I'm introspective and inquisitive. I like to have discussions about issues I'm interested in and ask deep questions. I don't aim to change anyone's opinion, but I do enjoy learning about other different viewpoints and having mine heard. I consider myself open-minded.
I'm honest, almost to a fault. It's very difficult for me to lie, especially on the spot, and planning a story to tell a lie, even if by omission, makes me feel guilty to consider, rendering me ineffective as a liar. I will try to be considerate as I possibly can without compromising the truth.
I don't drink alcohol or take recreational drugs. I don't see the point of pointing your mind and body at risk merely for the thrill.
I have three dogs whom I love.
I like science as a casual observer, but by no means am I an expert or a die-hard enthusiast. I'm particularly fond of psychology and astronomy.
Rereading my self-summary makes me think of Flannery O'Connor's quote, "I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say." I write this in the process of still working myself out, so a lot of this is subject to change, but this is how I best describe myself. It's a lifelong journey.
