Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Alan McCormick


After high school, I went to Wisconsin School of Electronics to get an ET associate degree but I failed one class in the first trimester. Took a few months off and killed time working at Marquip as a janitor and later a technician. Went back to school and graduated in 1990. Left Marquip after a friend told me about how nice it was working at Softmart (a local tech support company who had a big contract with Microsoft for Win95 support). While the people there were great, the stress caused my ulcerative colitis to flare up. I left when my UC prevented me from doing my job to my satisfaction.

For a while I tried treating my UC by just doing what the docs told me. After that failed to work, I switched docs and tried some newer meds. A slight improvement but they were threatening to remove my colon (which still might not have cured me). Eventually I found some alternative medicine treatments that have allowed me to return to a more or less normal life. More less than more but that's splitting hairs.

Currently I'm self employed repairing and selling electronics (mainly vintage stereo equipment) on ebay and at flea markets.

I enjoy writing humorous stories and other observations on life. For a taste of my writing, check out my myspace blog. I wonder what my creative writing teacher (Mr Ihle) would think if he knew I write numerous blog entries and the family newsletter just for fun. Strange how the same things that were forced on me in school (and I dreaded like the plague) are now a source of fun and relaxation.

Favorite memories of East High:

Decision Making class: I barely passed (due to the two big papers) but it was the one class that really held my attention. I was almost as much of a political junkie then as I am now.

Any class with Mr Shands: Sometimes he would drop little personal observations about life into his lectures. The most memorable one was him noting he couldn't remember the sound of his father's voice. He got me hooked on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion so I owe him big for shaping my sense of humor.

Forensics: Yeah, waking up on a Saturday morning to dress up and babble a speech to complete strangers seemed utterly insane at the time but it was fun to hang out with other Forensicators in Beuhl's office and see if I could solve the "Scrounge of the Lounge" trivia question on the handout for the meet. Bonus points if Doug gave you a bizarre nickname like Bubbles or Marsupial.
