In Ten Words...
About MeNot much to say really. Grew up in a loving upper middle class home. Very sheltered, but a seriously hardcore bibliophile. During the first 14 years of my life, I spent pretty much every moment not at school, which wasn't a lot because I was home-schooled, reading. From books I learned all kinds of things. The biggest thing I learned was a very simple truth: human beings suck. As a rule, we are violent, narcissistic, and terrible hateful creatures, and I started to realize this when I was about 7 years old.
Anyway, long story short, I became an extremely antisocial misanthrope. decided to go to high school instead of getting a GED. That was a mistake. Hated high school. Hated the dumbed down classes, hated the people, and hated the environment.
graduated with a very sub-par GPA and went on to become an apathetic, antisocial, and misanthropic adult.
The real shame is: I have absolutely no drive to succeed. I've flirted with going for a doctorate in physics because my AP physics classes were halfway tolerable, flirted with writing, flirted with mathematics, but ultimately I find that after a month or two of obsessive studying and love of the subject I get depressed and ignore everything for another couple of months, usually prompting an end to whatever activity I was engaged in before. yeah. Right shame that. fortunately I don't have much to offer the world anyway, so no big loss.
