I am mindful, self-aware, and present. I'm mostly an introvert with quick and sudden moments where I really feel like an extrovert. The most important things in my life are my friends, reading, and to live a life that is fulfilled with meaning and curiosity. Oh, music is fundamental to my life, as well. I want to see the world, and change the world. But mostly, I want to read and write about the world.
I've really been getting into reading academic journals, essays, periodicals, and more and more history. I'm sort of in a committed relationship with reading and writing. It's quite serious.
