About Me

My name is Christopher Everett Tracy. I started this blog back in 2010 whilst living in Thailand. Since that time, life has taken me on quite an adventurous ride. My previous about me page was anything close to about me, but rather a tale of where I had been and how I got there. So with that in mind, here is me.

I am a man of many loves and passions. As you can tell from this blog, I love literature and travelling. Back in 2006 I made a goal to go somewhere new every year. Then in 2012 I changed it to include doing something new every year if I cannot go somewhere new. Because of this, I have seen and done many incredible things. I try and live by the philosophy that we have but one life; we need to live it. Too many days pass us by where we wish we had done more, seen more, said more, lived more, loved more. And with each next day we vow to spend the time we have doing such. Sometimes we succeed, and sometimes we just try and relax. But as long as we keep moving forward, no day is a waste; simply a learning experience.

Over the last few years, I have learned to let my geek flag fly and be proud of it. I am a huge gamer and lover of comic books, anime/manga, superheroes, and more. I am a huge Assassin’s Creed fan and total Final Fantasy lover. I honestly cannot pick a favourite superhero although I’m a huge fan of the X-men. As for anime/manga, I love Naruto, Blue Exorcist, Fullmetal Alchemist, and am always looking out for others.

Other passions include music and soccer. Soccer (football for everyone else) is the best sport in the entire world. I’m a huge Germany National and FC Barcelona fan. I also support Hull City and enjoy watching ManU and Liverpool. As for music, I like almost all types except country and screamo. Can’t stand country. Anyway. Some of my favourite bands/artists include: anything Beethoven, Red, Hedley, Within Temptation, Piano Guys, Enya, Basshunter, Cascada, and many more. I’ve played piano since I was 7, violin since the 5th grade, trumpet in 6th, had a guitar since I was 18, learned percussion in college, and sang my whole life. Music is a huge part of my life.

And obviously, I love to write. Besides a blogger I am an author (see below for my website and Facebook page). I also write poetry, but that tends to come sporadically and sometimes I can go months to years without the inspiration to write one. Some of my favourite authors are Robin Cook, Lilian Jackson Braun, Jenny Nimmo, Cornelia Funke, and J.K. Rowling. I’m always finding new books and authors so naturally there are many more.

Well that is some of what makes me me. I sincerely hope that as you follow me on my blogging journey through books and the world you will play an active role by giving me tips/advice/recommendations about books and travel. All the best. And if you want to know more about me, just ask 😉

UPDATE (5 Aug 2016):
I have made a huge step in my life and bought a domain name for a business I plan to launch next year. It is a huge deal for me and I am very excited, but also very nervous. I will be posting more about this as I progress towards the launch date. I have all the social media sites as well so I can’t believe how real this feels. I appreciate all the love and support from everyone as I begin down this road. Thank you!!! 🙂
