It’s the first day of 2012, and I’ve decided that I would like to write a blog for the year. I would like to update it daily, no theme, just talk about whatever is happening, or whatever crosses my mind. If you’ve arrived here for some reason without knowing who I am already, I guess an introduction is in order.
My name is Tyler Jacobs. I’m 23 years old and I live in a small town in Northern Illinois called Nachusa. My backyard is a cornfield and the only non-house here is the soon to be closed Post Office.
I am a geology student currently attending Northern Illinois University in pursuit of an undergraduate degree. Pinning down where I want to focus within geology has been a bit of a struggle with me as I find the entire spectrum of earth science to be incredibly fascinating and rewarding. Currently, paleoclimatology and the physics of glaciers and ice sheets are incredibly interesting to me, but I also enjoy things like seismology and mineralogy and hope to do a bit of each in my future.
When I’m not doing the school thing I spend a lot of time listening to and creating music. I love hardcore punk and the more abrasive, extreme side of music, but I also am teaching myself piano and love melodic, dynamic music. The ground between where those two loves meet is an amazing place.
I’ve met a lot of people and been to a lot of places because of hardcore and I plan to keep it a big part of my life for as long as it remains feasible.
I like to talk, feel free to add me to Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus… whatever.
