in San Fran either, which is my destination of choice pending... whatever happens. I have never liked the east coast but for the moment I'm stuck here waiting on... hmm... mostly an older SSI case that I'm hoping goes through this time. It's on appeal for the...

I'm a visual thinker as well, but until university I did well in all subjects (though I was mostly homeschooled soo... I have in the end had to throw out most of what I learned anyways). I buried myself in books from an early age but lately been burned out... in fact that's how I tend to work, I obsess to death over something and then burn out. You prolly know the feeling, eh? At one point last year I was even reading and writing junk in a notebook about quantum physics. Haven't touched it since.
