Hey, I'm doing this on my phone, so excuse me for any grammatical errors


Okay, so I just wanted to start off by explaining how a kid like me possibly ended up on ATS. It all started in the 11th grade. I was doing just fine academically and I made the soccer team, had close friends, but by no means was I popular and I didn't care much either. I couldn't change my whole character to fit in with this social image that society perpetuates so often. However, entering the 11th grade I had dreams of making the NBA (haha, yeah I must of been crazy) and my focus switched from the books to a basketball. My grades soon dropped, with me ALMOST having to take the 12th grade over again because of AP Statistics. Since I didn't make the basketball team and I quit soccer, which I had been doing for eight years, I sort of just had this pessimistic outlook on life. All my hopes and aspirations seemed to be fading away, BUT, weirdly enough something captivated me greatly. That something was Ancient Egypt. I was up late one night, not being able to fall asleep, so I watched the history channel. There was a segment on about the pyramids and from the moment I saw them, it even brought tears to my eyes (I stopped being a sentimental person years ago due to me being overly sensitive at times). There was this tantalizing nature about everything Ancient Egyptian. Luckily I passed high school (thank God), went on to a university to study Anthropology and here I am now. There are a myriad of other things which influenced me, but most importantly is the fact that I had this self-realization about myself opening my mind to try to seek the answers to questions which were plaguing me at the time.

I don't want to make this intro that long, but I'll end with what I enjoy the most. Astronomy, Archaeology, Poetry, Basketball (I've actually gotten much better and I participate in intramural) and Hip-Hop. No, not cRAP, but conscious, thought provoking Hip-Hop.

Hopefully I can add some insightful comments to posts and add to the already growing ATS community

Explanation: Flagged!

Personal Disclosure: Welcome! OL is sure a mod will be along soon to help out with an informative post etc. I also recommend utilizing the green chat voyuer function on the ATS tool bar to the bottom of most ATS webpages [aka the ribbon]! It will enable you to watch who and what is being posted in chat but unfortunately you wont be able to join or chat back until your post count reaches 200 posts or so.

Reply to this post with the reply function up top right of this post and that'll be another post towards your mandatory 20 posts before you can start your own threads

Please message me using the message button on far left ATS tool bar [after you have made at least 20 posts] if you require any further help whatsoever!

Peace and much love!

Sincerely OL [OmegaLogos]

Welcome to the board.

It's always nice and refreshing to see someone with a passion, I like that in a person.

I'm 19, but I really don't consider myself an adult just yet. I can be kind of immature at times ;P

Most of the people on here are probably way older than me, I assume.

Immaturity is not quite age dependent as you know. Some are mature earlier than others. Some are too arrogant to mature. I find ATS a challenge to mature.
