My name is Adrian, and this a little bit about me.
I'm 20, and a senior at Florida State University. Odds are, we have something in common: I'm a fan of Game of Thrones, the books and tv series, Dr Who, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Whose Line Is It Anyway, Risk, pickup games of basketball, watching basketball and football, Chess, fantasy football and basketball, all things strategy-based, news, international anything, practicing my spanish, and more.
I'm also a two year veteran of the FSView and Florida Flambeau, the student newspaper at FSU, where I am a Senior Staff Writer. I specialize in commentaries on a variety of topics, including politics, international news, and gay rights. My political views are that I'm anti-stupidity.
So stop by to chat about the big stuff, the little stuff, or whatever is on your mind at the moment.
