I live to learn. I want to learn it all!
I reset my OKC question today (Mar. 30, 2014). I feel that I've grown and changed so much since the last time I answered these questions that many answers fail to reflect my current self.
I love Kimchi Cuddles. It's a great resource for considering several angles on polyamory and gender-awareness, while still being cute.
I'm fascinated by mathematics, I'm absorbed by programming, and I'm curious about all of the sciences.
I'm cautious around labels. When someone says "liberal" or "conservative", it means nothing to me until you've defined what that means to you.
I'm wary of public media. Cable television often disgusts me, and I never watch it. The news is best absorbed at my pace. I often use Facebook/Twitter to get my news in the form of my social network.
I'm aware of *-shaming, several *isms, and I try to increase awareness of these things. It's unfortunate that people continue to find ways to hate each other, when we should be finding more ways to work together.
I'm an introvert. I tend to keep to myself. I often (silently) carry great gratitude for those that are dear to me, and eventually express it by feeding them. I'm getting better about expressing this gratitude with words.
Religion scares me. I tolerate it in others, but I prefer to keep it far and away from me. I'm convinced that it's a poison. The best things that have come of religion are an excuse to bring people together and form communities - but there are better and healthier ways to bring people together: co-ops, community recreation centers, libraries, meetup groups, etc.
