Grow, learn, and connect with people.
I am all over the place in a lot of ways and I can fit in with lots of different people and in lots of different situations. Sometimes I want to read Marx and wax philosophical and others I sit and try to teach myself programming languages. I'm happy going out and having adventures, or staying home and baking or reading all day. I also like to watch baseball.
I'm an empathetic materialist. In other words, I am driven by compassion for those around me, even strangers; and I am fascinated by the way objects, things, people, and events constantly interact to produce new, changing situations.
