I'm a Chicago-based teen that spends too much time on the Internet. I like playing clarinet and am a Journalism and Chemistry double-major, with hopes to work in policy writing or politics. I have synesthesia and enjoy alternative music and comics. My favorite musicians include Grimes, Vampire Weekend, David Bowie, Frank Ocean, Florence and the Machine, Alt-J, and Glass Animals. I want Free Trader Beowulf to be a thing, and my favorite poet is probably Alfred, Lord Tennyson, despite how cringingly depressing he is.

If given the choice, I would pick Wanda Maximoff as my patronus, because I've sold my soul to Marvel and have little to no dignity left.

Yes, my name is Cam, though I figured that was a given because I'm clearly the most clever person on the face of the planet. My pronouns are whatever you want them to be.

I've been a longtime reader of Wikipedia, due to my status as a student, and have been editing for a little bit now; I greatly enjoy it. My main interests on the site (in regards to editing) are reverting vandalism, copyediting, and replacing dead links (not to mention welcoming newbies). I may only be a student, but I have a passion for knowledge (mainly because I'm a Ravenclaw). I use Twinkle, Huggle, and RTRC, and have been chastised for being the deletionist that I might be (n.b. I'm an exclusive deletionist, i.e. I am exclusive with what I delete), so please let me know if I've screwed up -- you can even trout me if you'd like.

Circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but. To take a trivial example, which of us ever laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who find fault chooses to enjoy a pleasure one avoids a pain produces no blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil.
