I spent years doing what one might call ``partial homeschooling'' with my dad in math and science, and then started taking physics classes at the university about two years ago. I've been through a lot of very fascinating classes, including mechanics, some E&M, thermodynamics, biophysics, quantum mechanics, solid-state and atomic physics. I'm also in this graduate-level quantum mechanics course this semester, which has been challenging and labor-intensive and very fun.
On a more personal level---I'm 15, tall enough, and come from a small town where they grow a lot of wheat. Last time I checked, my social life was still breathing. I listen to bands too numerous to name, and I'm in a string quartet that occasionally earns a little cash. Recently I tried to teach myself Tuvan throat-singing. I pass quite a bit of time entertaining my three younger siblings and cooking large quantities of food. During the summers I putter around pretending to fix up our old Queen Anne house. Most of the time I can be found wearing a hat.
I look forward to meeting you all in a few weeks!
