About Daniel Tierney 8 Articles
This sentence describes Dan well. Not this sentence, but the previous. A student who often forgets assignments might compose such a statement hastily at the beginning of class. Because you can assume that, the sentence accurately describes a poor student. Thus, they have completed an assignment asking them to write a short biography. Because they completed the assignment, doesn't that mean that they are actually a good student, and the biography is wrong? The ability to overthink absolutely anything is an important characteristic of Dan. Dan also enjoys science, reading, writing, philosophizing, and creating new things.

About Luis Tobon 0 Articles
If you need an idea of what I am like, then look up at a clear night sky, and behold an infinite. Vast quantities of an abyss born and broke in nanoseconds. There's so much out there, knowledge made or lost to the stars. Some bits older than the collective human history, potentially outliving our race. So when you really take the time to consider it, can you actually believe yourself? You're here, on this small hunk of rock floating in nothing, orbiting centuries-old flames that rage on in a vacuum. You bear witness to this raw, unadulterated universe, and yet you continue, "thinking" and "feeling". And what is that anyways, "feeling" or "thinking"? How can you be sure this is even real, that you're not in a coma and this being a figment of your imagination, a desperate attempt by your subconscious to wake you up? There are no limits to such thoughts and feelings, other than the delicate lines we draw for ourselves Lines who make us who we are. And this is the like that runs through my mind.
