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.
