I want to experience everything, as much as possible in this short life we have. I want to be the most well-rounded person I can be: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I was already pretty brainy, good at math and science, etc. but that was it, so I started developing all the other parts of myself that were lacking.
I started working out every day; I look good, feel great, and have developed a habit that I'll keep the rest of my life.
I've read A LOT of philosophy/science/religion stuff lately, and have really discovered who I am rather than just staying within the prison walls of my family's beliefs. Everyone needs to find their own answers the big questions of life, and I think I've done that.
I started going out and DOING things with people. Making friends, learning to dance...It's been the most stressful part for this mostly introverted guy, but also the most exciting!
When I was seven years old, I received this book about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing for Christmas. Neil became my idol, hero, and role model, and that is where my interest in space, science, math, and engineering first began. Sixteen years later, I'm an engineering student who just finished an internship at NASA with another one coming this summer. Living the dream :)
Speaking of books, I love them because this is exactly how they work. And movies as well. Even though the stories are made up, they're made up by people, and so we can learn a lot from them about people, ourselves, and the world. And my passion is not limited to fiction. Books are knowledge storehouses. I mean, if almost all of humanity were destroyed but the remaining few had access to a library, they'd have the ability to rebuild civilization in the blink of an eye compared with how long it took the first time around.
I also love (in no particular order) the Middle Ages, museums, mountains, astronomy, exercise, and Aggie Football.
Oh yeah, reddit. I'm totally addicted to reddit.
