My name is Lawrence Salcido, otherwise referred to as DeMantic online. DeMantic was an old writing handle I used in high school whenever I tried to write something and was intended to be a mixture of the words demented and maniac. Most people often assume it’s more closely related to semantics. I am a 26 year old late blooming college student who is trying to find his way in the world. I wanted a journal, but I’m horrible at remembering to write and if I don’t feel I can make an impact I’m not very motivated to do it. This blog is my compromise for that. I don’t expect I can make much of an impact, but at least here the opportunity presents itself and that’s all I need to know.
