  1. Hello, forum. I'm Thomas, but I prefer to be addressed by my username. I'm fifteen years old, have crew-cut brown hair (it's naturally curly, though I wish it were straight so I could grow it out), I'm six feet tall, I have brown eyes, I weigh 140 lbs, and I'm very, very skinny. I'm in the second semester of my freshman year, and my current classes are ROTC, choir, social studies, and biology. I attend a high school located in my town. I have a total of four friends and one acquaintance who may want to become my friend in the future who also attend my high school. All of the adults I talk to agree that I have a vast vocabulary, and that I'm an extremely smart kid. Several people have said that I'm "brilliant." I'm not here to brag, though; compliments actually make me feel worse about myself. I don't know why. I've been struggling with depression since the age of thirteen, though so many things have happened to me during that time, it has felt like an eternity. There is some symbolism behind my username: I use the album "The Downward Spiral" by Nine Inch Nails as an allegory for my depression, hence the name "Mr. Self Destruct". For those who haven't listened to the CD, it's the title of the first track on the album. If you haven't listened to the record, you should. It's my favorite. Nine Inch Nails is also my favorite band. The problem with my writing is that I'm just awful with conclusions, so... yeah. I hope I can get to know you all.

    hey, like you my name on here is symbolism, it stands for my skull. im here but i had broke my skull in half and had still managed an extra 200 and sum odd concussions, fractures and other damage that blew outward kinda like a hand grenade going off. and i too like nine inch nails, my favorite song by them is hurt or head like a hole. if you ever need some ears to hear you out just let me know. ik how it is when your the only person to talk to and your sick of your own voice.

    The Downward Spiral is a masterpiece. It's pretty dark though and you kind of have to be in the right frame of mind… but the production alone is incredible.
  8. ^ Agreed. It's one of the few albums I can listen to, beginning to end, without skipping tracks.
