Being introverted. If it is not already common knowledge, that does not mean I am not social. In fact, I am very comfortable in social situations and meeting new people and I generally am outgoing as a rule. Ultimately I internalize though. I am most comfortable in solitude. I draw energy from being alone

I also think about the nature of education and teaching since I'm studying to become a teacher. I love the idea of being a part of the development of a child's mind. It is a great responsibility and privilege.
