Hi, I'm Kyle
I am a conglomerate of many different things. I represent no specific group of people, instead I have chosen to merge them. I navigate through an untraditional world with many traditional values. I was born in a city but raised in a small town. I read Nietzsche, Jung, and Plato while listening to Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, and Rick Ross. I am a former student-athlete who chooses to play chess in his free time. I lived in a 80% white state, while graduating from the most ethnically diverse National University. I keep up with technology blogs in between my workout days. I pay my tithe and use the rest of the money to buy Jordans. I speak the current slang and write in Modern English. I buy clothes from the preppy and get haircuts in the ghetto. I talk with the nerds, play with the jocks, and make jokes with the class clown.
I want to learn everything, live forever, and help solve all the world's problems—the worst part is that I believe I can do it.
