Introduction I am Christopher Patrick Partida; born April 18th, 1983; 2nd of 4 intelligent boys bred from Elizabeth and Michael Partida. I've graduated from college and currently do web/graphic design. I am slowly tiring of web design and enjoy graphic design much more. I like to take photos and dabble in various forms of fine arts, though like books, I rarely finish any of my projects. I love to travel, and spend time with my loved ones. I've seen 3 countries: including around 43 of the states. I have been fortunate in life, even though I've seen some rough times. I keep my head up and live life to it's fullest. I've recently started many collections; some that I had already, they include: small creatures, records, vinyl toys, playing cards, cigars, photobooth photos, matches/lighters, knives, bric-a-brac, t-shirts, tattoo paraphernalia/tattoos, Sailor Jerry rum bottles & many other things. I have an addictive personality, but not in any way that might harm me. I spend frequently, sometimes more than I should. I try to work enough to keep myself afloat; it gives me a sense of pride. I haven't purposely ordered ketchup/catsup on anything in over 4 years. I plain gave it up.
Interests Loving life, music, art, food, good ass uptops, animals, run on sentences, cracking wise, laughing, movies, photography, tattoos, unagi, creating unfinished art projects, jokes, doing tattoos, the way Messcan girls look like, driving, me, I like liking things.
Favorite Movies La Vita E Bella (Life is Beautiful) is my favorite movie, I've got a quote from LIFE (Eddie Murphy & Martin Lawrence) tattooed on my arm and I wish I had a copy of the video from our trip to tahoe 2k3.

Favorite Books Back in 2003, my friend called me while I was in Lake Tahoe during the week of Christmas and informed me that they had caught Sadahm Hussein, he then went on to tell me that Sadahm's favorite book was the same as mine. That said, Ernest Hemingway once wrote a confusing, yet oddly amusing and erotic tale of a man and his struggle for self gratification, he called this book Old man and the sea. To the unlearned person, this was no literary movement, it was a giant piece of wtf? I love it, call me learn-ed. Hunter S. Thompson was more than most people think, more than just a drug-crazed reporter. His writing spoke out against the criminal injustice, and in favor of the common person. Animal Farm by George Orwell has always been a good read, I need to look into his other works, I hear 1984 is an eye opener. Miranda July has newly become a favorite author of mine. Her stories are so well written, I can't help but enjoy them. Robert Kirkman is responsible for a lot of really great comics including The Walking Dead and INVINCIBLE. Check them out. I haven't been an adimate fan of reading books, but great writers such as these, I largely respect.
