Voluntas aegroti suprema lex
"Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see." – Arthur Schopenhauer
My hometown is [Florida] and I lived in Florida for most of my life, until recently when I moved to Louisville. I study mainly on my own and have since I was a child. I am currently researching various topics in medicine, finite math, calculus, Japanese, and Greek mythology. I also do web design and know several programming languages. For leisure I like to play video games and have been reading Sherlock Holmes stories lately. I believe a person's education should not be limited to schooling, and in fact schooling only gets in the way of learning. I'd like to study several other languages, besides the ones I already know. I'd like to dip into Latin, Arabic, Mandarin and Cantonese. After all, we English natives know a lot of Latin already. But thanks to Wikibooks, I've been extending that knowledge far further. I also need to extend my knowledge of German and Spanish, and eventually master Japanese. I'm of German, Irish and Ashkenazi Jewish heritage and born again in Christ.
I am currently diagnosed with Graves' disease, Crohn's disease, cholelithiasis, scoliosis, and syringomyelia. Rather than hiding the fact that I am ill, I am open about my situation and advocate for better patient treatment. I believe that illness is nothing to be ashamed of.
I regularly study the subject of Medicine in its broad sense. I began extending my knowledge of different diseases through pathology and neurology. Right now, I'm interested in the romantic history of Al Andalus, Islamic Spain. I've always had a love for ancient Persia too. I'm enthralled with the Medici dynasty and how a merchant family could overthrow the Holy See.
