Well, it appears to be my one-year anniversary on this site. Most of you probably have no clue as to who I am so I'll take this opportunity to open up.

My history:
Ever since I was a little kid going through elementary school, debate always intrigued me. It is just something about the adversarial nature of debate that has a draw on me as I'm sure a lot of you feel. The first debates that I have watched were the presidential debates of 2008 between Barrack Obama and John MacCain and the 2012 debate between Obama and Mitt Romney. I loved watching them, even though I have no clue as to what these politicians are saying. A couple years after that, I've became deeply invested in the creation/evolution debate reading all I could after watching the Ken Ham/Bill Nye debate. After feeling confident in taking a stance on the issue, I joined this site to argue for creation and Christian apologetics in general. and now here I am with 29 debates under my belt.

Debates I'm most proud of (Not much, but I aspire to do much better this year):
http://www.debate.org...

My goals for the next couple of years:
1. Become a part of the DDO community by participating in the forums more and getting to know its members better
2. Diversify my debate subjects into more economical and political matters
3. Overall, improve on my debating skills as I aspire to be like tejretics, bsh, Hayd, and other elite debates on this site.

Not exactly a rousing or inspiration speech of my intellectual journey on DDO but I just want to say thanks to the DDO community.

Feel free to ask me any questions

Whats the story behind your username? It seems awfully depressing to refer to yourself as nothing special by literally naming yourself nothingspecial

Well, I was that quiet kid who would sit by and watch arguments unfold with subjects ranging from science, religion, politics and despite having strong opinions of my own on the subject, I would say nothing. I'm not the outgoing type of guy to jump into a verbal debate or discussion. I just blend with the crowd
