Hello my name is Andrew Bismack.  I'm a 18 year old male who lives with his wonderful family and dog in Rochester Hills.  I work four days a week and attend school at Oakland University.  My hobbies include tennis, snowboarding, larping, video games, and being a stereotypical closet nerd.  I'm doing this experiment because I am honestly curious what being a mute person would be like.  Perhaps through understanding their daily struggles I can help be a voice for their issues.  My experiment is going to be that I will not speak and instead use a notebook for my thoughts, just as a mute person would.  I will enact this experiment anytime I am on Oakland Universities campus for that specific week.  I will also choose one day (probably one where I don't work so I don't get fired) where for the entire day I will be a mute person.  In truth I think at school it won't be that difficult because I could simply not talk, but I think during the one full day I might go crazy without being able to talk.
