Passions: Discourse

I believe everyone has a passion. Some people love to travel, some love music, whatever it is, everyone has something. Me? I have discourse. Engaging in good conversations is my passion. I will put aside my life to carry on a great conversation. When I have good conversations I become energetic, awake, alive! The mental stimulation puts me into an euphoric state. It's like a drug, in which I require a constant fix, as to not suffer from withdrawl. Philosophy is not only my major but my life. I meet with friends to discuss philosophy; I organize dinners with philosophy professors; I eat, drink, and breath philosophy. I believe every time I carry on a good conversation in which good questions are asked and discussed, I am living life to the fullest. My most memorable moment is spending a friday night in an empty conference room with 3 of my friends, talking about philosophy and writing up arguments on the white board. Philosophy is something I love and hate at the same time. I assure you, it is a very thin line. I bet my first word was, "why?" It was most certainly the most repeated word, that's for sure.
