I am a sixth year catholic student enrolled in the Oregon State University Honors College. I am working towards degrees in Biology, Psychology, and Philosophy. My path toward this curriculum was very convoluted but fulfilling. I worked several jobs throughout the process, such as logging, berry picking, customer service, medical scribing, and social work. I finally found my passion in pursuing studies pertaining to the mind. Therefore, I am interested in studying the mind from the perspectives of Psychology, Philosophy, Religion, Biology, Cognitive Science, Mindfulness, and Positive Psychology, among several other subjects. If there is one thing that I hope to accomplish with this blog, it is to help spread optimism, hope, positivity, and fulfillment through topics that I find interesting. I welcome your contributions to my content!
