I was always a smart kid, but I hated school. So I had a great GPA and got a 31 on my ACT the first try without studying, but I barely graduated high school due to excessive absences. I actually had to appeal to the school board and high school administration to graduate. Dropped out of college twice, 8 years apart, while I was on the Dean’s List and had a full ride scholarship. It just didn’t make sense to stay when I was making more money than the people teaching me. I’m a very pragmatic thinker, with a low tolerance for stupidity, and I am highly annoyed most of the time. But I think I do a pretty good job of hiding it.
I’ll add more if I get bored or if this page really needs to even be here. I just needed to put something on the About Me page that is part of this template. I really don’t assume that people even care to read this.
