I grew up in a country town. Moved to Sydney for a physics degree. Relationship with physics is rocky at best; I prefer not to talk about it. I've been in the real world since 2012. Let's not talk about that either.
End boring autobiographical information.
I often find myself enthralled in the universe around me. If I was able to, I'm fairly certain I could lose myself in wonder for days at a time. I don't think many people notice that we live in a crazy, improbable universe. I'm fascinated by the smallest, most trivial things; all around you is a hive of impossible activity: the complicated biochemical pathway for photosynthesis, the craziness of the size of the universe and just how empty it really is, the manner that chaotic human behaviour somehow results in a society, everyday random interactions with people who are living their own lives who you will probably never see again, the seeming impossibility of consciousness, potentially how little of our actions are from rational conscious though.
Apparently I'm also incapable of communicating the concept of awe.
I feel most alive when I'm volunteering or walking outdoors.
I have had more than my fair share of existential crises. 0/5 stars would not buy from vendor again.
I love learning and self-improvement. This is part of the reason for volunteering; not only am I putting something into the community, I am getting something back. I attend my local Toast Masters club to try improve my public speaking. One day I would like to learn how to dance, even just to improve my horrific body language (I must say that I have the strangest body language).
[I'm not looking for anything serious at the moment. I'm quite interested in meeting people and having interesting conversations! Preferably over a drink, those are always the best interesting conversations.]
