"Consciousness is, in effect, the key to a life examined, for better and for worse, our beginner's permit into knowing all about the hunger, the thirst, the sex, the tears, the laughter, the kicks, the punches, the flow of images we call thought, the feelings, the words, the stories, the beliefs, the music and the poetry, the happiness and the ecstasy. At its simplest and most basic level, consciousness lets us recognize an irresistible urge to stay alive and develop a concern for the self. At its most complex and elaborate level, consciousness helps us develop a concern for other selves and improve the art of life." - Antonio Damasio
My name is Avery. FtM. My high score on Flappy Bird is 151. I'm half deaf. I am pursuing a dual degree (Deaf Studies/Religion) and a double minor (Sociology/French) at Boston University. I struggle with an eating disorder, depression, and anxiety, so if I'm MIA for a few days, that's why. It's also where a lot of my poetry comes from. Photos are black and white until you hover. Don't Blink.
