♂ Über Mĕ ♂

Have you learned something new today? No? Well I’ve got lots for ya! But let’s start with the title: it’s my crafty German/English fusion, wherein “Über Me” in this context stands for “About Me.” That aside, I really just wanted a pun on how “Über” awesome I am… 😛

That’s me, whimsical Markus, at your service. I’m just a guy living a simple – yet thoroughly enjoyable – life!
Here’s some quick, fun facts about myself: I’m level 27, but don’t let that fool you; currently residing in KW, Ontario, Canada; I’m a lover of chocolate and men alike… well, I can be pretty picky; I’m super fun to hang out with; and, not to boast the obvious, but I’m extremely clever and relatively attractive. My boyfriend would agree, except he won’t say it aloud.
Is that bragging too much? Oh well, I speak truths!

It was suggested to me by an encouraging soul to start up a blog, so I pondered it over, wondering what the hell I’d write about. I didn’t want it to be constrained to one mold, such as recipes, or book reviews, or art galleries. I wanted to be able to talk about whatever came to mind, whatever was relevant, whatever I felt the need to share. But what would I call something like that?
I mulled it over, wrote down ideas, and tinkered until something began to formulate. The word “snippet” stood out to me, as it means a small scrap or brief extract. And that’s precisely what I wanted my blog to be: small pieces of me and brief extracts from life. And, continuing with my inherited German twist, I played with spellings and puns, ultimately resulting in the birth of Schnipp Its! My first post ever was back in 2012, January 2nd.

I have a great support system from my family, my bestie Ms. Anne, my handsome boyfriend Teddy, and my great bunch of friends! Without your guys’ encouragement, your indulgence of my dabblings, and your editing assistance, I wouldn’t have made it very far! Thank you for your continuing love and support!

Within these digital pages you’ll find a combination of madness, quirk, abrasion, hilarity, and just plain fun.
Who knows, maybe one of my posts will tickle your interest?! I encourage you to take a peek when you can. 🙂 Amongst the mix of privy tales and newsprint articles, I’ve also shared music clips of bands I regularly listen to, so as to share their talent and boost your musical horizons!
