Today I am cynical. I want to be optimistic, but it's difficult.
Last year, I decided to study Civil Engineering. This was mainly because the field interested me, and I had the naive hope that I could learn enough to help do good things in this world. I think it's possible, but, in my current mindset, I feel like too many important decisions are made with all too little information or thought.
Some days I'm optimistic though. I've chosen to chart writing my thoughts only in order to share my interpretations on what I'm learning. So, if you're starting on this very first post, don't worry: it's not going to be me complaining about the world everyday. I like to try to put a positive spins in things.
