campus.  That being said, I'm not one of "those" Baptists you hear stories about. You know, the ones who wave signs and tell people they are going to hell for anything and everything and all of that nonsense. I can't stand "those" Baptists, and wish they would stop calling themselves that, to stop giving the rest of them a bad name. However, I don't actually consider myself a Baptist. I'm a Christian, and I do things with multiple denominations. I go to the Baptist church on wednesday nights, and the Episcopal church on Sunday morning. Heck I even help out with things with the Catholic organization on campus. I don't discriminate. Also since I said I'm a Christian, that doesn't mean I'm going to try to force my beliefs on you. I'd be happy to talk to you about them if you wanted to hear them, but I'm certainly not going to go to town on you and say "You're going to hell if you don't think the way I do" and all of that other nonsense.

I think that about covers everything.

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I just turned 19 a few days ago. I'm a guy from Ohio, currently living in a little town in Virginia. I live in an efficiency apartment by myself, have a beautiful girlfriend, and am most unfortunately unemployed. There are no jobs in this town and I now spend most of my time on the computer doing stuff like hacking Pokemon, or reading Star Was novels, or playing airsoft. I am what most people would consider "having no life". :D

I'm doing as much as I can, thank you very much. I'm trying to go to school to be a machinist but unfortunately my funds aren't allowing it at the moment.

My apologies if I'm incorrect and no offense on your part was meant but that sounded rather rude to me.

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I'm a just turned 16 year old that has the looks of a 12 year old (in a rather annoying way) yet every program created to guess your age place me at about 35 years old. i am from hull in England. i am a average student but excelling in science and getting E grades in languages. i tend to watch TV or use the computer and have little in the way of friends yet somehow everyone knows me. i belong to no groups and an a atheist. never believed in fiction not even the likes of Santa. I also have a somewhat radical view of life - once everyone who would be hurt by my death has died i will end my life.... so yea. i use multiple persona's to hide who i am and i like animals more than most humans yet own none


Take the daemons from my mind and throw them upon the walls of tragedy
let the blood burn the words created by the forgiven ones
because as i lay in these bonds i know that i will never see...
for they have blinded me.

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I am 17 years old, live in New Jersey now, however I lived in Trinidad and France prior to moving to the states. I'm fluent in French, and I think I've got English down pretty well, wouldn't you? My hobbies are ROM hacking, track and field, swimming, and working out ( lord I sound like tool...) I love Pokémon and always will. I have a girlfriend named Stephanie who is 21, turning 22 in 3 days. I have four siblings, all brothers; my twin, an older 30 year old brother, and two younger brothers, 13 and 15. I work as a lifeguard during the summer and teach adults to swim during the school year. I'm not a straight A student but I get decent grades and plan on attending a college out of state. I have many friends and love to party on weekends; as a result of my girlfriend's age many of my friends are older and can purchase alcohol. Besides that, I'm an all around responsible person and I love creative writing and reading in general. I'm into Stephen King myself, who is one of the greatest writers of our time and I aspire to be like him when I am older.

I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones.

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

I'm a nineteen year-old male from America, living in Iceland, with a Swedish girlfriend.

In Uni I learn Icelandic and will probably become a translator afterwards. I don't really do much, my hobby is the internet, walking around outside, and cooking.

I get really excited and start working on something, then my interest dies quickly and I switch to something else.

I definitely know how that goes! That's probably the #1 reason Secrets and Rumours is not finished. I get sidetracked with other projects because I work on it for a bit, get new ideas that don't fit it, and so I start a new project.

Hahaha yeah... luckily my girlfriend is also hacking Pokémon and is a "slow and steady pace" sort of person who doesn't lose focus like me.

Project ideas to date:
Officer Jenny version (hack of yellow)
Team Rocket version (hack of yellow)
Turn Fire Red into classic Red
"When Professor Oak was a kid"-type old-style game (hack of first gen)
"adult"-version pokemon game full of jokes (patch to kid Oak)
Translating Fire Red to Icelandic
My girlfriend is translating classic Red to Swedish

Ignoring the translations, my mind's switched between them a lot, but since the Fire Red one is easiest to work with I've got more of that done than anything else.

Re: Introduction Thread - AKA "What kind of person are you ?"

Heh, kringlur has an idea of a Yellow Hack I want to make in the future. Oh well, I'm sure it will be very different from mine.

I'm a high-schooler from California. I'm an immigrant of the US so I'm quite skeptical of the mindset of my peers here. Unlike you other people I am a recluse. :- )

I play and want to mod and hack Pokemon because I am attached to my childhood games, as evidenced by the fact I don't play past third gen or get the new games for Xbox and such. Hopefully I want to learn how to use scripting and ASM well since I'm planning some nice-themed games in the future. But I'm quite busy with school stuff so I'm worried that I won't be fluent in those two by the time I graduate.

I've heard this line many times :DD

No idea how but I've got time for school, friends and hobbies (including hacking).
I don't study that much though on spare time though (as my only subjects are chemistry and maths these days) but still happen to get good marks.

I'm a 15 year old male, living in Massachusetts USA. My hobbies are playing basketball, hanging with friends, being with my girlfriend and playing pokemon. At first glance, most people would NEVER think i would play pokemon, but heh they're wrong, been playing since it came out. I am going to a sophmore in highschool when school starts, and i'm a pretty average student (in honors classes besides CAD, Spanish 1, Geometry) i used to consider myself an athiest, but idk anymore, miracles have been happening later. I enjoy biking and fishing, and watching the sunset. ummmmm yeah i think thats it :PP

At first glance, people tend to get most things wrong about me. They over exaggerate one aspect of things I like to do and never see the other half coming.
