I am 15 years old, and my life is currently structured around a few things:

1. School: I attend a highly selective public school in Virginia. It takes up just over 12 hours of every day of mine, causing me to essentially fit everything else within or around it. Most things in my life are contained within or are affected by this fact.

2. Debate: I love to debate, and am an avid participator in my school debate club (to call me a "master debater" will be considered a compliment). I believe that debate and argumentation is the path to knowledge, which I value highly.

3. Crew: My physical exercise is attained through rowing for the school's crew team. The experience has affected me greatly.

4. Camp: I attended Camp Winnebago, a general wilderness camp in Maine, for 8 weeks for the past 7 summers. My time there has been the most happy of my life. I will be unable to return as a camper, but I will be visiting in the upcoming summers.

I also have several other interests (listed in no particular order). I am a big fan of the Myers-Briggs personality types (I am an INTJ, and a bit of an introvert supremicist). I am a hardcore PC gamer, preferring a variety of games. My favorite game of all time was The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, of which I was a huge fan and know too much about. I tend to wax philosophical from time to time. I tend toward atheist, determinist, existentialist, and humanist views. I enjoy playing with words and generally being sesquipedalian. I read a good deal and prefer fantasy books. My favorite series is The Dark Elf Trilogy by R.A. Salvatore.
