About Daniel Tierney 9 Articles
This sentence describes Dan well. Not this sentence, but the previous. A student who often forgets assignments might compose such a statement hastily at the beginning of class. Because you can assume that, the sentence accurately describes a poor student. Thus, they have completed an assignment asking them to write a short biography. Because they completed the assignment, doesn't that mean that they are actually a good student, and the biography is wrong? The ability to overthink absolutely anything is an important characteristic of Dan. Dan also enjoys science, reading, writing, philosophizing, and creating new things.
