Portnoy15's Profile

About me:My name is Mark. I'm a bit of a floater...I don't really find issue with any one group of people. Several people have told me that I think too much. Several people have told me that I do not think enough. I have a selective memory. Since May of 2005, it has become even more discerning in terms of what it allows me to remember. Despite my ambiguious religious beliefs, I have spiritual qualities. Despite any errors in grammar and spelling you may find on this page, I would like to be an English teacher when I grow up. I enjoy dj'ing. I play saxophone. I participate in dramatic performances at my school. I enjoy watching the Discovery Channel while listening to acid jazz in hotel rooms in Ocean City. I am the literature fan in the Howard High It's Academic team. The coolest place I have ever been to is Boulder, CO. I am an usher at Merriweather Post Pavillion. I enjoy obscure independant and foreign films. Despite many of the items on this list, I try not to come off as pretentious. A very cool person once described me as a "Cultural Buddha." Who am I to argue?
