About Your (not) Illustrious Host

I can’t say for sure what you’re thinking, humans being the erratic bipedal nightmares that we are, but I’m going to take a guess. Somewhere along the line, someone’s going to read this blog o’mine and think, or say, or type to a friend, “Who the *expletive redacted* is this guy? Who does he think he is, starting a blog and expecting people to notice he exists?!” Now, just in case someone takes offense to that, let me tell you a few things about myself. This way you’ll get all the important insults right.

I am Cullen Edward McCurdy- one of several in the U.S., actually. Depending on your stance on Twilight, you may now emit some form of schadenfreude-fueled “poor bastard” comment or use this information to belittle me. I do have Asperger’s Syndrome, which I think affected me less than it did others’ perceptions of me. I was born July 3rd, 1992 at an undisclosed hour and location, by which I mean that I never asked what hospital.

In between dealing with temper issues and the pressures of working through college, I play PC games. That doesn’t mean I hate Macs or think the Xbox brought about the downfall of gaming, it just means that I sometimes spend more time fiddling with a game’s variables than I do actually playing it. When I’m not gaming or shirking my duties as a student, I’m writing. Or asleep. I do sleep, just not as much as I should. But back to the writing part.

I started writing at six years old, which is the only time I got an award for it. Then again, it’s the only time I was brave enough to enter my writing alongside that of others. I like to think I’m decent at it, if not in fact pretty good, but I doubt I’ll ever stand in front of a crowd and give a speech about it. No Nobel Prizes for me. Besides, I’d stammer so much and go on so many tangents they’d have to give me a separate event!

Other than that, I collect  swords and like to think I’m not half bad at using them, my favorite food is a toss-up between pan-fried lake perch and jaegerschnitzel, and I listen to basically every genre of music except Country. That’s it.

  1. Nice to meet you, Cullen. I saw you over at Dream Big’s Meet ‘n Greet and thought I would stop by. I like the way you write and your outlook on life. I deal with a mental illness as well (several actually with a few physical ones thrown in for good measure). I too have been writing since I was young though I haven’t as yet shared any of my fiction here in the blogosphere. I look forward to getting to know you better.

    1. Thanks Lydia, it’s good to meet you too. I can’t complain too much about Asperger’s, at least not since I’ve learned how to work with it. I’d love to read some of your work if you decide it’s time for it to see the binary light. Have a good one, and I hope to see you around in the future.

      1. Thanks for the encouragement. Actually, all my writing here, while non-fiction, shows my writing style. You might like one of my posts “Why I am Proud of My Mental Illness.” It is much like how you see your Asperger’s.


Say something, darn it!
