Hello. My name is Daniel C. Phelan. Feel free to call me Danny. I happen to go to a public high school at which whatever is actually learned tends to be unimportant, as the useful stuff is taught in a manner which inclines to slip out of the brain and through the ear. This is one medium of my attempt to unschool myself - in other words, to learn real skills I shall actually use and employ them to my own purposes. At some point I intend to travel the world, but at the moment I'm stuck in the United States. I love to read and write, and I sometimes draw and play piano - although those two are in desperate need of improvement. Acting is also fun, but I haven't always the time for being on stage, so that's become an occasional treat for me.My favorite book is currently Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, and I don't know what my favorite movie or piece of music are. So many from which to choose! My favorite show is the newer Doctor Who series. I haven't seen the older ones, but would like to do so. You can tell I like fantasy, science fiction, and horror. It might do well to add that I love cats.
