About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To never live out the "American Dream"

ABOUT ME

I am an individual who loves change. I have had many phases in my life (be it the way I dress, present myself, things I find interesting, etc) and expect many more. The phase I am currently in is studying Environmental Science in Norwich, England. But don't expect that phase to last long! As I am nearing the end of my degree, I sometimes find the monotony of school a lot to handle since I get very "itchy feet", ie. I need to see new places and people often. I hate routines. I strongly value learning but I also strongly believe a University education is only one small type of learning. Thus after this degree, I intend to travel and learn first-hand from people all around the world how to practise sustainable living. I am tried of taking things for granted and so consequently, I have a great thirst for knowledge which enables independent, off-the-grid living. One day, I aspire to live in a commune like setting. Yep. That's me. Well, at least for the moment.

ps- A vegetarian I am...

PHILOSOPHY

On most days (I would love to say all days. But I can't lie, there are random days where I wake up grumpy and generally lackluster for life :-p), I love the heck out of life and where I am in my life. I like to believe that I live my life in a manner which is closest to my morals as feasibly possible under the given circumstances. May you interpret that last, long-winded statement however you see fit :-)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I am continually amazed by the beauty of the natural world. One thing that always leaves me awestruck is the sound, the "silence" that fills your ears when you pause to listen while out in the back country.

Another thing that leaves me awestruck is how fantastic combinations of food textures and smells are!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to discuss how everything is a construction and a representation. I would be more than willing to teach you how to crochet, play the penny whistle, and the value in riding the bus all day long.
