Halcyon1990's Profile Picture
Necessary, Lucas
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States

Nice to meet you. I hope you're not a stalker. If you are, my last name is Necessary (not a joke, or is it?), and my first name is Super Lucas. I really love hiking*! I really don't love things like falling off cliffs, being run over, etc. Want to see if I'm totally uncool? Here's your chance! In the past 7 years, I've done a few things, including paramedicine, working as a freight train conductor for BNSF (which was interesting, at least insofar as 37,000,000 lb vehicles can be interesting), and performing some job or other for Halliburton in the oil fields.

Being around me will inherently increase your social standing. I've lived about everywhere and try to be content in all circumstances.

Current Residence: In the Rocky Mountains! Mostly the Wind River Range.
Current Job: Air Traffic Controller
Personal Quote: There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is a proof against all argument, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is condemnation before investigation. (Verus amicus est alter idem.)

* I've hiked over 150 miles this year, mostly above 10,000 feet, with a large pack, and sometimes with snowshoes.

Yo.  Ladyface.

After listening to it, I wish I would retroactively say yes. But the real answer is that I combined Arthur Clark's novel with a love for a special friend and a desire for peaceful happiness. To be less vague, a friend of mine nearly destroyed herself, but I stuck around and didn't give up, knowing her potential. She used that confidence I had in her to push aside self-destruction and to succeed in every facet of life, which she still does to this day—and that confidence has itself propped  me up.

But I do think that Hal9000 is a bit cooler than Halcyon1990. :P

I was highly amused by Fallout 3 when it came out. The most immersive experiences I've had somewhat recently have been the SuraAI German total conversions of the Elder Scrolls engines.…  I really appreciate that the stories they tell aren't generic. Speaking of which, my interest in Bioware games has plummeted to just about nothing recently.  They go to such lengths to deliver pathetic "romance" plots that the whole game is ruined. Though I guess their writing hasn't been too hot for a while.

Totally off-topic garbage because I'm bored:

Do you game a lot? I used to, but then I dated a lady who had a little daughter and it like...destroyed my mind. It made it so that anytime I was gaming I'd get heart arrhythmias and all sorts of junk.  I hooked myself up to a cardiac monitor from my old work and did a diagnostic on myself over a long period...turns out that when I'd play games I'd get stressed because I "wasn't out making real memories" or something.  If I was out in the mountains, or out fishing, or playing games with the kid, or helping the lady with homework and stuff, 0 cardiac issues. Gaming or being lazy=freaked out. 

I guess like at age 27 now it feels weird to not have a wife and kids. I'm hardcore picky though and probably don't give enough people a chance. :)  But one of the end results is that I don't game very much. Only have one on my computer, even.

Hey Lucas, how's it going? Happy birthday to you!

Thanks, Jakob! Just living the life of an air traffic controller. Actually, my Canon 60D broke after only 9,000 shutter actuations, which is horrible, so I'm back on the old T3i. :P  Oh well, that's proof that I don't have many big problems in life! Thank you very much, man!

Uh, that sucks! But if everything else is going well then that's really not so bad overall, glad to hear that :D
So are your recent pics done with the old camera? Because they still look pretty great :D
Halcyon1990 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, the old camera! How dumb that it's still going? Blech!
