Hello everyone. I've been browsing through several writing forums recently and this one feels the most inviting. I hope I can get to know some of you and that our interactions will prove mutually beneficial. For my part I am an engineering major in college who (not so secretly) has a heart for the expression of human thoughts and emotions in addition to the curiosity about "how things work" that defines my chosen course of study. Although I frequently find words inadequate (perhaps my vocabulary could use some work), writing has been a critical means of expressing myself.
