I was never a man with much energy. As a child, when most children played with their friends, running around chasing each other, I mostly sat back and watched them. I read a little bit too much, and enjoyed experiencing a story, in any format, from books to games. When I’m on middle school, where most of my friends got hit by rampaging hormones and start exchanging bodily fluids, I fell in love with math and philosophy. I even knew some ladies who crushed on me, and knowing that, still ignored them. This was later confirmed, and I still regret it until now. But hey, at least I was a true nerd back then.
