My name is Alouette. I live in a small house off the corner of Bell, not that that’ll help you stalk me. I was born in the wilderness that is rural Connecticut, but moved early on in my life to the noise, garbage, and skyscrapers that are the city. A self-professed nerd and romantic, I aspire to do no less than discover Truth. If I find the grand answer, I’ll let you know. But until then, I’ll just try to blog about the little snippets of Truth in my life. And if not Truth, than about Love and Hope and Fate and Faith. Because each of these things contributes to Truth, and for me, Truth is the most important thing there is.
I am a reader, writer, blogger, editor, and a student. I compete in the First Robotics Competition, am an amateur flutist, and have no vocal talent. I also compete in the US Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl and edit a local science fiction and fantasy magazine. I am halfway decent in English, Korean, and Latin, but downright awful at Slovak, Spanish, and Chinese. I tend to be self-deprecating at times, but that’s only because life is conducive to self-deprecation.
I am a high school student slogging through honors courses and a college composition course each semester. I like to pretend it’s an easy feat, but it’s really not. However, what I do get out of it is one of the best secondary school educations in the world. I don’t know if it’s worth the three or more hours I spend each day commuting to and from school, but it’s the only choice I have.
