"... Whatever you live is life." - Robert Penn Warren
WelcomeAbout meContributionsAwardsInformationUserboxes


Welcome to my user page!

I enjoy anything and everything, and that is part of why I love Wikipedia. I love people, and I love the Earth and animals, too. I believe strongly that it is not that hard to be nice to people; I have no patience for anyone who is not nice... It's the least you can do in life. :)

I could list hundreds of interests, but some major ones include:

  • Politics • Animals • Literature • History • Art • Philosophy • Vegetarianism • Music • Different countries and cultures • People and the crazy things they do • Ron Paul! • Computers and technology • Science • People who accomplished significant things but are now lost to history

I used to live internationally and I want to again someday. I love to travel and see new places and meet people from different cultures.
