Try to achieve even ten seconds of inner silence.
You will encounter a resisting organism that forces you to talk.
That organism is the word."
— William S. Burroughs
I'm a 25-year-old cynical individual, who was diagnosed with intense manic-depression years ago and is currently undergoing treatment. It's one of the only problems I have that can't be resolved by simply not giving a fuck.
Politically, my views are closer to socialism than anything else. I do not support the two major U.S. political parties; through keen observation I've concluded that they are both entirely incapable of handling their jobs. At the end of 2011, congress holds an 11% approval rating. Our system has become a joke.
Religiously, I'm not religious at all. I'm a Jewish atheist.
Anyway, I spend a lot of time writing, thinking, reading, and talking to myself. Aside from being obsessed with pop culture and history, there's not much more to me. Oh, and I was born in Moscow during the Soviet Union era. I still speak Russian and all, but I've been living in the States since 1992 so that whole thing was forever ago.
