The name is Alex. I'm an American/Canadian, don't ask which one I am by default, as I really don't know and couldn't tell you. I have recently been honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps. I did 4 years and was an Amphibious Assault vehicle operator (AAV) and a vehicle commander for a short while towards the end. I have a strong interest in Russian culture, it's history and their military both current and in the past. I also enjoy Sambo, I would drive off base for a 55 minute trip to a club, but my deployment and field ops got in the way of it and also alas, I cannot find a club in my current living area. Hopefully some day I will get to finish what I started. *shakes fist at sky*
If you think that my input and knowledge of my life experiences can contribute to posts, please feel free to invite me to them. Otherwise I shall just lurk and read away.
If anyone can update me in Russian media culture please do.
I enjoy listening to DDT (I'm very aware they are old school)
I enjoyed the following Russian movies, please if you could recommend more, preferably if they at least have English subtitles available. I do have plans on studying Russian but I just cannot do it at this time, whether its ADHD or lack of discipline.
I enjoy wildlife and the physical aspect of enjoying nature, ie, trail running, hiking, and exploring. I plan on attending university next year to study environmental enforcement, I have a desire to become a conservation officer/game warden or at least something related to that. I plan on doing work as part of an anti poaching unit in South Africa for the white rhinos before I attend school.
If you have questions for me, please do ask, and thanks for taking the time to read this. (:
