Hello world! My name is Connor. I'm a student at Okemos High School in Okemos, Michigan. This here is my profile that you're looking at right now. If you are indeed reading this very sentence, then you deserve to know the basic basics of me.

First, I don't believe in personal profile biographies. That stuff is just silly to me.

Second, I'm a hypocrite.

I see myself as sort of a round peg in a square hole sort of fellow. I wish I could say I fit in perfectly with any group or persona. I don’t. I like space and science as well as games. Space Engineers and Kerbal Space Program are games that I love and enjoy.

People around me would describe me as funny, but it’s only because I always speak in the same tone of voice whether I’m being witty or making myself look like an idiot.

Anyhow, this is the end of this text. The person who wrote it hopes you think they’re at least a little bit interesting.
