Since there aren't enough people publicly speaking about mental health I also started a video series (independent of my variety show). I want people to realize that you can still get a degree in chemistry & biology despite having ADHD, OCD, anxiety disorder, & depression (last very well controlled). Although this doesn't negate my mental issues and struggle, I'm proud to have accomplished this. I'm determined to challenge mental health stigma.
I am foreign to small talk which is a contributing factor to why my profile is so long. I allow anyone to learn a substantial amount about myself without either of us having to invest into a conversation (I'm not a natural conversationalist, but clearly I can say a lot, so if you like encyclopedias...). You can get me talking though if you bring up any of my main interests which include:
• Geography & Maps.
• Architecture (pre-1900, I draw/design some too).
• Historic Population Data (article list).
• Mental Health (video series).
• Nature (video series).
• Social Media.
Although I regularly come across as dry, rational, and analytic, at times when I'm comfortable around a person I can be extremely silly. Would you believe that a test says that I'm an INTJ?
• As Described by Other People:
I asked some of the people who know me to quickly come up with a brief description about me. Here's what they said:
• "I would describe you as being very intelligent and having an awareness that creates friction with the general world."
• "Billy is one of the most intelligent individuals I've ever met. He also has a kind heart and cares about those who get close to him."
• "I would say focused, meticulous, passionate about specific projects, a fan of architecture, art, the outdoors etc."
• "Smart, creative, interesting."
• Gender, Sex, Sexuality, and Romantic Attraction:
I suppose that in the societal sense I am along the lines of “gender nonconforming”. I say this due to me being a neuroatypical individual who's unable to conform to society's expectations of what a man should be although I'd imagine that my visual gender expression is along the lines of what society would expect from a male. Due to this, the kind of relationship I envision working would be one that doesn't rely on traditional power constructs.
I find myself most sexually attracted to biologically and phenotypically female people regardless of their gender expression meaning that I'm also attracted to gender nonconforming people. I consider my sex drive to be relatively high and my attraction to be highly dependent on physical attributes but that doesn't necessarily imply that my attraction corresponds with society's ideals of what ought to be considered attractive. For one, I tend to find myself more attracted to those who're above what is considered the “perfect weight”. I also do not mean to imply that I don't value intelligence, I do, along with many other things that I'd desire in an atypical relationship. I'm just not sexually attracted to them.
In terms of more personal relationships I've never experienced anything other than the relationships I have with my cat or my parents. I am an empathetic and caring person although I may not always express it in a traditionally expected way. I sometimes question if I am aromantic but it is likely that I just need to find the right person. Although I am very introverted and I enjoy immersing myself in my own projects, I don't want my entire life to be completely alone which leads me to being on this site.
