After being a lurker for a couple of years i finally decided to join up. I used to just look at threads concerning sci-fi technologies such as time
travel/UFO's, but over the past 6-12 months I have become interested in a variety of subjects. The main subject that has caught my attention is the
current state of politics in the US. It may seem silly but I am actually more interested in US politics than I am in my own country,England.
I am 19 and I was predicted straight A's in my exams in year 11 in 2010 (after a quick google search i think thats the equivalent of 10th Grade in
the US) but after stupidly thinking i was too smart to fail my exams, I stopped going to school and sat at home playing video games. In the end i
never took my exams. (Yes I know lol. Stupid move.)
Over the last couple of years I became depressed after realising the mistake i made and am currently trying to
get myself sociable again (I also stopped going out of my house through fear of ridicule from my peers. I was always confident about my intelligence
until I dropped out.Then i became upset that i threw it all away.)
My dream was always to become an astronaut but that of course is now near impossible through my lack of qualifications, however, I have always been
somewhat lazy so I don't personally think it would have happened either way.
The only sport i really like is Football (soccer) and i support Manchester United. I did watch the recent superbowl for the first time and thought it
was enjoyable apart from the power going out lol.
I don't claim to know everything, and like most of you, I am here to learn.
Hope it wasn't too long. Thanks for reading.
