About Me


To get through college and start living life!


I am a headstrong individual who is eager to see the world. Some would consider me naively idealistic, but i consider myself hopeful--having faith in the goodness of humankind. This is what I call living by one's ideals.

Destination: HOME


I believe that one can only truly learn through experience. One can be taught lessons in a classroom or be sermoned by knowing elders, but unless a person experiences these lessons on his or her own the lesson is only heard (if even), but not learned.. I make it a point in life to experience as much as possible, as early as possible. Some experiences only come with age, so patience is key, but the younger one is, the less he or she has to lose. The point: Do what you want to do now, live in the moment, relish in the experiences in life--even the bad ones are necessary in appreciating the good. You're alive! [I wrote this back when I was 17 and first joined CS. Words seem too wise for the me as I am now to fully comprehend.]
