What I love most in the world is talking to people, people smarter than me, people braver than me, people with bigger hearts than I. I learn from them. People have a million different opinions, and many of them are based in ignorance of the realities of the world, and many are based in a level of knowledge unsurpassed in their field. I find that I personally always think of an opinion as right or wrong. Looking past all that, I think that if one person just starting talking about the big issues, and the small ones, just started asking anyone who would speak their side of the story, we would all learn so much.
I’m enrolled in a Psychology degree because I can’t just start talking to people and making money for it. I’m not a skilled orator or writer, but I want to understand the human condition as deeply as possible so that I can bring back what I learn, and show people a better path. Sometimes all I will be able to do is help someone I meet step out of their issues and move past them, and that’s a pretty great thing.

I don’ have great plans, because I want to make sure I’m doing the best I can, and I haven’t found it yet. Honest response.
