Greetings ValveTime.net posters, and Valve company enthusiasts! I really enjoy Valve products and the Valve company in general (post Half-Life 1 products), and I feel that I will fit right in with all of you other Valve lovers, because, as I said, I love Valve too and I one day wish to be a part of their development team. Maybe as an Game Ideas Manager or even a writer/ploter. I've lurked in these forums for a few months now, so I feel it's finally time to get out of my shell and write some stuff about myself, get to know the community better, and help give a small step in making this site a little bigger. Bio I am Mingagag. I hail from Leeds, United Kingdom. My current occupation is a student, and I am majoring in Journalism while double minoring in History and Physical Education. I am attending Hull University full time, but I also have a job as a fitness instructor for some of the local gyms. Interests My interests are mostly video games, video game paraphernalia, and video game journalism. I have found the video game industry to be one of the most prolific, honorable groups to write for, and that's where I hope to be one day. I am a white, Anglo-Saxon, straight Protestant. I really enjoy the company of the female persuasion. Being a fit man, it is no secret that all of the ladies are very attracted to me and I am also attracted to them and also I like to make out with the ladies preferably on the lips and we can also lock tongues if that is OK with them. I also like to work out, and I bench a lot of huge iron so I can bulk up and flex my manly huge muscles in front of ladies. I am straight and I am not gay. If you would like to meet me in real life (of course if you're local to the Leeds area), please feel free to give me a PM and we can meet up. I am currently 23 years old, so drinking is unfortunately out of the question. I agree with Americans in that drinking should be reserved for people of the more mature persuasion, and I find that being 16 is extremely too young to be drinking any beverage that affects the psyche of a young man such as myself. Also, I pride myself on being extra fit, so adding beer weight would only serve to hinder my growth as a strong individual, both physically and mentally. I am a huge proponent of the no masturbation, no pornography movement. If you haven't seen the movie Don Jon, you totally should. It is about the dangers of masturbation and how it can seriously ruin your life as a male. If you are a female, you are probably not watching porn and instead you are opting to see chick flicks for females. Which is alright with me, seeing as I am a ladies man who enjoys the female company, so I think chick flicks are a good way to lock tongues and be intertwined in love, so to speak. I do not believe in sex, as I am Straight Edge and I follow the words of Davy Havok of AFI who started this movement. Why I am Here I am here to, as I said, help grow this community. I think my personality is unique and respectable enough to be appreciated by you "valve-timers" (what I like to call people who frequent valve-time.net). I also have aspirations to be a video game journalist/video game historian, so I figure if you guys like my writing enough, I can become one of these for your site. If not, that is fine too. I am currently in a relationship, so I do not want any of you to contact me about dating, since I am already in a relationship with a female. Do not contact me if you are interested in dating, especially if you are male because I am a straight male and not a gay male, whom likes to do things like date men. Accomplishments I am currently a Quadruple Dean's Lister and I have won many medals for my muscles and writing. I have once put an illegal offender of illegal things in a triple headlock and did a double whirlwind bodyslam, instantly killing him. I also listen to music such as: Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack, Coldplay, and Metallica. No, I do not like My Chemical Romance. They ripped off AFI. I also play guitar in a band of my own, Capture the Crown.
