"Allow myself to introduce... myself..."

3년 전


Considering that I have already posted on here twice, perhaps it is a good time to say "hi" to everyone here.

I'm phoenix32, hailing from the beaches of New Jersey, currently residing in Philadelphia, PA for just over a year. I've spent the last 10 years as a loyal customer of Conquest Comics, a shop owned by my good friend Chris @Blewitt. He pointed me in this direction when I told him that I was interested in starting a blog, and I have to say that I am amazed at the community here! I promise that I will delve further in as I can, as I have graduate studies and prayer life at a Catholic seminary which are my primary focus.

As one who frequents a comic book store, and as is evident from my other posts, I think it would be pretty obvious that I am a nerd. Before going to seminary, I was a high school math teacher and an IT professional. Linux is key to my computing world, and in a similar vein from my previous post (https://steemit.com/comicbooks/@phoenix32/nerdish-commentary-the-great-debate-of-dc-versus-marvel), I happen to like both Mac and Windows PC as well as Linux. I'm not perfect, I freely admit that - I do have some level of tech snobbery, as I prefer Debian-based systems.

I grew up on Star Trek, Star Wars, Masters of the Universe, Transformers, Thundercats, Looney Tunes, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.


I have a great love for martial arts, although there's very little call in my life these days for being a swordsman. I was late to the tech game, well behind my friends at the time, and I felt left out, so I learned all that I could about IT. Music is an essential in my life, and I'm a true band geek. My course was altered by an amazing teacher for AP Calculus, but that didn't stop me from continuing on as a saxophonist and picking up the clarinet and the flute; like I said, I wound up as a math teacher. And I love a good math joke!


My friends are my family, so Chris and his awesome wife @reeseshara, and anyone who is close to my heart join them and my siblings, parents, niece and nephew as family.

My faith is so very, very important to me. I am a Roman Catholic, above everything else in my life. Jesus Christ is at the center of all I do. That does not mean that I think that I'm perfect - a church is not a museum of saints, but a hospital for us sinners. Yes, I stumble and yes, I fall. And I thank God for the infinite mercy and love that He is and that He gives (which is somewhat redundant, some theology for another post).

So that's me in a few paragraphs. I'm really excited to join the community here, and I look forward to checking out everyone's posts! Thanks for your readership! I'm glad to be a part of this budding community!

My little suggestions

You can also get extra cash by these simple ways of mining Bitcoin which also helps me.

Mining bitcoin is becoming easier to the extent that people can mine up to 1 BTC per month just by using CryptoTab Browser in their computers 💻 Check it here and see it by yourself https://getcryptotab.com/2325885

Share CryptoTab Browser with your friends and get additional % from their BTC revenue.
As you invite friends, explain that they should regularly use the browser for visiting websites and social networks, watching online videos, etc. Mining speed is higher when the browser window is active.
The more profit they got, the more you earn!

Please help me also by download CryptoTab Browser here from my referral link. It’s promote me as well.

Honeyminer is another America’s newly introduced mining program that can mine monero which is automatically converted to bitcoin for you, you just sell for extra cash without any stress, just put on your laptop or desktop, get the mining app open and that’s all!

Please also help me by download Honeyminer App here from my referral link.

You may also take advantage of this free bitcoin faucet and get bitcoin hourly without writing any post, just fill captcha every hour and claim your free bitcoin.

It’s working for me.

Remember to tell your friends and put smiles on their faces.
