i find joy in learning new concepts, seeing new perspectives and achieving small set goals. i enjoy collecting quotes/insights from songs/movies/books, ranging from cliches like 'smile and the world smiles back' to adages like ' this too shall pass' to political soundbites like 'yes, we can!' to my top of list: Heath Ledger's Joker's 'Why. So. Seerious??' from the Dark Knight.
I am curious, slightly quirky and whimsically pensive at times.
