I am a fixer

“I am going to be a sophomore in high school. Last year was my first year in the South. My mom is from Mobile and we visited every year. I have a complex family tree and am an only child with different groups of stepbrothers and stepsisters. I have lived in 13 houses so far. I try to guess where am I going to be next year and I am always wrong, but I love change. A year ago I had no idea I would be here. I am glad we moved, but it is a bit snobby at school and I haven’t found my place yet. I am a bit of a loner anyway. My dad was very strict and my mom was a free range kid. I am in the middle. I like visiting my grandmother here but I talk fast and she talks slow and sometimes we have a hard time understanding each other

I am a fixer. I like to fix people and keep them from doing dumb stuff to themselves and get their head on straight. A big thing where I was before was kids cutting themselves and I have gotten people to quit that. Emotions and anxiety build up and they have to let it out somehow. I tried to show them better ways.

I am a computer nerd and love cars.I build computers from scratch and parts. Computers click together and I was 12 when I put my first computer together. I sold them and made a small profit. I am shopping for my first car. I saved up money selling computers, mowing lawns and odd stuff.

I am 15, I don’t know my purpose yet. I could be an auto mechanic or a CEO. There was a kid in my class who could balance a chair on his chin. He got all of the attention and stole the show. That made it easy for me to not be seen.”
