About me[edit]

I created my account on January 16, 2012, but didn't actually make any edits until July 16. My first vandalism revert was on October 19, but I haven't reverted any vandalism since then.

I'm Catholic. I have PDD-NOS, ADD, dysmetria, and self-diagnosed dysgraphia, and am proud of them all. My major interests are developmental psychology and articulatory phonetics, but since I'm not an expert on either of them, most of my major edits are on pages relating to fiction.

I'm a moderate eventualist, a moderate anti-statusquoist, a communalist, and a semi-factionalist. See meta:Conflicting Wikipedia philosophies.

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.
