Florida is lame. And hot. I wish I lived Finland, or a country boardering it. I play drums and listen to music as much as I can. I listen to metal. I listen stuff from Turisas (symphonic folk metal) to Children of Bodom (melodic death metal). I really like a lot of prgressive metal bands (Protest The Hero, Dream Theater, etc.) and power metal bands (Sonata Artica, Dream Evil, Dragoforce, etc.). I like some pop-rock like Foo Fighters and Rise Against. Anything with fun drum parts. I like some regular pop (Lady GaGa, really) but I do not actually have her music on my iPod. I have to look hetero if someone checks out my music. I like emoticons, but try really hard not to use them. I am a junior in high school. I am in the IB program. It sucks, don't do it. I am currently endeavoring too write an Extended Essay for school. For this I am doing a character comparison between Dumbledore and Gandalf. It is posted in the Tolkien forum, if you want to check it out and perhaps add to it. It is an investigation, not a research paper; there is a difference. After school, I think I might study metallurgy and look into becoming a cymbalsmith (I really like cymbals). If not, I might go down some chemistry route. If neither of these work, accounting seems like a safe plan C. I really like fantasy. I have not read that much, but I think I am going to try and read a lot over the summer. I am embarking on LOTR now and have some other Tolkien books, too. I have read Harry Potter and the Eragon series. By read, I don't just mean read. I know my Harry Potter. I have read them x many of times. I am not perfect, of course, but I can answer nearly any Harry Potter question any of my friends or brother throw at me (a fun past time). I am fairly confident I know my Eragon more, there is just no one to quiz. I would get owned by a Tolkien quiz, you guys are crazy. I will be up to your level in not too much time! It is too late at the moment. I should be writing an essay (Ibsen, bleh...). I am apart of many forums under many different names, but I like this one. It's cozy. 17, by the way. Male.
