After looking at all the rest of this (and the aforementioned civil
internet arguments; yes, they exist), I'm apparently good at walls
of text. This apparently can extend to text conversations, though
whether it does so or not depends on who I'm talking to and the
Also seem to be a bit of a creative sort; have written halfway
short stories (emphasis on short), and have tried my hand at
directing, which also went reasonably well, although I haven't
really followed up on this. Have been debating whether to pick said
poetry back up.
Very good at seeing multiple sides of an issue - I actually have a

tangents and run) during conversations, which can lead to

fractions, while relaxing, doesn't generally result in anything of
artistic merit unless you have something in mind beforehand.
Explaining things - granted, I have to know what I'm supposed to be

all the rules down for integrals, but most of the rest I've got a
