This is Matt. I'm nineteen, going to college here in Sacramento. At present, the plan is to double-major in English and philosophy and minor in music, which selections are reflective of my interests and what I consider my areas of greatest potential. The notion of being an academician appeals to me, so it seems likely that I'll be in school for as long as I can, perhaps both as a teacher (of philosophy, I hope) and as a student.
You should know that I consider myself a Christian, one whose spirituality and devotion are of utmost concern, but I advise you to make as few assumptions regarding my beliefs as you can.
I prefer listening to speaking, and reading to writing, and I'm here primarily for my own growth and enlightenment, so I can't promise any profound contributions to the dialogue (not that I'm really capable of those anyway).
