You just graduated high school three years ago? With your depth of knowledge and interest in sharing it I'd think you'd be much older - and am happily
surprised. Good upbringing, I'd assume.
Gallatin High School, Class of 2010. I'm often told by my parents and family friends that I'm much older at heart and mind than I am in body. I didn't
have many friends to preoccupy my time growing up as a youth, my mother left when I was 7 and my father worked 25/8 to take care of my elder sister
and I. She wasn't much around either because she was more socially accepted. I took it upon myself to be immersed in my studies and reading. I was
reading 4th grade books in the 1st grade, and received numerous student awards from my teachers for being so persistent and doing so well on my
reading tests. I was diagnosed with ADD and ADHD when I was roughly 12-13, and they attempted to pin bipolar disorder on me as well. I used to take
adderol and strattera(sp?), but I took myself off of them. It was affecting my school work, and after that point from being moved and thrown around so
much, I stopped taking an active role in schoolwork. It was always quite easy for me to do and 'get', I just felt like it was all.....BS. I refused to
do work because I hated being there. My peers were the ones who made it most difficult on me. I still graduated on time, never once failing a grade;
something none of my siblings accomplished.
I felt shunned a bit my peers because they always treated me like the pink elephant nobody wanted to acknowledge...Since I graduated, I have just
preoccupied myself even more with studying numerous subjects like medicine & nutrition, law, metaphysics, spirituality, and other forms of
esoteric/occult study. I go to my own university of whatever I want to learn. I used to be an avid gamer and would enjoy nothing but sitting for hours
on the N64. At some point here a few years ago, I realized it was a waste of my time, and I should focus that portion to studying.
My guiding light is my own sense of intuition and desire. I was brought up rather well by my father even though he worked himself to the grind to
provide for me. He taught me respect for my elders, and that knowledge above all else is the most important thing. My father is very brilliant at the
age of 57, and I often enjoy sitting and watching Jeopardy with him. He's quite good at it, and I have encouraged him to try out.
