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.
Learning, discussing and writing.
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"
Anything, if I don't have an opinion, I'll make one up.
Pretty much nothing but the 3 passions I listed, so anything within those parameters, I'll give it a shot.
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/
