My self-summary
Things I currently want to talk about:
-House of Cards.

I'm an engineering graduate student. I currently spend my free time rock climbing and playing board games. I write for a progressive publication.

I believe the purpose of science is to make the world better than it was when we got here. I believe that the right to self-determination is the fundamental human right. We determine what our lives mean.

I read sometimes.
