Everybody's so interesting. =3
Well anyway, I'm 17 and homeschooled, and dual-enrolled at the local community college working on an Associate of Science degree, and graduating high school this May.
after I graduate, I'm off to a Boy Scout summer camp for 5-6 weeks to work as a lifeguard. Best summer job I could ask for.
I'm working towards getting my driver's license, hoping to have it sometime this March; I don't know how many of you live in Tennessee, but the laws for going from one's permit to driver's license are seriously convoluted. Soo it's taking a helluva lot longer than I'd planned.
I'm on a swim team and have been on there for about five years, which is how I got the lifeguard job in the first place. However, swim team really is not as fun as it sounds. I'm going to drop out to focus on academics after this summer. I'll take up cross-country to stay fit.
Physically, I'm kinda small. At 17 years of age, I'm 165 cm and 54.4 kg (5'5" and 120 lbs, for the metrically challenged). So that puts me at about a head shorter and 15 pounds lighter than most guys my age. I'm not skinny, but I am quite slim. I've been told that I have a feminine figure, so I guess that's a plus. I just eat healthy.
I play piano/keyboard and adore electronic music software. (There's links to my music in my signature, if you want to hear some) I'm not in a band ~yet~ but I have a friend who plays drums and his brother and several of his brother's friends are musicians as well, but outside of one hour-long jam session, we've never really played together. So I'm really just a solo artist as of now. I've got one eight-song album and one additional single so far on SoundClick, with styles ranging from ambient to hardcore industrial, so I guess you could say I produce a very eclectic mix of electronica. Outside of keyboard and software, I an play just about any string or percussion instrument you place in front of me; woodwind and brass are just not my thing at all. It's actually kind of interesting though; my family has virtually no musical background but I can pick out odd time signatures and can learn a song of moderate difficulty by ear in an hour. It's something I think I'd like to make a career out of, or at least a side job for extra money if I need it later in life.
I'm single and gay, which is kind of an awkward situation when you live in Tennessee, the homophobia capital of the USA. I guess you could kinda say I'm bi, but only in the sense that I'd only be in a relationship with a girl to go with the flow of things. She'd just be a close friend who I'd call "baby", I guess.
As for video games, I'm trying to focus my energy and time on other things that I find enjoyable. Plus I can spend my money on other things, seeing as I'm the one earning it now. The last games I'm probably ever going to get are Pokemon Black & White. (I'm buying both, but about a month after the initial release when the local Gamestop does a slight markdown) My friends bug me about getting them sooner, but video games just aren't a huge priority for me anymore. I get caught up more in the music and art style than the actual gameplay. XD I suck at any and all shooters, be they first person-third person, and multiplayer RPG games, so just about the only video games I have any experience in at all are Pokemon, Metroid, and CastleVania. So yeah...I can definitely be spending my time elsewhere. XP
I'm in a Venturing crew also. Think Boy Scouts, but co-ed and youth-run as opposed to boys only and led by adults. It's a very fun program; we do all kinds of activities from rock climbing to whitewater rafting and camping. I've also made a ton of friends through Scouting; at least as many as all my other activities combined if not more. So yes, I'm hugely social.
So that's me.
Glad you could take the time to read down this far. Take care~
Peace n' love,
