There is no emotion, there is peace.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.

There is no passion, there is serenity.

There is no chaos, there is harmony.

There is no death, there is the Force.

—The Jedi Code

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Through passion, I gain strength.

Through strength, I gain power.

Through power, I gain victory.

Through victory, my chains are broken.

The Force shall free me.

—The Sith Code

The words above sum up the beliefs of the two eternally battling sides of the Force (and the world itself). The Jedi and the Sith. The light and the dark. The good and the evil.

I personally believe that the truth lies somewhere in between. Noone can exist completely without emotion, without passion, feeding solely upon harmony and serenity. The same goes for living only through passion, power and stength. We, humans, simply can't live on the edges for all of our lives. We may choose sides from time to time, but eventually we come to understand that all these notions are trivial. We do the best we can, for the sake of ourselves and the ones that we love and care for. Ultimately, we are neither white nor black. We are gray, and that is what makes us humans... Boooh yah! I rock right? RIGHT?? ...Geekness. Gauge. Maxed. Out.

After that little contemplation on "geekosophy", let me tell you a few things about myself. As you've prbably already figured out I am a fan of the Star Wars franchise. I completely adore the universe that the series revolves around, its people and ideas. Hyperspace travel, hundreds of different planets and solar systems, other intelligent forms of life... You get the point. (but the truth is I'm a total geek [keyword] for Jedi vs Sith battles and lightsabers.. :p Hell yeah!!)

Aside from being a Star Wars fan, I am also an ageless university student from Greece, hoping to get a degree in Electronic Engineering someday. I'm currently near the end of my nth year and things are a bit rough with the tight schedule and the many many courses. Furthermore, I have started taking lessons on classical piano, hoping to study at the Berklee College of music someday ...yeah. Apart from dreaming, I spend most of my time per day either studying at the conservatory or whatever.

My interests are (other than watching anime and reading manga of course!) playing the guitar/piano/jamming/etc, listening to mostly rock music (although I have recently started obsessing over classic, blues and jazz tunes), reading (novels usually), bowling, table tennis, basketball, video games, overclocking... Almost everything a normal person in his twenties has an interest for. Furthermore, I really enjoy going out with my friends, watching films, playing DnD (oh yeeeaaaah!) traveling, eating pizza, souvlaki and spicy food. And cycling. And-

Soooo... Am I a geek or am I a geek? Geek, going once. Geek, goi- ...Anyway, these are a "few" things about me. Anyone who's more interested (yeah, there could be someone/female who likes SW and anime and video games and rock music...  *gentle cough* let's just continue) just leave a message... ;)

The cake is a lie.

Hi there, whoa it took me an awfully long time to respond to your message. But then again, I'm also awfully busy :-). Yeah, I actually got my Bachelor's degree in Clinical Psychology last summer and now I'm working really hard to obtain my Master in Health Care Psychology. It's not easy and it's very tiring but it's also fun and challenging, so all is well here. Still enjoying life with my boyfriend Omurqi to the fullest.

It sucks that you haven't made it this year :-(. How's it going now? Have you changed your study, or are you going to try to do the same study again? Are there reasons you haven't been able to study enough, or is it more of a motivational problem?

My anime activities are not what they used to be, but I did watch some good series in the last couple of months, including Deadman Wonderland, Madoka Magica, Berserk, Kaiba, Kaiji and I've started the first third of Monster, which is also exquisite. Kaiba was particularly intellectual, Deadman Wonderland and Kaiji are both about high stakes games, while deadman wonderland is more about fantasy and kaiji is more dramatic. Madoka Magica was incredibly entertaining for me, but I don't know if it'll be the same for you if you'd watch it. Let's say that it's almost the only shoujo up to date that I like (it actually looks more like shounen but with fluffy and cute lead characters .... but well). Berserk looks like crap at first but is actually pretty brilliant if you push through the first episode. Monster is a really good series, well thought-out and full of suspense, I can really recommend it.

OP... I haven't seen in a year or so. I'm really planning to pick up watching it soon (or more accurately: watch 50 episodes to catch up). I'm also planning to do this with Naruto and Bleach, which I haven't watched for about a year as well... Bummer.

Anyway, we'll talk soon again ^_^

Wow, it seems we haven't talked in like ages, what's up? I'm busy with my psychology exams as usual ^_^. I've watched an unusually low amount of anime this year, but I guess it can't be helped and at least I still keep watching some shows. Have you seen anything good lately? I'm just finished with Nana (and if you like josei, it's brilliant) and am currently watching the 2nd season of higurashi. I have the feeling I should have done it a lot earlier ;-).

Well anyway, looking forward to your reply :-)
