    At Least I Use To…

    I don’t have many worthwhile conversations in my current line of work. I remember using the word “ponder” in a sentence once and my co-worker said “Waz that mean?” I miss having conversations that pushed the boundaries of what I know, and challenges me to go and learn...

    I Need to Be Challenged Occasionally

    So Long As You Know What You Are Talking About

        I love having intelligent conversations with people. But I could talk to anyone about anything. I really just don't like it when people try to have an intelligent conversation and they have no idea what they are talking about. That really irritates me. There are...

    I don't just like it I NEED It.

    I find not many people get me, I tend to get bored very easily. I enjoy someone that can challenge my mind, maybe make me look at things from another angle, a good debate. The world is a huge place full of many different ideologies, philosophies, views. Share them.
