One Amazing Thing I've Done

The meditation retreat I attended was one of the most peaceful days of my life. Hitchhiking up the west coast was also pretty sweet.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to be able to share the wonderful things I am learning about math, science, and critical thinking. I would also like to share my enjoyment of life, and love for people and adventure. From others, I enjoy learning about their life experiences and whatever they have to teach.
