About Me

I am a twenty year old student working my way through college. I created this blog in order to express my own unique thoughts and ideas, as well as learn others opinions. I was born in Las Vegas, but also spent much time in Chicago, so I associate myself with both. Everything that I talk about isn't based on credentials and degrees in their respected fields. They are all based on my own personal experiences and investigations I have conducted in the past. These opinions of mine are exactly that: opinions. They are not fact. I do not want my readers to believe I state these as facts, because they are not. I like the idea of having open minded blogs because it gives you the opportunity to state your own opinion. I hope all of you enjoy reading my posts, and comments are always welcome. Thank you for visiting and enjoy.

Speaking My Mind

Since I was young my thoughts and opinions on many subjects and matters have influenced my personality and behavior, my ideas and thoughts. However I have always kept these opinions to myself, believing that others wouldn't care to know what my thoughts were. Once I left highschool and entered college, this belief of mine went through a radical change. I found myself in argument courses yearning to have my voice heard. It was then i decided to completely break my quiet habit and speak out. As I did, I noticed something remarkable, yet quite obvious: My classmates had comments on my own beliefs. Of course, this is not to say they were all good comments. I wrote a paper on religion and in return received a three page letter of hate remarks from an anonymous classmate. After this incident I relized I enjoy sharing my thoughts with others, and hearing what others have to say about my thoughts. The hate letter didn't discourage me, rather it gave me a new perspective on my own topic. I have set up this blog for that one reason: To voice my opinion, and hear what others have to say about it.
