I really, really enjoy music, partying, movies, knowledge, and partying... Definitely partying, and reading. I like to think I'm modest, but I have a strange theory I am subconsciously constantly fishing for compliments, like, say, being modest! It's a confusing world, and I'm still trying to figure out what I consider the point of living and thinking is. Why are we here? Why do I think? Why should I think about why I think? Why is it wrong to be conditioned, like in Brave New World; I'm still just as happy, just from different things? Is there really human nature? I usually just decide yes, because we evolved to this, but this is disgusting. Look around you.

My biggest question to religious people (PS I love reading the Bible): how can you wake up in your bed, surrounded by your material goods, in a world completely created by somebody else, some worker, some business, some machine, and believe in God? Believe in a collection of stories by nomads in the middle east in 5000 BC? Please, inform me.

I realllllly want to read Neitzche, Mostly Harmless, Silmarillion (I love the Encyclopedias of Middle Earth), etc. Recommend me some books!
