I suppose I should take part in this topic as well, since I do have a few things I should explain about myself.

Name: Garrett J Vandenberg
Age: 18 (On Jan 12th)
Hair color: Brown
eye color: Hazel
Country:Canada
Favourite book: Thr3e Ted Dekker
Favourite movie: The Lord of the Rings franchise (including the Hobbit)
Favourite food: Lasagna, Chile, Burritos, Pizza
Favourite AIO episode: Snow Day
Coolest dream I've ever had: I don't know... I've had some pretty messed up dreams...
Occupation: Freelance audio editor/producer, composer, professional touring musician, high-school student
Cool things about me: This'll be a bit longer, because need to explain the bit I put in "occupation" about "touring" and whatnot.

I spend about 9 months every year touring around Canada and the US playing music with my family, and heading up kids ministry while my father preaches with a specific emphasis on how Christians can be free of addictions they struggle with. During any given service, I'll wander around the stage, singing and worshiping God with various instruments such as the drums, piano, bass, and the electric and acoustic guitar. My family makes up the entirety of the a none-profit organization called "New Generation Ministry", and we've been travelling full time for over 35 years (before it was called "New Generation" it was known as "The Phillips Family" and was headed by my grandfather Norm Phillips).

Through the skills I've acquired by playing music with my family for so long, and my love for audio drama and computers, I also ended up joining an Adventures in Odyssey fancast/parody/tribute drama known as "The Ceiling Fan Podcast" which is headed by my good buddy Kevin McCreary. I compose music for the show, play a few characters, and have helped with writing a bit for the last 2 and a half years or so.

The coolest thing about me, though, is my incredibly stunning face. Observe.

Come on baby, you know you love it.

And here's a better one of me and my best buddy.

Oh, and here's me and my mom. Ain't she a beauty?

Alright. So that's me, and case any of you newer members were unsure of how awesome I am.

Yes. I did take the picture. I'm a professional, obviously, since I have an iPhone.

Age: High School
Hair Color: Light Brown
Eye Color: Blue
Country: United States of America
Favorite Book: I can't choose a favorite book. I like Little Women, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, the Kingdom Series, and the Terrestria Chronicles. I'm sure there's others, but those are the ones that I can think of right now.
Favorite Movie: I can't really choose a favorite movie either. I'm not good at picking favorites. I like the Princess Bride, all of the Lord of the Rings movies, including the Hobbit, the new Chronicles of Narnia movies, the Love Comes Softly series, Tangled, Pride and Prejudice, the old really long version of it, the Sound of Music, and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
Favorite Food: Pizza, tacos, ice cream, and parmesan chicken.
Favorite AIO Episode: The Mortal Coil
Cool Things About Me: My family recently bought some land and eventually we are going to have a farm with animals. I plan to breed rabbits soon. I know most of the color genes of rabbits, horses, and cats. I've been homeschooled all my life, I plan to continue to be homeschooled until I get to college, and I plan to homeschool any kids I have. I play piano, and sing in a choir and ensemble.
Occupation: Teenager and High School student. Hopefully soon-to-be rabbit breeder.
I made a promise, Mr. Frodo. A promise. "Don't you leave him Samwise Gamgee." And I don't mean to. I don't mean to. - Sam from The Fellowship of the Ring movie
I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you! - Sam from The Return of the King movie

I can't believe it, nobody not nobody knows about Seven Brothers, amazing movie that it is, but you're the second person on here I've come across who knows it. It's fantastic being part of a board made entirely of non-normal people.
What an incredible, crazily unusual life, it sounds a lot like my fair Suzy's. But homeschooling and farming? Will you ever get socialize with anyone besides hillbillies!?
