Tell us one thing about yourself that we should know: I have an obsessive pattern that I imagine will continue for the rest of my life. If you'd like to learn more about it, check out this post http://bit.ly/av774o
For what reason do you have an LJ account?: It's a way to get my name out there, get myself known. Even if it's only on a small scale, a lot more people know me (and I know a lot more people) now than before I had my LJ. This is also in order to help myself stay dedicated to something. I hardly ever am able to keep up with something, and making sure that I write a blog every day is a way to acheive my goals set for myself. Character building? I guess you could say that.
Where did the username "docsaico" come from?: In my freshman year of high school, I joined the official 24 forum, where I gave myself the username SAICOCTU. That is an abbreviation for Secret Agent In Command Of CTU (the Counter Terrorist Unit, which is where Jack Bauer works). A friend on the forum took to calling me "saico" for short, and as a play on words, saying, "Well, you are a psycho, haha." Sophomore year of high school, I joined the official House forum and tacked a "Dr." onto the nickname "Saico" to create Dr. Saico. Friends on the House forum began calling me, "Doc." I started going by "docsaico" and now, that is the username I use for almost everything.
Why is your LJ titled the way it is?: "You don't get to be me, and I do, so fuck you!" is something RDJ once said in an interview. I LOVE IT. I think it's the epitome of self-confidence and self-esteem. I fully support people adopting that as their motto.

What are you up to now?: I am attending Full Sail University to obtain a Bachelor's degree in their Creative Writing for Entertainment online program. I have a full-time job working for a local newspaper. I have completed a 66-page TV script for an original show that I intend to pitch and sell in the next year. I have self-published six collections of short stories: Brimstone Nightmares, Modern-Day Horrors, From Blood & Brain, Bloody Apparitions, Shadows at Dusk, The Saico Chronicles, which is a sort of anthology containing every story from my first three publications. I hand make and sell Robert Englund approved Freddy Krueger jewelry and charms.
