In my 24 years of life (I am newly 24 and it feels pretty cool to stress this) I have developed some very powerful thoughts and feelings and opinions on a wide variety of topics, on life in general, and I think that they could be of significant use to people—a lot of people. I want to address some of the things that I’ve come to consider to be the highest glories and honorable pursuits in this endlessly fascinating and beautiful world that we all inhabit. I genuinely believe that my thoughts and feelings, hopes and dreams, habits, passions, and beliefs could really have a significant impact on the world if I could somehow positively reach out to enough people (in fact, this happens to be one of the pursuits that I consider to be most meaningful). If these thoughts and feelings at least provoke some insightful thoughts then I have succeeded in the major (reasonable) portion of what I have set out to do. But I hope that people might be even more deeply affected and thoughtful of these ideas that I’ve come to cherish, as I have been so deeply affected and thoughtful in developing them. Then maybe they will adopt some of them for themselves, and help to spread them even further. I want to infect the world.
