"Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day / Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way / Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town / Waiting for someone or something to show you the way."

I'm Leo Fox, and welcome to my userpage.
I was an Administrator here from February 2011 through to January 2015. Fun times were had.
I am a male New Zealander-American (Kiwi-American, you might say, but I cannot really identify myself as an American as explained below), who had the terrible misfortune to live in Las Vegas, Nevada - but is now residing in Dunedin, New Zealand.
I was born on Yakota Air Base on the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan to a military family, with my father serving as an Air Force Navigator on C-130E. As a result of this, I have been around the world (thanks to the United States Air Force), living in:
Japan (Yakota Air Base), March 1994 – December 1995
America (Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California), December 1995 – December 1997
Turkey (Izmir Air Base), December 1997 – January 2000
America again (Langley Air Force Base), January 2000 - March 2000
Germany (Ramstein Air Force Base), March 2000 – June 2003
Australia (Canberra, Australian Capital Territory), June 2003 – December 2006
America (Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada), 1 December 2006 - 22 August 2011
Due to my experiences overseas and the lack of time spent in the US in my childhood, I have found myself alienated from the American populace. The America I grew up hearing stories about no longer exists; the reality that is the United States of America today is but a shadow of its distantly past self. As a result, I cannot consider myself an American; feeling much more nationalistic (or patriotic; one of the two) towards New Zealand; my other homeland, and the one that I am much more comfortable and familiar with.
I left the United States, bound for the greener pastures (quite literally) of New Zealand on the 22nd of August, 2011. I arrived in New Zealand on the 24th of August 2011 at Auckland Airport, at 8:30 AM, before catching a plane later that afternoon to my final destination (so to speak) of Dunedin. Needless to say, my opinions are that I shall not miss the shithole I previously dwelled in. I am currently following a course of studies at the University of Otago to obtain a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Management; and concurrently seek to obtain a Bachelor of Science majoring in Information Science. Following completion of these, I aim to attain a commission into the Royal New Zealand Navy.
