Profile Information

Hello, I'm Pensive, but for all personal intents and purposes you can call me C.J. As a High School Sophomore it's certainly a slight bit eccentric to prefer stream-of-consciousness writing to other more teenager-esque activities, but I've found a distinct joy in the emotional release and satisfaction found in creating poetry and prose. Hopefully you'll find the work I've uploaded to this site as meaningful as I have.

As for the other less writing-oriented aspects of my personality, I'm a huge music nerd. I literally listen to everything, and have a broad taste in music that ranges from Bela Bartok to The Beatles to Run DMC to AC/DC and all points in between (And beyond for that matter). I go through musical phases, however, and currently I'm indulging in the luscious rhythms and melodies of post-rock bands such as Explosions In The Sky and Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Good writing music, that stuff is. Oh, I also adore Kaizers Orchestra. Those crazy gasmask-loving Norwegians. And Muse. And everything else pretty much.  Psychology's interesting too, especially Jung's work (Though Freud's stuff is intriguing as well). I play the trumpet, electric bass (I've dabbled in upright bass though), guitar, and I've dabbled with  the piano, Hammond Organ, percussion, banjo, mandolin, and ukelele. The next instrument on my mental to-play list is the Bouzouki. Oh, I also sing bass in my school's A Cappella and Chamber Choirs. So yes, I'm a complete and utter music freak.
