    I know a lot of people have done this thread before, but I'm on here so much talking to ya'll, and yet I don't know so much about you...
    Can we all have an honest discussion and tell everybody a little something about ourselves and a picture if you're comfortable with it?

    My name is Andrew, I'm 16, live near Atlanta and I'm into mountain biking and classical guitar. I have been home-schooled my entire life and not to brag but I feel a lot more "well rounded" than my public schooled peers I know just from the spare time I've had over the years to just run around outside and be with my family. I'm a die-hard fan of Calvin and Hobbes and Green Day, mainly because GD songs bring back incredibly vivid memories of my childhood. When I finish high school, I plan on studying something along the lines of Marketing Research, and duel-enrolling college and high school as a senior. I have been a Boy Scout for almost 4 years now and am aiming to earn Eagle Scout (highest rank and freakin painstaking to achieve) by this Fall. I have managed to develop a hatred towards most deep fried foods, and I absolutely adore steamed broccoli. When I was less than 1 year old, my mother sat me on the counter while she bent down to get something out of the cabinet. I slipped off the counter and fell towards the ground, but when I was about 3 inches from impact, I stopped in mid air and was gently laid out on the ground. My mom would never lie to me, and that doesn't sound like a hallucination. Pretty weird/cool/creepy all at the same time. I don't have a lot of good pictures of myself saved on this computer, but here's the most recent I have, as well as a picture before getting my hair cut.

    Hi my name is Charles i have been home schooled for about a year and a half now. I like it alot especially how i get to make my own schedule. I'm not a hardcore gamer but i can probably beat half of the people here. (not to brag) I really love a lot of different types of music ( Jazz, R&B Classical, Hip Hop ,Rap) Ive lived with my father for pretty much all of my life and I wouldnt have it any other way. My dad and I know each other like we know that 1+1=2. (do you think that is a weird analogy?) Im from Gary,Indiana i lived 3 blocks from Micheal Jackson's original home. I moved to California a little over a year ago. Im a actor (yes seriously) This is my favorite forum in the world! And heres some pics of me i have a chromebook and i havent taken alot of pictures. Also my camera is horrible so the quality of the pics arent the best

    You should be able to guess my name by looking at my username, my age and location are on my profile so I don't think I need to say those.
    I was passed around schools all of my life, failing in pretty much every class all the time because I had no motivation to do any work, preferring to read the lessons and learn on my own. Back in 11th grade, I was pretty depressed and no longer cared about my grades by that time, well my history teacher gave me some of the work I had missed to catch up on and I did some of it, though not enough to pass the class. He graded the assignments, and told me something that helped me get past my depression and care about my future. He said, in front of the class, that he pushed my grade up to passing because he couldn't fail a genius.
    I have social anxiety, so I don't really have friends. My favorite things to do is spend time with my girlfriend and write music, I'm trying to get motivation to practice guitar more often and to start singing again, so I can start a band eventually to play what I've written. I also like to play games, but who doesn't?
    I guess you could say I'm strong willed, as I avoid anything that I don't like to show my disapproval, even if that affects me negatively.
    I value individuality over anything else.

    That's all I can think of for now.
    Here's my most recent picture in the IRL Pictures thread.

    Good thread idea :)

    talking about myself is funny and makes me feel egotistic lol
    I'm Amanda and I'm a senior in high school in California. I've always kind of been a "loner" because I prefer being by myself or with one person at a time rather in large groups. I spend a lot of time drawing, painting or writing and those are the only things I can do without being distracted. For some reason people usually seem to like me. If people got in my head they would be surprised. Most of the time I'm quiet, and come off as conservative or reserved in how I dress or because I know how to act at the right times. But heck, I'm nowhere near to that. I have a disturbed mind, and sometimes I scare myself, but I'm getting better (or worse?) with it. I used to think I should have been born a boy. A lot of times it's easier to talk to guys than girls because I feel that I'm not being judged, and I can be my weird self. I've lived a pretty normal life: live at home with my parents in a decent house, in a decent area, and I go to a good school. My life is still young and I look forward to how I will grow up.

    Oh, and here's a selfie, if you must

    Might add more later, this is enough for now

    3r4nd0n armator I feel you about the whole loner thing. I hate being pressured to live a social life, when it's not what I feel comfortable with. I'd rather live a simple, quiet life away from the majority of the media, schools, etc. the world is in such a crappy state, I feel that it's best to not be involved.

    It's nearly impossible to live without any influence of the media. In that case you have to choose to be a part of it, a follower, or make your own difference. I find that in groups it's harder to be myself and I'm often driven to act a certain way based on the people around me. It can be a toxic thing, so I spend a lot of time by myself. It is a good lesson, to know how you are around people while socializing. But it is also more important to know who you truly are. And that is why I prefer being alone.

    Hey, my name is Eli, well at least it is now and I am from London. I am just that weird kid in the bunch of chavy kids who keeps himself to himself out in public but when I'm with who I love oh boy do I let my autist free. I love a good bit of rock, basically any rock, I like football and I like playing video games to the extent of basic completionism. I currently study IT BTEC Level 3 (year 1) at college right now and a MTA I'm trying to aim for the top because I need as much as I can for reasons. Overall I think I wanna do something in the form of software maintenance or databasing or something. Idk. The best way to please a man like me is by feeding me anything with garlic on it, garlic is key, garlic is amazing and I absolutely love it, especially when it's the form of bread or chips.

    As a person, I really do swing either way and those ways are of two extremes, you're either gonna love me or you're gonna absolutely loathe me and my opinions of you will be the same. I don't really do the middle ground thing, I don't know why. Once when I was younger, I was going down some slide and I caught my knee on a sticking out piece of metal and now I have some huge square scar there from where it ripped out my skin.

    Uhh, here is a picture of me:

    staying true to yourself is such a complicated business, the general public just acts the same as the majority of other people, most of the time throwing morals and personality out the window, but if you don't act like everybody else you get left out. kind of retarded...

    This is very true.
    One of the reasons I respect Marilyn Manson is because he is big on individuality on that level. If people love you for what you do, then that's good. If people hate you for it, even better. Accept that not everyone is going to like what you do. It makes it easier to love the ones that do. It's impossible to please everyone

    My name is Dakoda Koziol. I live in Oakley, Idaho. I am 15 years old. I enjoy watching stunt and fail sort of videos. I enjoy skiing, and by next season I hope to get railings and 360's down (right now I'm limited to 180's and really big and boring kickers). I have one subscriber on you tube yet I've never uploaded a video. I live about an hour away from the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, one of the only places in the United States where you can go base jumping without any sort of paperwork. I don't text and drive but I have no problem texting on my bicycle with BOTH hands. I tried picking a lock and couldn't get further than the second pin. Wow, this is getting random. I can do a somersault full sprint but I can't do a cartwheel or touch my toes for my life. Other than this incident where I went the wrong way going to Niagara Falls and ended up in Canada for 12 hours, I've never left the States. A lot of the world thinks Idaho has rude drivers, UTAH DOESN'T EVEN COMPARE.

    My name is Christian. I'm a 19 year old musician and an adventurer. I'm currently recording an album, and plan on touring after it's release this year. I don't pursue anything artistic for monetary gain. I'm originally from Las Vegas, but in October I will be relocating to Seattle. I've been playing this game since 2007. There's a good chance my current track will be my last but hey who knows. This game sucks you back, just ask Stig

    My school has 2- maybe 300 kids (but theirs one further up in the mountains with about 10, I don't get how). I hate English. I can already talk, why do I need to label all of the predicate verb things? LOL I don't take any sports but ski club. How come some people end up in a cast for stupid things like falling out of bed? If I were that fragile, I would be dead. Yet other than fingers and toes, I have never broken a bone. My dad was in a rock band called Stone Angel. I like rock, alternative, and ska. I am going to shut up now.

    Awe, dude one day I was experimenting with carameled onions. I put them in a wrap with a few strips of bacon and loaded it with powdered garlic. I'll just say that it's one of those meals that tastes so good that without realizing it you start giggling between every bite.

    Well, I am very intelligent for my age (I hate bragging). I got a scholarship to my highschool that I will be attending next year. I haven't really told any of my friends about my scholarship because they tease me a little for being smart. I went from having 3 really good friends to having 25 pretty solid friends within the past year or so. I like my current state better because if one group of my friends are acting like aholes then I have a new group of friends. I am a strongly practicing Catholic and I come from a family of 5. I am the oldest and godfather to my 7 week sister. I live in a very nice neighborhood and I really appreciate how hard my parents have worked so that my siblings and I can have a nice life. I'm alsoluetely bored in school this year because I only need one lesson to learn equations and chemical properties, etc. while my classmates need two or three. I usually end up playing FRHD on my school ipad during class. :p I don't have a pic atm.

    I'm the same way, I can start a conversation with nearly anyone. I'm LDS, and I got you beat with 5 siblings (not including me), one cousin and one family friend in one house. :)

    Name's Moorea, 17, from California. I've grown up in the mountains and wouldn't have it any other way. I'm independent study, a 4.0 GPA student, and I play basketball for a local high school. Lifting weights and basketball are big passions of mine. I used to be a cross-country runner when I was young, before coming down with a medical problem that's relatively unstudied - it left me deconditioned and close to bedridden for a period of time. I'm still working my way back up from it. I play guitar, and piano to a small extent. Post rock, indie rock, and metal are my favorite genres. I've got a snarky, sarcastic attitude that's often misinterpreted, but I'm a kind and trustworthy person. A real catch ;) I value my independence and personal goals and don't let anyone get in my way. I love meeting new people and making new friends but I'm the type of person that needs a breather every once in a while; people tend to smother me. I've got quite a few unpopular opinions, being a gay, libertarian atheist, but I'm learning how to be outspoken and unafraid about it. That's about all anyone ever needs to know about me.
