So, hi! My name is Andrés, mostly called Andy, but hereon referred to as Tancho, and I’m really grateful to you for reading this. Gratitude aside, I’m a 21 year-old student from Guatemala that decided it’d be a good idea to use the tiny bits of free time I have to create some sort of blog about something. If you are one of the few people reading this early on, you’ll probably leave and never get the idea I’m going for, mainly because I have no idea what I’m doing indeed. Yet, if I have somehow carried on with this crazy thing (and judging by my track record it’ll probably remain unconquered), you might be one of the crazy people that decide that what I ‘ve got to say is interesting enough and would like to know what it was like in the beginning… And let me tell you, in the beginning was the word, and the word you’re probably thinking of right now is “profanity” and I wouldn’t blame you.
Anyhow, what I was going for was a simple introduction to the complex pseudo-sociopathic components that make up my loser being, so allow me to continue. I’m one of those people that like to write and think in a language that is not their own (you probably haven’t met one since it takes the right amount of hereditary insanity and screwed up environment to craft *points to self* this, but take a chance on me man [or woman, I don’t discriminate]). I’m majoring in Industrial Design (it’s like…google it), I’m the only child of a funny-girl-type lady and I’m fatbulous. What else… I’m sort of a study-o-holic, I waste most of my free time watching YouTube, but feel productive when I read (which I’ve taken again as a hobby recently), I can recognize most of the designs featured on Project Runway since it started, I’m under the impression that I’m funny, etc.
Oh! And by the way, I’m gay, like über gay, but I’ll try and not shove it down your throat every second, mostly because I’m running out of glitter. So if you’re homophobic or turned off by it, have a great day. Don’t call me, I’ll call you, mkay?
This isn’t what I was hoping it’d be, but I’ll just post it because I need to force myself to start at some point. I hope that over the next few weeks I can turn this into a habit and eventually start making videos or podcasts or something, just not right now. I don’t have a clear direction (obviously) and frankly, I haven’t yet come up with an excuse to explain to my mom and my housekeeper why I’m alone, yelling at a camera in another language in the middle of the night instead of working on my next university project.
So till next time, DFTBA and tip
