Hitchhiker's Guide to the Internet

Actually sort of I'm sort of an internet drifter... err hitchhiker. Ever since I read the book Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, I've been moving from board to board dependent on what I'm interested for however many months. I was spending my time at a The Matrix Community Message Board before finding H2G2 after reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Before that I spent my time at Virtual Battle School. It's a board in which people write for characters based on the book Ender's Game. Soldiers, commanders, launchies, Janitors, you name it. Of course a decent command of the English language is prerequisite considers as though there is a lot of planning involved in character interactions. Plotlines, events, and the like... This is also the board where I caught the writing bug and met my ex-girlfriend/best-friend.

I shall now go about building my ego, by saying that I am an aspiring dictator, arm-chair philospher, writer1 (of sorts). I will also mention that I'm an employed (chicken cutter) college freshman. English major. I'm thinking I'm gonna minor in random stuff, cause everybody needs a minor in Underwater Basket Weaving. Finally in concluding the stroking of my ego, I shall say I'm actually quite humble.

Another "Best of"

I decided that I am the only 18 year old, who likes the idea of coasters. Drink coasters, not roller coasters, though I enjoy the latter as well as the former.

Along with coasters (both kinds), I read copious amounts of scifi. I have passing interest in fantasy, mostly have read the works of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I highly suggest American Gods and Good Omens if you haven't read them. They are choice. I've read more Star Wars books than anybody should, then I realized they're a bit like harlyquinn romances.
