"Gagarin" is a Russian name. Yuri Gagarin was the
first man in space, a Russian cosmonaut. I'm not
Russian, nor did I know who Yuri Gagarin was when I took
"Gagarin" as an online handle/screen name/nickname.
It has been in use by me since 1997 - many people have
known me first as "Gagarin" since then, my real name is
I was involved with the online music ("MP3") scene when I
was in my early teenage years. I once visited an
Internet chatroom via IRC for several hours every day
for years, talking with people all over the world about
music and technology and... music technology.
My habits have since changed, but I am
always logged on
AIM. Always. Since those Internet
prospecting days - I thought the company I worked for
was going to takeoff - I became a
Christian, went to college,
had 2.5 heartbreaks (with just two young woman, you do
the division, I haven't decided who gets the extra half,
I thought I was going to be a journalist when I went to
school. I have since decided I should
teach instead. Or do short term professional
ministry? Or - or
just be a resident
somewhere? I have to be creative since I graduated with
an English major and Cinema Studies minor.
heavily involved in InterVarsity in college and that's
where I'll be working next year.
If you average my life out, the person who I talk with
the most is a girl named
lives in California. She's written me more letters
than anyone. I plan on writing a film paper about
the Reagan Era Technology Movies, but I don't have the
time to yet. I'm writing a series of exchanges
between two fictional characters and I think the female
character is based on 3 or 4 different girls I've known.
I don't know what I'm doing with it.
My father Chuck is a sprinkler fitter, my mother Pam is
a nurse. I sometimes wished I could have met a
sprinkler fitter's daughter, but I don't think sprinkler
fitters ever have daughters, and I wouldn't want to
meet a bad sprinkler fitter's daughter anyway.
I'm pretty sure my father is one of the best around,
at least in the northern IL region. I convinced my
mother she was really conservative. She works in
public health - Salt of the Earth. Our dog, Ozzy,
is really their third child. My brother
Charlie is the first doctor in the family as a
pharmacist - which is pretty incredible, we're among the
first in our family to go to college and we have one
doctor now. My friend Heidi bought this domain for me. My best friend is
Jeremy. I don't know if he knows this, but he
movies. I don't like the "all white meat" Chicken
McNuggets. Given the choice between love or life
I'd have to say that they are the exact same thing.
No love means no life. I think WikiPedia is what
the Internet was always supposed to be.
