After much self-inquiry, debate, and research, I have decided to take time off school and travel to India to discover my true nature. Buddhism has been of high interest to me recently, and despite my many worldly dreams of money, power, and possessions (and perceived ability to achieve them), I convinced myself that these externalities are not capable of providing unwavering happiness due to the inevitable fact of constant change. Instead, true happiness must come from within, and so I will be spending the next year pursuing self-knowledge, the most personally important field of science.
