About MeHi! My name is Carson Jenkins. I am 17 years old. I am a student at GGC. I am the multi-instrumentalist band director/youth leader at C3YTH in Lawrenceville.
I am a dual enrolled student and this is my last semester as a high school student. I have a younger brother named Truman, he's fifteen. I live with my parents, and my papa(grandfather on mother's side.) lives with us. I've lived in Dacula, GA my whole life. I worked as a little league umpire for almost two years and then I got a job at Tropical Smoothie Cafe. I've been working there since April 2017. I am a sanguine melancholy. Those are two of the four temperaments of the human mind. Sanguine people are very fun loving and let trouble roll off their shoulders, and melancholy people feel their emotions very intensely. I'm internally a really weird mixture of personality, but don't worry, when I'm around people, I really only show the sanguine fun side. ;) My Meyers-Briggs is ENFP, the campaigner. I love complicated table top games like Dungeons and Dragons, or Star Wars: Imperial Assault.
The picture at the top left of this page is my dad, my cousin Jonah, and me, at a Death Cab for Cutie concert. This was a momentous occasion for Jonah and I (both wearing the band's t-shirts), because he and I had been trying to go for SIX YEARS. We finally made it on October 19th 2018. It was more incredible than we could have imagined. On the bottom right is a picture of me with my little brother, my best friend Diana, and two other wonderful human beings named Kalaih and Adagia. This photo is at my 16th birthday party. Where once again, I'm wearing a Death Cab for Cutie shirt in this photo too. Big surprise.
I am a musician, as I mentioned earlier. I write a lot of music as well as lead the youth band. I've written about 4 albums worth of music under the name paintingourskyline. I have also recently started a project with Jonah. We are a progressive duo, called Two Busses. and we are going to treat our band like ' 'Broken Social Scene,' ' where there is a rotating cast of characters from album to album, but it centers around a couple people who stay in it.
I am a business major, and I plan to start a guitar company using that major. I am going to build up the next Fender or Epiphone. I also plan to learn to build guitars as a side hobby. I think being a luthier would be the coolest thing ever. A luthier is someone who builds guitars from scratch.
I love music. 90% of every genre of music is awesome, but there's always that 10%. Example, for Rock, it's Nickelback... a$$holes. My favorite thing to do is play instruments/sing. I play guitar, bass, drums, keys, violin, ukulele, and the list is growing! By far my favorite instrument is the guitar, but I am most competent with drums. My favorite bands are, Death Cab for Cutie, Coldplay, Paramore, The Dear Hunter, and The Paper Kites. A couple solo artists I love are Bon Iver, Ben Gibbard(lead vocal for DCFC), and Dustin Kensrue. I'm slightly obsessed with Star Wars, and dogs. That's my whole life, God, Star Wars, dogs, and music. Pitbulls are the best dogs if you raise them correctly. Golden retrievers are also dope.
ReligionI don't enjoy, in fact, I greatly dislike the concept of religion. My beliefs are similar to Christianity, but I believe religions are composed of man-made rules. In Christianity, most denominations believe that God wants to have a relationship with you, but they tack on rules to follow. "If you don't follow those rules you'll go to hell." That is not true, it says in the Bible that God's love is unconditional. That is my main belief, I dig that belief and the belief that the Bible is the living word of God. I don't dig the word 'religion.'
I'd love to visit Japan, or even live there for a time. It interests me very much! Learn About It Here
