Well, if anyone read my age arguments, you'll know why I was so, uh... determined to win. [Big Grin]

My real name is Anne. I’m twelve years old. My oldest brother, know that I think about it, it twice my age. So we have many arguments and disscusions. I have 3 brothers and one sister (all older [Frown] )

I play 2nd trumpet in my schools band. We have a competition this Saturday. I'm a soprano in my schools chorus. We won our district competition; we’re going to state! I'm in the school’s accelerated program. I was on the cross-country, basketball, and volleyball teams. [Big Grin] I would have been on track but I broke my leg. [Frown]

As you can see, I'm pretty involved in my schools activities. [Smile]

I'm not sure what to right about anymore. I like reading and writing and physical activities. I like acting. I have a dog. Her name is Riley but I call her Issues. [Big Grin]

I can't think of anything else right now but let me know if you want to know something!

Jeesh, it's wonderful to read your introduction post. I'm happy you found your way to Hatrack.

And may I say that you are extremely well-spoken for 12? Good night, your environment must have been filled with a lot of interesting discussions and people. That's so cool. [Smile]

Welcome Anne! I didn't know you were so young. Everyone who's younger seems so articulate. All I remember from being 12 is doing Geography in school. Wow. That was a long time ago.

But, anyway, welcome! I hope you like it here as much as I do!

All I can remember from age 12 was not communicating with anyone. At all. It's not that I wasn't well-spoken ... I just didn't speak. For you to have the kind of communication you have, at age 12, really ... makes me feel like a bum. [Razz] . Reticulum also. You guys are ... well, Hatrack is definately the place for you. Welcome and I will immensly enjoy continuing to read your posts.

And by the way, the fact that you're young makes me respect your opinion more, not less. [Smile]

It's nice to see my realm of influence spread.

*evily taps fingers together*

Thank you Jeesh. You really ARE an amazingly well spoken 12 year old. Are you interested in Politics at all? I'd have to say Politics are my Forte, as is Music. [Wink]

Well, I was into politics when it was Bush and Kerry running. I stopped when I realized how dumb Bush is...

I would have guessed 14, a freshman. But that is likely because that's how old I was when I got my first computer with internet access at home.

You're about how old I was when I started getting involved with computer bulletin boards (before the Internet became the community-for-all-seasons that it is today.)

Welcome to a well-spoken person, no matter your age. [Smile]

So welcome Anne! [Party]

Well, Bush is not so much as dumb, as much as he completely lacks any ability for verbal communication. If you become the President, you must have to had done SOMETHING right.

I might, I'm not sure. [Wink] I had a few accounts before I finally knew what to do. [ROFL]

Ret, does being born count?

Well, I wouldn't really insult and judge politicians untill you actually get to know what they are for, and who and what they support. Because of my family, I thought I was a full-fledged Democrat, only to discover that I believe quite a few of the things that the Republican party does.

I was reading on a site about what Democrats and Republicans are for and against. I was kind of half and half. I agree with both parties on certian points. I think I'll reread it.
