about me

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... Ooooooh yah! I rock right? RIGHT?? ...Geekness. Gauge. Maxed. Out. XD

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 a 21-year-old university student from Greece, hoping to get a degree in Electronic Engineering someday. I'm currently near the end of my 4th 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 and modern guitar, hoping to study at the Berklee College of music someday ...yeah. Apart from dreaming, I spend most of my time per day either at the university attending classes or studying at the conservatory.

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 (as almost everyone who lives in Greece does; usually accompanied by a bottle of lousy beer) 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... ;)

Papoi.

Hahaha, it's funny seeing you getting all happy by me recognizing just a few words. It's kinda sad actually that i didn't remember more of them, makes me feel like i learned so little in the 5 years i studied greek :). By the way, dutch is a very unpopular language too (and difficult, i heard), i guess there are some 20 - 25 million people who speak it, but that's where it ends... So back at school we had to learn 6 different languages lol (english, german, french, spanish, latin and greek) , so i guess i kinda understand how you feel ;)... But you can't deny the greek history and mythology is great! I did love all the stories about the olympian gods back then... (By the way... yeah i recognized all the 'tourist' words, hahaha)

Oh, and if i really make it to 50 eps in one day, I'll definately let you handle the guiness thing, but i think there are some crazy people out there in this world who have watched more eps in 24 hours. I'm at least intending to get a little sleep ^_^, but yeah it would be quite amazing if i could pull it off.

Seems like you read me well, by the way. I'm lazy about a lot of things, but when it's nessecairy I can easily pull an all-nighter to study til my idiotic perfectionism is satisfied xD. I won't tell you my mark for my final exam of ancient greek, though, because i'll feel ashamed xD... Anyway, if i ever happen to have the time and motivation, I'd like to learn japanese! Listening to all the conversation in anime made me really love the language. Can't help it, I guess ^_^

Ah, and still not completely recovered from PAAS so I'm mindlessly browsing some series til i find something to devour next... But so far I'm not doing great, humming songs from clannad all the day, I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to things like this... Anyway, as i don't want you to get extremely bored of reading this really long comment of mine, I'll stop now xD *pops confetti in case you made it to the end*

by the way looking at the greek comment i see on your profile i believe i actually understand a few of the words :D he aletheia was the truth, right? einai is to be, polu is much or many? ountai is a verb ending meaning for 'they', and eis is the verb ending for 'you', right? hahaha it's two years ago since i had greek, but the writing is still so familiar it reminds me of all the painfull long wednesday afternoons of translating plato.... lol.

Hahaha, you'll always give me such a funny reply ^_^! Don't give me all the credit, though, PAAS is not something i came up with, i heard it from someone else before ;)! Yeah, clannad was surprisingly good, especially clannad after story (second season), but damn did it piss me off the first few episodes xD. Indeed, it's a bit chibi, sweet and untainted... Not the kind of rough pirate thing we are familiar with, so it does take some eps to get used to it... Still.... it instantly went second place in my top list (After story). Clannad's pacing is slow in the beginning, and it takes about 10 episodes before you figure out what the series is really about, but i thought it was quite amazing. It deals with some different kind of story lines that initially seem to have nothing to do with eachother, but they connect to make a whole story. And though I'm not sure a diehard action/adventure fan like you would like it, a change of pace might be nice once in a while ^_^! I cried like a little kid watching it, believe it or not!

Ah, another unbelievable thing, i have to actually start studying now if i want to pass my methodology exam next monday *sigh*... I've almost forgotten what it's like to study and put a lot of mental effort into something, lol. But I guess it's not a big deal, you're way busier than i am :).

Lol, my personal record... In may my parents and brother are going on vacation for a week, so I'm planning to break my record in that period, being home alone *pops confetti*. Generally, if i watch too much, they won't stop complaining to me about me wasting my life on anime xD. My ultimate goal for that week is to watch 50 eps in one day, even if it's just once, hahaha! Pretty crazy, huh?

Groetjes! (as we say in dutch ^_^)

Oh geez, I'm having a really AWFUL post-awesome anime syndrome at the moment T_T... Just finished Clannad after story and it was so good, sad and touching I just want to see more of it and it sucks so much that i finished it xD... aaarrrghhh! *spreading out an air of genuine frustration* xD. How about you, watching anything interesting at the moment?
