Because I trust in the ever-changing climate of the heart. (At least, today I feel that way.) I think it is necessary to have many experiences for the sake of feeling something; for the sake of being challenged, and for the sake of being expressive, to offer something to someone else, to learn what we are capable of.

My mind is cluttered with countless bits of useless information (e.g. New York Michelin-starred restaurants; list of Stanley Kubrick / David Lynch / Lars von Trier / [insert director here] films I have never even seen), these would probably serve me well if I were to enter a pop culture quiz show, or Jeopardy. For some reason I have good recall for seemingly unnecessary things; on the other hand I tend to forget the “essential” stuff like program syntax, cooking basics (what is the ratio of rice:water again?), proper camera settings, and the like. An intervention should be in order.
