I attended a vocational agricultural high school and studied vet science. went to college, determined I hated that field, and so became a sociology/anthropology and environmental studies major instead. Not that I do anything with said degree. I now own a used book store in CT. It's book recycling, that's it! I also play roleplaying games (World of Darkness and Dark Ages) and the Rage CCG. I also paint, (badly), sculpt (fairly well), and write occasionally. I watch far more Japanese anime and schlocky horror movies than is good for anyone's mental health.
