About Me.....

tia_1982 IRL


My name is Tim and I have one of the worst LJ usernames. Its not that big of a deal but I did not give it much forethought before picking it and I have gotten a tad bit of flack for it in some LJ communities. My full name is Timothy Isaac Allen and that too has caught me a fair amount of flack, especially during the mid-nineties when the T.V. show Home Improvement was in its glory days. I am a 27 year old male that has spent a majority of my life in the state of Texas. I grew up in Northern Virginia and also spent a fair amount of time in Northwest Arkansas intermittently during my Mother’s marital issues. I have two younger siblings (half), Sara and Kyle, from which I am separated by 13 and 15 years respectively. I often feel more like an uncle than a brother to them and was raised very much like an only child. I have a degree in Chemistry and am currently employed by a foam manufacturing company. In my spare time I enjoy camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, trying new foods, exploring new places, and recently took up running with the encouragement of my girlfriend. I also very much enjoy music and attending live concerts when I can.  I wish that I did all of these activities more often. 2009 was a kind of transition year for me and I now feel more like the person that I wish to be. I got divorced, changed jobs, and got a fresh start so to speak.    

The most important thing to know about me is that I am a talker and have a very bad habit of putting my foot in my mouth. This is something that I would like to change about myself or at least work on tempering. I like meeting new people and experiencing new things and consider myself very open minded. This is the Beta version of my journal and I will no longer be treating it like a Facebook page like I did on round one.  


Today I find out if we are having a boy or girl.  I have the best partner I could have ever asked for.  I will be starting a new job in a new state in 3 weeks.  After 13 years in Texas I am finally out of here.  What a wild past couple of years.  I am so excited that I can't put it into words.  Kelly is amazing.  I feel so lucky.

Sum times I suxs

I locked myself out of my truck last night for the third time in one year. I tried to keep it a secret and my whole cover was blown this morning due to bumming a cigarette from the locksmith. I just had a set of spare keys cut. Strike one: happens to everyone. Strike two: You should have known better. Strike three: You are an idiot. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!  

New Camera!!!!

I got my birthday present a week early!!!!  Kelly got me a new camera.  I have been wanting one for a long time and she got me a SLR Nikon D40.  I brought it to work today and took a picture of a pipe with some water and bugs in it left over from last nights rain.  It looks great.  I <3 my girl.  I always say that I want to take more pictures of or activities together and this camera will be awesome.
