Hello all,


My name is Peter Anderson and Bemidji State University is the 6th college I've attended since graduating high school. In my first full year at Bemidji, I would say, for first time in my life, I experienced true learning. After a tumultuous year, where within 12 months I had attended 3 different Universities and lived at 3 separate residences, I was diagnosed with non-hyperactive ADHD. For any of you doubters, ADHD is a real mental illness that affects people's ability to learn and function inside of what's common by normal human standards. It affects one's ability TO LEARN! Tell me about a time in your life when you stopped learning, and I'll tell you what you learned from that experience. Going through life with undiagnosed ADHD is like walking through a maze blindfolded. You still have full use of all other senses in navigating and working your way through life, but you have no idea where you are or what you're about to walk into. You'd trade use of all other senses, if you could but see where you are and where you are going.

Currently, My major is English Education with a 5-12 secondary licensure. I am very seriously considering a Computer Science minor and quite possibly a complete switch to Computer Science. Technology and its many uses, including where it could be used more, has captured my ability to reason around it and thus my motivation to learn more.

When I'm not studying (which is never), I like to explore the great outdoors, make and re-make music (drums and guitar), read well-written books (I don't have a particular genre), and I love to write. I'm currently in the process of making my own writings more visible which makes the timing of this class terrific! I'm part of a weekly podcast called GenreSavvy and I also have a YouTube channel under the name ChristopherRobins. But he's probably a more maniacal Christopher Robins than the one you're used to. I look forward very much to this class and what this year will hold. We are the "John Stewart generation." Snarky banter and satirical rhetoric are always welcome on my page.

Toodles,

Peter
