    Just wondering what y'all are good at. Do you have any real expertise on anything?

    You study anything? What do you know?

    lol same here -- i don't take a real interest in a whole lot of things... so i'm trying to discover a ton of shit that might actually interest me and cram it into my skull.

    too much stuff i just find boring.

    are you actually interested in any of that? haha

    the lesser of evils?

    posting on message boards.


    i know a lot about screenwriting. format and rules and story structure and all. but i haven't actually sold one, so i wouldn't call myself an expert.

    i studied literature and learned a lot about it, but, again, wouldn't use the word "expert."

    I'm an expert at some videogames. but that's not the same as being an expert "ON" videogames i think.

    oh yeah, so... it wasn't like some big mistake that you went into criminology class and were let down or anything though, huh? like, you just picked it, it wasn't like a degree you were hoping to put to use or anything...?

    when it comes to special ed. and stuff like that, i personally can see many reasons people would want to get into it, and i understand why the learning about it would be needed, but i wouldn't find the aspect of learning it all that interesting. i guess i see the road to feeling accomplished in it is a shit one... but once you're there you got something special.... no pun intended.

    i've been interested in screenwriting and such since i was 16. i guess that's what... wow, 8 years... and i ain't done shit in it. when i was 16 i wanted to BE a screenwriter. but yeah, i still like to follow the profession from time to time. so i started learning all that format and stuff back then... my problem was that i was into the idea of it, but i never actually sat down a wrote a finished first draft script even. i'm still one of those writer-types though, so maybe one day after i accomplish myself in other areas i might actually sit down a pump one out -- i'm not invested in it though.

    lmao i'd put money into business, but yeah, i'd probably do some of that too. the classroom environment is fun. i doubt i'd earn any degrees though.

    a few more things:

    - I'm really good at making money no matter where I'm at.
    - I have the art of scoring chicks down to a science. I could whoop that Mystery guy's ass.
    - I'm naturally great with all animals except domesticated cats, and I'm pretty good with them. Just this morning I came across a loose dog that scared a mail lady into her truck, and I handled the sitcho. She kept frantically asking me ''want some dog mace?" Bitch.
