It's been a while since I posted a picture of me. I had planned to just put up a recent one, but today, I think I'll do a little extra.
In honour of 2013's approach, the summer of which will mark my tenth year as a member of these boards, a decade amongst the fandom, I think it's time for a retrospective look at Sam!
From a very early age, it was pretty clear where I was going...
Just look at that cute little Prime shirt
A couple short years later, I'd begin my original collection
A collection that would unfortunately not survive moving to a new home every year in the years to come, losing out to damage, theft and other disappearances...
Not long after, we moved from my original home in Langley BC, to a small town called Port Hardy, in the middle of nowhere (Seriously, to get there you get on an island and drive til you run out of road)
Skipping ahead many years, due mostly to records of my childhood being scarce, and my avoidance of cameras through high school, we come to 2003, the year I joined this site.
It was the last anyone would see of me without my trademarked facial hair...
I grew my hair out, and took to acting (alongside my younger brother, who did the same, seen here playing my son)
It took a full three years to grow my hair out like that, and I gotta tell ya, it wasn't really worth it, so after a while and with some insistence from my then-girlfriend (now ex-girlfriend) I cut it back down...
Which helped for doing things like this
I spent a good six years working at a gas station(well, I say good, I mean alright... well I say alright, I mean... never mind)
One night, my doppelganger was unleashed upon an unsuspecting populace
It was at this job I met the aforementioned ex, we got together, and broke up within the span of this occupation, but as luck would have it, I wound up really digging this girl I worked graveyard shifts with (okay, small town, I'd known her for a long time, and was friends with her brother, Brian, but we'd never really hung out, then we worked together, so we saw a lot of each other)... During the breakup with my ex, which hit me really hard for reasons I won't go into, talking to her really helped me out, but because I was so hung up on dealing with my ex, I never made a move, and sadly she moved away...
Here's me and Brian, on Halloween that year
Made the grapple gun myself!
Over the next year I got over my ex, got a new job, started getting out more
Started talking more seriously with Tiffany, the girl I used to work with, and after a few visits we were going out
Plans followed for me to move out of Port Hardy, and live with her.
And now I've moved back to the land of my birth (well, Surrey, it's close), no job yet, as I've only been here a little over a week, and it's the holidays, living with Tiffany and starting fresh with life.
All in all, that's me!
