About Jack Pickering

Jack Pickering was born in the UK in 1994, and has never stopped worrying. Paranoia forms a part of his daily life, and is integral in his motivation. Since an intellectual awakening at the age of 15, he hasn’t stopped thinking which isn’t really a good substitute for worrying. He is currently considering a Geography degree at one of several Universities, hopefully the University of Birmingham. His interests lie in politics, literature, and current affairs. He is also a great believer in the way that history is cyclical, and that nothing we do really matters.
