My name is Lucien Maverick. I am a self-termed creative intellectual. I have dedicated the bulk of my life to increasing my awareness of the various topics that interest me. There are so many. As it stands, I am predominantly interested in stories, politics, and puzzles. Life full of puzzles that the observant eye can solve. I am an atheist, naturally. A truly skeptical person can’t accept anything on faith. And needing facts to prove religion is crazy. I am also a skeptic, and proud of it. What I want to do with my life is to make a difference. To open up people’s minds to new ideas, and to talk through old ones. That’s my idea, anyway. Kind of a slow start.
I am also a journalism student in Alaska. I love the media. I love Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the Rachel Maddow Show, and I used to dig the Bill Moyer’s Journal. May Moyer’s Journal rest in peace. I am pretty much good at anything I have ever really wanted to do. I have yet for something to come difficult to me. It is a gift. I am bisexual, which I suppose doesn’t matter much about anything. Since I am not all that much to look at and way too outspoken politically and religious philosophically to impress potential mates.
I don’t mind media bias. I am, should I go into the media field, (I am focusing my education to become part of a public relations firm) going to be part of the “professional left,” a moniker, which I hate, by the way. There are two groups, the liberals, who think, and the conservatives who don’t. I am against the corporate stranglehold on this country, and I think that I’m the only one. I am a fan of active dissent, and I encourage it wherever possible. I guess that’s about it.
My career goal is…well, I don’t quite know. I would love to get into public relations, working for a news outlet or for political campaigns for liberals who actually stand up for the liberal ideals. I would love to someday become a political commentator, but one step at a time.
