* Personality `[/b]
- quiet !
adam isn't the kind of person who fills the silences. in large groups, he tends to stick to the back unless he knows someone. when he meets people for the first time, he doesn't say too much. he just doesn't really know what to say, what to expect from that person. when he gets to know people he doesn't morph into this loud person, either. he becomes more friendly, sure, but he's always been a little bit of a shy person.
it's been said by more than just a few people that this boy is sure a sweetie. he's the kind of boy that girls fancy quite a bit. seeing as he was raised by his mother solely, he is quite chivalrous, and knows how to treat a girl right. he is the kind of person who doesn't forget birthdays, and the one who is a good shoulder to cry on. even if he doesn't really agree with what someone is doing, he'll be supportive and won't make them feel like a total idiot. he likes to see people happy, so he won't make them upset without a valid reason.
although it's probably a given seeing as he's here, but adam loves music. ever since he learned how to play the bass when he was a kid, he's loved it. he is constantly learning how to play different styles of music, constantly writing riffs, and the person who would probably go crazy if his ipod was taken away from him. his mother did try to get him to work harder at school by taking away his ipod, and it sure did work. his headphones have pretty much become an extra limb, and his ipod an extension of his body. he loves singing just as much, and never had to be pushed into it.
not a lot can get adam to really freak out. growing up with three very dramatic younger sisters can just do this to a person. he's managed to survive all of the bad times in his life, and can remember not really getting to upset or angry about them. adam doesn't really panic about too much. whether it be a bad grade in school, or he's having relationship trouble. he isn't the kind of person that you would see in a screaming match, or a fistfight. he's more of a peacekeeper rather than the one who creates all the problems.
* History `[/b]
- should i write myself out of the history books !
adam was born in the heart of england, london. his mother, jane mary jennings and his father, joseph mark jennings were new parents. he was their first child, and they were but twenty years old each. jane was determined to make the family work, though, and adam was raised in a relatively normal household for the first few years of his life. his father worked a lot, sure, and they weren't really 'rich', but he had a family. his younger sister, julia marie jennings, was born two years after him, and his twin sisters jennie and jamie two years later.
and mark a place in time for every chance you took !
it wasn't too long after his sisters were born that his father left -- only half a year, in fact. joseph couldn't handle it and he just bolted, leaving no money, no nothing. just a note, saying that he wasn't coming back. he was sure father of the year. there was jane, left to take care of four kids all by herself, with just a low-income job to bring in the money. money was definitely tight when adam was growing up. unlike most kids who got a brand new bike every year, he got his best friends old bike when he had outgrown it.
don't get me wrong, i know you've got your life in place !
for the next little bit of his life, adam was okay. sure, he wasn't getting all of the things that he would have liked, but he did have family; his family was very tight, like peanut-butter and jelly. the kids, at least, seeing as his mother was hardly ever home because she had to work extra shifts to pay the bills. adam was super close with his three sisters, and became quite protective of them while he was growing up, showing his big-brother side.
i've yet to take a hint, some day i'll get the picture and stop waiting up !
adam discovered the guitar when he was eleven. his neighbour was trying to learn how to play, and one day adam just heard the music coming in. adam had to go and see what was going on, and discovered that he loved music so much. it was just so peaceful, and so.. controlled. he could do whatever he wanted with it, and create magic. after getting a paper-route job and saving up for what felt like forever, adam managed to get his own bass. not able to pay for lessons, adam began to try and teach himself how to play. he had picked up a few beginners books, but they weren't too helpful. with much trial-and-error, adam began to get better and better with his music. he had a natural talent for it.
when it all comes down to a sunrise on the east side !
when hearing adam play, his sisters decided that they just had to do something about it; so they entered him in a harmless, local contest. adam was skeptic about it at first, but the first-prize payout was five hundred dollars, so he quickly came around. he was only fourteen at the time, competing against eighteen-year olds, but he still practiced day and night and managed to snag second place, and a nice prize of four hundred dollars. people were impressed with the young boys talent, and he was offered a job at the local coffee shop to play an acoustic set two nights a week. seeing as adam loved the bass way more than he would ever love the guitar, he usually played the bass and sang when he was on stage. it sounded a little different, but still quite popular.
will you be there to carry home the remains of my wasted youth !
at the age of fifteen, adam was offered a scholarship to come to camp euterpe. he happily accepted, and came to a place where music was everything. it was pretty much his heaven, past the pearly gates. adam loved it, and learned a lot from the people at the camp that he decided to come back when he turned sixteen, to see what he could do and just how much more he could learn here.
