Why is Brendon the way he is?
Growing up in a Mormon home hasn't been easy. It was all Jesus, all the time. If some priest hadn't okayed it, it was assumed to be forbidden. It left me with a very empty life, pretty much anti-social as well. So you can probably bet the minute I turned 18 I was out the door for some fun.
And you'd be right. I was. For years I never even came close to a social life. But now I had one, and when I was offered booze and drugs, having never tried them, and being forbidden to me as they were, I tried them in a heartbeat. When I realized it made people like me more, I just kept taking more and more. I'm such an attention whore after all.
