Hi, and welcome to my blog! I’m JC, and this is my little corner of the Internet. By day, I’m a professor at a research university, and by night, I write about a variety of extracurricular interests. These interests range from fashion to personal finance to home improvement.
The name of this blog comes from one of my favorite quotes, by Oliver Sacks in his New York Times article: “Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure.”
A bit morbid perhaps; but hey, it’s hard to come up with a unique blog name that isn’t “justanotherblog308498.wordpress.com”.
The pic on the right is me saying hi, from a recent vacation in Mexico.
Thanks for stopping by!
