The Apollonian edict 'everything in moderation' pretty much has been a consistent motif throughout my life. everything has had a counterbalance that keeps me on my toes. i live consistently in the moment and sometimes this is an attractive quality,...people tend to need a plan or feel that they need a plan in place to live...i kind of follow what seems to make the most directional sense. i have majored in quite a few disciplines, as an consequence. However English seemed to suit the thing that most motivates me: connection. I am a writer by nature, a student at heart and I work full-time for a non-profit.... as you can probably tell, i do alot of thinking: self-reflection...i also do alot of observation..... i'd rather be known than be judged. I generally rely on my empathy and intuition to guide me closer to people I care about. I often wear my heart on my sleeve and i'd like to find someone to help me get out of my head more and into the greater unknown of my reflections.
