I like to think I think deep thoughts. I also try to better myself and the world around me, one insight, one person at a time. And even though it sometimes scares me, I'm a grown-ass adult, with all the changed priorities as compared to my 20's that goes with that. But with a huge silly side. One cannot be a proper camp counselor (my annual summer volunteer pursuit) without being able to be completely off-the-wall.
I see the universe as a place that gets more beautiful, more amazing the more we learn about it. Knowing the physics of light diffraction by prisms and water droplets doesn't make rainbows any less beautiful, and understanding chocolate's effects on neurochemistry doesn't make it taste any less delicious. I'm on a never-ending quest for knowledge and understanding, with the goal of spreading, as wisely as I can, both what I've learned so far and the infectious curiosity that makes me want to learn more.
A friend has told me that I sound like her inner feminist. I consider this to be one of the greatest compliments I have ever received.
