To understand the human condition!
Thoughtful, inquisitive and analytical, yet abstract and 'zany' in thinking.
Understanding is fun, knowledge enhances our experiences. Yet life is suffering, all things are transitory. Struggle makes us wiser.
I still feel ill-equipt to understand the world, therefore I'm trying to become smarter. One day I hope to be able to use this knowledge to benefit humanity.
I also enjoy eating!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Mmmmm, maybe not particularly amazing by back-packer standards, but I once purchased a second-hand Vietnam-made bicycle in Ho Chi Minh city and then rode in North-ward to Hanoi. Then I rode it into Laos. The bicycle broke down many times, especially its brakes, resulting in two incidents in which I could have been badly injured. The 'amazing' part of this 3-month bicycle journey was the sights seen and the experience of solitarity.
Teach, Learn, Share
I know a little bit about biology and a little bit about religion.
I'd like to know more about emotions and about why people make the decisions that they do.
