I am Hank. I am an artist of a few different forms, including trumpet (mainly classical music, but also some jazz), photography, creative writing, and occasionally acting, though I have not done much of that. This year (my sophomore year in high school), I have grown fond of and gotten interested in math (I'm currently in pre-calculus) and physics. However, I would not go so far as to say I am really very good at either of them. I also enjoy learning about religions and philosophy, though my Catholic education has turned me off of the being religious track. I would consider myself either an atheist or a deist, though usually more so the former (though apatheism is interesting too).
I'm from (just outside of) DC
Languages: English, a tiny amount of Spanish and Latin
Books I'm currently reading:
Flowers for Algernon
A Song of Ice and Fire (I'm on the 3rd book)
More I can't remember at this point
Music/bands/artists I enjoy:
Rush, Counting Crows, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Alex Day, Alt-Jay, C2C, Beirut, The Decemberists, Chameleon Circuit, Greek Fire, Jack Johnson, John Williams, The Killers, Of Monsters and Men, OneRepublic, Queen, The Piano Guys, Twenty One Pilots, Vampire Weekend, Vance Joy, and a helluva lot more. Not to mention a bunch of classical stuff.
This is probably far more than anyone really needs to know, but I was bored, so I decided to spend some time flushing out my 'About Me' page.
Thanks for dropping by

It wasn't that bad, actually. Besides the fact that I was annoyed at Holden the entire book because he's a complete idiot.
I finished Flowers for Algernon today, and it is so sad but so good. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I just started Dune and something called The Name of the Wind, so hopefully those will be good. I'm also hoping to get The Great Gatsby done soon, so that I've got it read before we start it in English this year.
