I once was given the following advice with complete sincerity from a respected individual with quite a lot of authority:
"Invest in Lucky Charms and Cartoons.."
Needless to say, I listened. Although I much prefer Anime over cartoons and Fruity Pebbles over Lucky Charms, I consider it good advice to this day, nonetheless.
I have many hobbies, I live what I believe to be quite a full life due to my vivacious spirit and thirst for being alive, and being awake and that said, I most thoroughly enjoy the deep and vast field that is technology above all.
Technology enhances everyone's everyday life and it's nice to have a technical perspective when viewing Anime in general, in addition to just about any other modern day necessity! ;)
