I'm so bored that I think I'll write a short biography [Sep. 19th, 2003|03:38 pm]

I think I got at least a B on the test. It was pretty easy, which was a big relief.

Anyway, enough of the test. For some reason I feel like writing a little biography about myself--no clue why, but oh well. If you feel like it...

Okay, I was born on Jan. 15, 1987. I was a strange child--I used to stare at people until they looked at me, and then scream my head off. Social problems even then, I guess.
I had a pretty happy childhood, besides the divorce and some pets dying, and I'm very grateful for that. I won't really get into the divorce though. It caused me to suppress a great deal of anger because my "whole" family wasn't there, and that's all I'll say.
Anyway, when I was ten I discovered that the environment was being destroyed at a rapid rate, and decided that I wanted to work towards saving it when I grew up. A year later I read "The Hobbit". And after reading "The Lord of the Rings", I was hooked on Tolkien's books. As I saw it, they were my only escape from a dying world. I still love them but can now find solace in the world I live in, and what's left of the way it used to be.
Let's see--what's next? Oh yeah, two years later my anorexia started. I lost fifty pounds in a year, and was reduced to a skeleton. But then one day I realized that I wanted to live, and looked at my dinner and said "food is life". This phrase is what keeps me going--it's still a struggle to eat but I've gained back the whole fifty pounds.
And then came high school. Ninth grade was at the local middle school, and since I was used to the workload there I pulled off a 4.0. But then came the high school. After the first day I was scared to death--six classes, all with homework on the first day. The day after that I came home, did homework, ate dinner, did homework, and went to bed. That was it. And then there was that F on the first paper I got back. Anyway, my mother and I decided to home-school me. It was great. I learned so much, and still had free time.
And this led to May 2003, the month I took the Proficiency. I was sure I would fail it just like that paper. But I didn't. We got the letter saying I had graduated from high school. And here I am in college, where I feel so weird. But at least I'm happy.

Oh yeah, the computer--my sister convinced me to start an e-mail address in May (a major month, I guess). Then I joined LJ. Then I joined Quizilla. And the rest speaks for itself.

Anyway, feel free to copy this idea. It was really fun to write this all out.
