10 Days - Day 2

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.

Day Two: Nine things about yourself.

1: I never finished college. Sad, really, because I apparently have a crazy IQ, which just goes to show that smart people can be really dumb. I went right out of a private college-prep school into college with no real drive of my own to do it, completely burned out, and dropped out 3 times before I decided that if I wasn't gonna stick with it, there was no point to wasting the money. Started as a psych major, didn't want to do medical school so changed to Radio, and never completed.
2: I've been in all three bodies of water that touch the main US (Pacific, Atlantic, Gulf).
3: At the age of 12, I got to ceremonially ring the Liberty Bell for a fourth of July thing. This was due to being a direct descendant of one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence.
4: Speaking of genealogy, my grandmother's hobby all her life was tracing our bloodlines. Among others in my background (in addition to the aforementioned Founding Father) are someone that came to America on the Mayflower, someone that fought at Valley Forge, 2 of the barons the signed the Magna Carta, William the Conquerer, and Charlemagne. Seems that rebellion against convention and authority (and the associated taking control and arrogance) are quite literally in my blood.

(note: this is actually sorta difficult, since I'm usually pretty open about myself...I'm trying to come up with things that I haven't already told and which don't either sound like I'm bragging or make me sound like a really bad person)

5: I dislike most porn. I love sex, more so than some, but I cannot enjoy professionally produced porn. If I can't relate or believe it, it does nothing for me at all.
6: My TV hasn't been hooked to the outside world for 8 years. I don't miss it. On the rare occasion that a show turns up that seems like something I'd like, I can it find online, anyway.
7: I'm no good with languages. Through all my school years, I've taken classes in French, German, Russian, and Japanese, and all I can ever remember is a few random words and how to ask "What is this shit?" in Japanese.
8: I have several large lumps under my skin, and I have no idea what they are. Occasionally, one of them might be a little sore, or itchy, most of they time they're just odd.
9: I'm a hugely social creature, I love having people around. At the same time, I'm fairly misanthropic. Reconciling these two things makes life really fun, sometimes.


Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever).
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.
