About Me I'm lively, energetic, loud definately, open-minded, outspoken, liberal. I love politics and social justice issues and just the idea of equality. I love just talking about the world and philosophy and justice, right and wrong, good and bad, different and same, new and old, change. I love music, all kinds. And I write it. My music collection has all types: rock, classical, ethnic, hip-hop, blues/jazz, dance, latin, pop, r&b/soul, EVERYTHING!
Fitness is an interest but I've yet to be able to set aside time to truly work on it.
I just love life and am always willing to listen and learn. AND LIVE.

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy "There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance."
--Socrates
What Gives Me Hope music
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Actually I plan on being President. We need to start with education. I believe it is the root to everything. But we can't get anywhere with education if we don't change some of the things that are preventing free and open communication/teaching. Many of these problems can be found domestically, not just abroad. First I would work towards fixing the problems domestically as well as offer aid to third world countries so they can work on their issues too. It's not about countries fixing each other persay. Nor is it about who is leading the world, similar to the whole "Bush fixing Iraq thing". It's about everyone working together and sharing resources in order to provide the best world for all people.
What/who changed my life and why A few:
My Great Aunt, because she encouraged me to learn and showed me how to care.
The World Affairs Seminar because it opened my mind to issues outside of what affected me.
Crash because it opened my mind to the human aspect of social/cultural issues. It showed how human feeling can affect action and consequence. And most importantly how fear, especially of the unknown, can hurt people. It taught me to learn rather than not know.
