Welcome to my profile. I'm midnightblade. I'm 25 years old.. I joined MAL in Fall 2012. I'm currently working part time in a really labor intensive job that I really dont enjoy. I'm a first year community college student studying Computer Information Systems. I went to college before but had to change my career path later in life so I went back to school.
In my free time I mainly watch anime and play video games.. sometimes I over prioritize one or the other depending on my mood.. I got into anime watching Toonami in elementary school around the years 1999-2000 and never looked back. Got into gaming early in life with Super Nintendo, GameBoy but it didn't become a serious hobby for me until I started watching video game related YouTube channels in 2010. I built my first computer in April this year, 980 Ti and all brand new parts. Was expensive so hopefully it'll last me some years to come.
I don't really have any friends in the city I live in right now. Most of my friends live in a city 150 miles away from me and I never have much money left from my job after school expenses or living expenses, so I only visit them once every few months. There's mostly a lot of old retired people where I live now but a lot of them are really nice to me though. I'm planning on moving to my state's capital city when I finish my associate degree program and get a job in the IT field.
Besides those things I'm a huge (American) football fan. Carolina Panthers are my favorite team, I've been a casual Panther fan since 2003, and serious fan (watching vast majority of the games) since the 2010 NFL season.
I watch anime with the philosophy of quality not quantity. I'm never in a hurry to finish shows just to increase my shows watched count. I can get burned out if I watch over 10 episodes in a day so I like to pace myself .
Current game I'm playing : Replaying Pokemon Fire Red . Doing a Pokemon marathon before Sun/Moon comes out on November 18th. Current team in Fire Red: Charizard, Alakazam, Pikachu, Hitmonlee, Lapras, Dratini
