My interest in googology started when I was in 5th grade. I was browsing Wikipedia when I came across descriptions of TREE(3) and Rayo's Number. I found this wiki, but quickly lost interest in combinatorical functions. I started learning about recursion and ordinals, and soon I have become very good at it.
As a 7th grader currently, I have developed a strong understanding to recursion and OCFs. I am very good at analysing stuff, but not so good at inventing stuff.
None of the projects will be complete any time soon. Perhaps wait 5 years?
