I am (Me)^2 Xn. Square “me,” pronounce the Greek letter chi incorrectly, add on a variable “n” to the end, and you will know my name. To me, everything is a puzzle. Life is a puzzle. We lay down the edge and corner pieces first because like education and parent guidance, they prepare us for what is to come. The inner pieces represent our adventures, experiences, family, people who we meet, emotions, thoughts, etc. With all the pieces together, the entire puzzle represents the world that we had constructed our actions and others’ help. As you can probably guess, I am a nerd. While many people tag the word with a negative connotation, I would like to agree to disagree. A nerd is passionate about what he or she does, whether it is playing League of Legends or studying for the upcoming AP Calculus final. Passion drives one to improve oneself, excel, and achieve one’s dreams. Dreams and imagination are interrelated. We use our imagination to formulate dreams and goals that we strive to reach or wish to reach. Some imagination remains trapped in our dreams, but others escape, and that kind of imagination is the root of innovation, the derivative of a solution, and the first step to a creation. -Mimi
