Empiricism, epistemology, morality, and any sort of intellectual endeavors are very important to me. I am forever a skeptic and secularist; therefore, I can safely call myself an anti-theist. I do not dislike religious people--I have many friends of many different religious backgrounds--but am against religion as a fundamental concept and contend the world would be a much safer, more moral place in its absence.
I understand that last paragraph will turn the majority of people away, but that's OK. Being kind, compassionate, educated, logical, and reaching out to others are all things I strive for. For this, I am happy with many of the moral conclusions I have come to thus far.
Humor is also an important aspect of my life. Sarcasm is fantastic.
In the past year I've become very involved in mindfulness meditation. It has made a significant impact on my life and I hope to share it with others. I am currently organizing a mindfulness program at my school and hope to see it flourish within the coming years.
I thought I'd spend this summary explaining mostly what's in my head, rather than what I do. However, a brief list of my hobbies seems appropriate. Besides my academic endeavors, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, playing golf, playing poker, exercising, going out, clubbing, snowboarding, as well as pretty much anything that involves having fun ^_^
