I'm a guy in my early 30's. I'm from Sweden.

I like fast music like techno, hardstyle and pop.

I study at the university. I love math! My weakest subject in school was art.

I'm interested in many subjects. Geography, history, environmental issues, political issues, mathematics. Most nature sciences and social sciences are fine. I'm interested in artistic subjects too, but not very good at them!

I have PTSD since a traumatic event in 2003. I've mostly recovered but it's certainly changed the course of my life.

See you!

Wow it amazes me how someone who doesn't live here knows more about America then I can remember! lol children here grow up learning about America's history, but once we are older and get busy with life we tend to forget! But yes everything you said about Virginia is true!

well my "easter break" was last month so unfortunately I don't have much time to look through our family information to find out anything. I will def have to do it sometime though because I think its kind of cool to know about my family background.

Ah okay. Yeah no I don't have any family members that are deaf or hard of hearing, but in high school I took American Sign language as a language and fell in love with it. Plus we had deaf students in the class so it was fun watching the interpreter interpret and that's what sparked my interest. Plus I love learning about different cultures and things.

Do you know much about Virginia? Yeah Im not great with cities either! Lol too many to name!

Yeah Minnesota was a popular place back then. Im not sure which year my ancestors moved here... My grandparents made this book this photos and information about y relatives and ancestors, but I havent really had the chance to look at it. Guess cuz I was always too young to care until now.

And wow dude thats soo dreaming cool! Ive never seen any other form of sign language other than American. I am studying to become an interpreter so thats why I have that video up. Sign language is a HUGE part of my life!!! L
