I went to St. Aloysius Catholic School for sixth grade and half of seventh grade. It was rather unpleasant and uneventful, school-wise.
Non-school-wise, I had begun to question the validity of divine command theory and read Ayn Rand. I was already pretty much a libertarian, but critically examining the religion I had followed for 11 years got me nowhere. After a lot of puberty-related guilt, I decided that any deity who would punish lustful adolescents for what ve programmed them to do was not worthy of worship. I rejected the concept of God entirely, but after transferring from the unpleasant Catholic school to the nigh-paradisaical Greenwich Education Group, I decided to become a Reform Zoroastrian, thus beginning my spiritual journey of wandering. When I read the Gathas, it seemed to be just a series of hymns to a very powerful Guy Who made everything, rewarded good people, punished bad people until they became good enough to be rewarded, and wanted everything to go well. I still say the Ashem Vohu or the Ahuna Vairya sometimes, just as I sometimes say the Lord's Prayer or the Kaddish, though.
But I digress. School at G.E.G. was excellent: I got to take the best courses available, learned some Serbian and Latin, and got a yellow belt in Taekwondo. I also started engaging in chaos magic then, and my practice has only grown stronger over the years. Everyone at the school liked me; I liked everyone at the school; it was a very mutually supportive environment. I also got more into anime, watching things like The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
Over the summer, I enjoyed anime and studied more, but then learned something shocking: G.E.G. had raised their tuition and we couldn't afford it anymore. So I met with the eccentric headmaster of the Thornton-Donovan School in New Rochelle, NY, where 2008 Libertarian Vice-Presidential Candidate Wayne Allyn Root had studied. He informally evaluated my intellect and talents and accepted me for free. For the most part, I liked it there; the fall of 2012 was when I visited New York three times, first heard of 'Gangnam Style', and saw Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which is my favourite anime of all time. However, my health began to take a downward turn, and transportation became so much of a hassle that I was homeschooled the rest of the school year.
