Pennsylvania, United States
My name is Jonathan. I have been playing chess since I was five years old (going on eleven years ago, wow). Besides studying chess, I like to read, program computers, and play old video games. Musically, I like the groups Foo Fighters, R.E.M., and U2 most. In high school, I am lining up to be valedictorian, and hope to study computer science and computational biology in college.
My goal in chess right now is to reach 2000 USCF by this summer (I am currently 1955). Since I have experienced several strong results against masters and experts recently, I believe that this is quite plausible.GOAL ACHIEVED!
Now I hope to reach USCF master level by the time I enroll in college (August 2015).
And one personal goal: I hope to soon disprove the myth that good chessplayers can't get girlfriends. I intend to get a (specific) date to Homecoming next year, and see where that takes me :)
