See, the real life Cristina Haines isn't really allowed to be as eccentric as I am here on this blog. I'm hyper-interested in just about everything, which isn't really socially acceptable in person. Plus, I chose a college major (psychology) in which the material presented was extremely limited. This is my space to be rebellious and let my mind wander onto whatever topics I want. The sky is the limit to what I can write about, given that I have the time. Remember in school when you vowed that when you got out you would read for fun? Well, that's me right now. And I'm loving it.
I recently chose the tag line "Love learning, Learning love" because I had finally found a catch phrase that described me: I love learning more than I love just about anything else (except God), and since I'm a Christian, I temper this with due compassion for my fellowman and an avoidance of pride as outlined in Scripture. So basically, the overarching topic is just me and whatever I enjoy. I outline many of my interests in my About Me section to the right of this page, and I go a little more in depth on my About page. If you share an interest (or two) with me, by all means follow me. It might be a nearly impossible, however, to be interested in everything I post. I don't really blog for an audience; I just blog for enjoyment. (That might change as this blog evolves.)
And okay, so maybe politics is only "learning" in the philosophical sense, but part of the reason I love politics so much is because it challenges me to see through all the crap and find out what's really true—and that requires research, which a lot of people, content with their own pre-formed opinions, don't do. I enjoy this research, and I feel like I have a knack for it because I'm skeptical almost to a fault (remember how I mentioned that I hated my college major? That's because it was wishy-washy.)
I hope you enjoy my eccentricity and enthusiasm every now and again. I'll try to blog more often—maybe it would help if I did series posts? I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks for reading.
