I love the Humanities! I really enjoy World History and Geography, as well as learning about each culture I encounter. Naturally, I enjoy travelling abroad, despite the fact that I live in the most wonderful region in the world (though perhaps, those who hate rainy weather may not agree). I am especially interested in Military History, as well as the history and culture of France. My username should give you the impression that I'm somewhat of a Francophile, though I have yet to improve my French! In reality though, I'm interested in all aspects of history, whether it be the Incas or Byzantines, Spain or China, and so forth. I feel that History and Geography can help us understand the world's conflicts and tribulations better, and allow us to comprehend the difficulties that other countries face today.
Outside of World History and Geography, I also appreciate Macroeconomics because it allows us to see the global economy and its tendencies and progressions. While I understand that some may think that the plethora of economic models and coefficients is too difficult to grasp, in my eyes Macroeconomics simplifies economics by condensing statistics into numerical data. Models such as the Solow-Swan Model for intensive capital help quantify our world's diverse and complex markets.
Wikipedia is special to me because it is always the first resource I go to when researching a topic. While definitely not the most reliable source out there, the lists of references is tremendously useful for pursuing a subject further. I hope to contribute to this encyclopedia further so that future generations of aspiring learners, like me, can make use of this truly grand resource. I'm a rather new editor on Wikipedia, though I guess I can call myself a "prolific" reader - like so many others here, I'm curious to learn more about this fascinating, interconnected world we live in. If you find one my edits/actions questionable, please feel free to comment on my talk page.
Oh, and if you're wondering I chose my username - it was simply one of the few that were not taken yet. Picking a Wikipedia username is a bit tough at times!
