Preamble: I like to be amused, surprised, enlightened, touched. I want to learn EVERYTHING, until my brain gains so much mass from the knowledge that it collapses into a black hole, making possible for humanity to travel to other galaxies. But now I'm just being silly. Maybe though, this can give you a better intro to me than a list of my likes and dislikes.
Hello, my name is Adam and I'm a life long (19 years now) type-1 Diabetic. Which means a virus shut down my pancreas when I was 5. I love to play MMO's, and have been beta-testing them since the second phase of EverQuest. I have a particular interest in picking things apart, and asking the question "why?". I am a very honest and caring individual, and an aspiring intellectual.
Everything I aspire to do I do so rationally and optimistically. I like to take the small parts and see how they fit into the larger parts, and how those larger parts will work better. I am a man of efficiency.
Although "Blase" is an appropriate word to describe me, I'm trying to reinvent its meaning to more a positive connotation. Sometimes I have trouble prioritizing what's important to me because I indulge in all my curiosities. Life is too short to be worrying over negative influences, I would much rather surround myself with beautiful things. Which I have found can be anything and everything.
Let's see... I've raised, rescued, and loved a decent share of animals in my life. I've raised two panther chameleons, a ferret, seven cats and three were rescues, a sugar glider, and finally my three dogs. I try to volunteer my time whenever possible, but for now I spend my home-life looking after a singular cat who is the recipient of all my love.
I am a nerd, and very proud of it.
Once more for posterity, I am a nerd, and VERY proud of it.
What this mean to me is that I have a deep appreciation for my environment and the people I co-habitate with. As an objectivist I strengthen myself to ultimately strengthen those around me. I can be horrendously selfless at times, and meticulously selfish at others. Life is not black and white, it's shades of gray and this means each individual situation maintains it's own context. Which is important because context is what defines our actions.
I am a southpaw, an objectivist, and a TEDster
