I am a scientist, passionate about it. (occasionally maybe more of a proto-scientist) A few of my ribs are artists though, and I crave it like thirst. I love finding ways to mix art and science. I have a pretty strong, natural wanderlust; not to be confused with restlessness--I'd chalk exploring a foreign country, climbing a mountain and peering into a microscope as having roots in the same instinct. I guess I've traveled a lot. I love studying languages; I'm not going to lie and say that I am fluent in a lot of them, but I am comfortable with a few and have studied like 7 or 8 of them. I love riding my bike and rode across Japan in 2009.
I'm from a big, outgoing, warm and gregarious family, but I can be calm and contemplative. I am comfortable in big, wild crowds, but I am content alone in an introverted frame.
Digesting things, understanding how they work, finding nuance is something I love, but it's important, critical to me to be able to seamlessly blend that all with goofiness and absurdity.
I occasionally write "your" where I intend "you're"; this does not mean I do not know the difference! Typos are unfortunate, but, what information do they really reveal? Hopefully you make a distinction between typos and outright ignorance of grammar.
So, what do you think of the quote "The greatest obstacle to discovery is the illusion of knowledge" ?
My heart feels like a desert.
