About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be more tolerant

ABOUT ME

I like to enjoy the simple things. Looking, talking, reading, listening, moving. I am interning at a NGO right now in Kunming called PSI. I am also taking Chinese classes. In March I'll be heading back to the US to go to grad school for Public Health. From now until then I hope to enjoy every minute of my time here in China.

PHILOSOPHY

I think Daoism can teach us a lot about how to experience life. I personally find a lot of comfort and peace in this philosophy, even though its sometimes near impossible to follow (try "being like water" when someone sitting next to you at a restaurant hocks a loogie while your eating).
