Where wild minds come to rest
I'm new to this site, so I feel like I would like to offer a small tidbit of who I think I am, or at least, the important things that define me (for good or ill).
I'm an English Major, which (apologies in advance) means I will often write length blog posts (my essays are always 800+ words over the limit). and a Philosophy Minor. I love exploring the human condition. I love ethics, and I love considering Metaphysics. I tend to think in pictures rather than words. I'm stubborn, hard on myself, and value my alone time. I do martial arts. I'm a dreamer. I'll admit that I'm slightly in love with every one of my characters, and it breaks my heart. I hope to write a story one day, but know that my creative writing skills are currently not enviable to say the least. I love music, though I have nothing to contribute to the field. I love to sketch, and do well enough for my own purposes, though always wish I could improve. I strongly believe in the need to explore the demons of human nature while still staying in touch with the angels. I am very strongly affected by things that aren't directly related to me (i.e. daydreams, books, music, ideas), while pushing away emotions that relate to me, myself personally. I shy away from interpersonal connections for fear of vulnerability. I cannot handle being vulnerable. Because of this, I feel generally pretty socially inept (though I have people tell me otherwise, however I have good reason to doubt them). I'm an awkward person, which people will acknowledge. I'm a techno-phobe in some ways. I value what technology has done for us, but I fear the road down which it is taking us. I'm opinionated about capitalism and politics. I try to learn from every situation and person I come across, and always value argument. I always want to learn; I want to learn another language, motorbike, I want to travel, and become a stronger person, physically and mentally.
And that's me! In a nutshell of blurbs. Thanks for adding me on this site :) I hope to get to know you all.
