Australian born, been here all my life, never left the state. Dropped out of high school, even though I was a solid all round student. I have a mental illness for which I am treated with effective medication. My parents divorced when I was young, I have 2 older sisters, two younger sisters and a younger brother. I did spend time studying the Bible with Jehovah's Witnesses, for quite a few years, but it turns out I lack commitment to anything that doesn't allow me to grow beyond "The Box". I smoked Marijuana for about 10 years and got into speed amphetamine for about a year, but managed to kick them both. I am pretty much just a Hermit now, I never really had ambitions or anything like that, I don't know if that is Nihilistic or if I'm weak willed or lazy, maybe just mental. I decided to try my hand at writing, specifically fiction novels, I finished one, which probably needs some work, and started another, two completely different genres. Generally I like to have discussions online or just learn what I can, see how it strikes me or if I can add to it, even just open up directions to explore.
Areas of Expertise
An idea worth spreading
I believe I have a lot of ideas worth spreading, ideas about society and psychology, or rather pseudo-psychology because I have zero qualifications. "Be excellent to each other and...party on dudes" or maybe "Don't start nuthin, wont be nuthin"
I'm passionate about
Learning, discussing and writing.
Talk to me about
Anything, if I don't have an opinion, I'll make one up.
People don't know I'm good at
Pretty much nothing but the 3 passions I listed, so anything within those parameters, I'll give it a shot.
My TED story
I'm a manager on another site and people talk about TED often, so I checked the place out, some solid work going on here, wouldn't mind affiliation. http://www.highexistence.com/
