My name is Shai. I’m 23 years old, I live in Israel, where I was born and raised. I have recently escaped a downward spiral that culminated in an attempted suicide, excommunication of all my friends, and great crimes that I’ve committed in an 18 months-long phase in my life that was dominated by insane grievance. The reason for all of this is the traumatic demise of my late mother, which caused me to become so engrossed in grief, that I have simply lost all likeness to the man I was.
But, for several months, all of this is behind me now. Now I’m sitting on a calm shore, trying to rebuild everything from scratch. And in many ways, this process has been going well.
I think the best way to describe myself is by pointing out the things I’ll be writing about. I will write about everything that I like, think about, do or have strong or even any kind of feelings about. I’ll put poetry and random philosophical musings in this blog. I will write about belief and disbelief (being an atheist, I have a lot to say about the matter). I will write about science, being the science afficionado that I am. Hopefully, in some negligible way, I will get to promote science in any way I can.
I will write about the deaf. Being the second born of two deaf parents (one of them, as mentioned above, is no longer alive). I will write about what it means to help the deaf and to be a hearing child to deaf parents.
I will write about animals and about biology, my most beloved field of science.
I will also write about martial arts and martial philosophy, both two key elements of my personality, as I’ve started training when I was only 12, and martial arts and philosophy have been a strong influence on me throughout puberty.
I will also write about silly shit that makes me laugh 🙂 And hopefully, anyone who’d be reading this.
I’m strong-opinioned, but flexible and patient. I adore objective, respectful discussions, especially when the discussion is between two people with different opinions who are both willing to hear what the other side has to say.
Oh, and in case this is an important issue, I am (quite) taken. I’ve been coupled with a crazy and amazing beautiful young lady who’s also been quite an influence on my personality. I will refer to her here as I do in real life as any of the variants of “pitz” (i.e pitzush, pish, pishush, etc.)
That’s about it, I guess. Knock yourselves out.
