"... trying to figure out who I am, and explore what made me this way-discovering how much agency I have in directing my future..."

I am a writer, as well as many other things. At this moment, as in all moments, I'm trying to figure out who I am, and explore what made me this way–discovering how much agency I have in directing my future, in making myself. My serial novel, Diary of a Maniac;Or, The Paradox of Being Thoughtful and American, is more-or-less an autobiograpical struggle, between a hypersensitive, compassional eye, and the overlaid filters of culturally-ingrained egomaniacal delusion.
