    Greetings all.

    I'm not exactly new here, but I've never posted an introduction thread before.

    I was reading the front page, and suddenly, I felt the warmth of gratitude towards GBAtemp swell in my heart. It inspired me to introduce myself and thank everyone at GBAtemp for their hard work and high convenience factor. Hacking news and general gaming news all on one front page? Hot diggity!

    I'm 21 years old, and I'm a struggling writer and computer scientist. I left college because of the debt it was burdening my parents with. Now I'm trying to find a way to leverage my systems administration and writing knowledge to make a living.

    If only less people took the monetary system for granted, perhaps we wouldn't all be in this mess. (Check out The Venus Project! It's really amazing.)

    I've had a lot of good memories here, and I hope to keep them coming. {co'o rodo}

    Financial aid? It sucks, but in today's world, to get a job above minimum wage, you almost need to go thousands of dollars into debt. That'll change as we get to be a poorer nation, and fewer people can go to college, and our generation will be able to have all the jobs -bwahaha-

    Anyway, welcome.

    Financial aid is pennies.

    I'm a young, white, homeschooled male with no chance for a scholarship due to lack of participation in public school. (I left public school so I could learn more about the universe after 5th grade.) The best financial aid I can hope for is ~$500, which does nothing against the $8,000 a year loans for me and 10k "parent plus" loans.

    Just gotta love Sallie Mae marketers, don't you?

    ...I wonder if anyone on GBAtemp can help me. Probably not, but here's hoping aloud.

    Funny thing about that comic; it's 75% incorrect.

    You see, the kinds of people who learn Lojban tend to be highly intelligent, and produce some of the most interesting conversation on language and human psychology.

    Check out their IRC channel at #lojban. You'll see what I mean.
