Self - Image - For the most part, Paul has a positive image of himself, and some think it is too positive and see him as having a really big Ego.

(Note: This list may be appendend as I come to think of more bad things about me.)
Alrighty Now. The following list are attributes. Next to them is a number that rates where I am on a scale from 1 to 20. With each
atribute I will give a brief explination.Attribute: (Definition/Description) - Score # - Making

not measure physical attractivness although attractivness certainly plays
a role.) If you need further description of this just ask.
Here is the section in which I attempt to give back ground information and describe my personality and what not.
Paul was born in Gettysburg, Pa, closing in on 21 years ago...His parents, James S. Gallo and Nancy L. Kanetski where both natvies of Scranton, Pa. and where only in Gettysburg because of Jim's job as a Pharmacist for a particular retail corporation. At the age of nearly 3, Paul and his family moved back to Scranton.
Shorty thereafter, Paul's Parents divorced, and Paul remained in custody of his Mother. Paul went to a very small grade school which only consisted of 42 students encompassing grades K through 6. In this school, it was part of curiculum to learn Polish, being it was a Polish Catholic Church School...(*note 1* Because Paul spent 7 years learning this language, even though he can no longer speak it fluently, he could pick it up rather quickly if he needed too. See next *Note* for further languages) Grade school is where Paul developed his sense compitition. Paul loved to play games on the school yard and liked it even more when he won, and would always try his hardest to win, but would not cheat. Those who did cheat really upset Paul. For example, Whenever they wanted to play a game like dodgeball, the "boys" wanted the teams to be "boys vs. girls". Now, Paul didn't see this as being very fair, Because the boys in the school were, in general, more atheletic than the girls, so, in order to make things more fair, Paul would play on the Girls team and often times, help them to win.
Paul ventured on through Middle and High School not very happy with either. Throughout the years, Paul developed skills in many different areas, becomming a Jack of All Trades type...Between Sports of all types to writing to eventually performing Paul developed skills to working in the school library and even participating in Mock Trial as a prosecuting Attorney....His grades in school where always decent at very least, he never studied or did homework but always managed to get A's and B's
During High School Paul took 3 years of Spanish. (*note* Once again...at this point in time Paul does not speak fluently, he does know enough to get around and if started studying again could get back to fluency level.)
Paul is currently finishing his third year in college studying Theatre hoping to one make an inpact on a large scale in the theatre community. In College is where Paul learned stage combat, and even though stage combat is supposed to be safe, Paul has used the knowledge of wound placement and how to strike safely to learn how to use some of this in a real combat situation...Just ask Spiffy ;)
Paul will be sucked into the RPG with Teri during her visit to KU
