Life Lab

I’m addicted to learning. Specifically, experimenting in new fields where I have zero experience. Neil Strauss in Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead concludes the book with eleven life lessons with one of them being:

Fix your issues now, because the older you get, the worse they become. People who grow up in stable homes with unconditional love, such as Gwen Stefani or Sacha Baron Cohen, tend to stay out of trouble, while others who suffer from trauma, abandonment, or even simply neglect in childhood often sabotage their career and their life.”

I take that quote to heart and constantly try to improve myself, to better my character. Here, I’ll chronicle some of the experiments I’ve tried/trying and how successful they have been.
