i like discussing art and art theory, i like reading about neuroscience and science in general, i enjoy watc/horror/etc movies, i love reading and reading about webcomics, i'm currently doing some world building for a story i might write and that's about it really, i am exceptionally boring
i found psychology to be interesting, but mostly lacking in its explanations
classic psychology does talk about hormonal imbalances and the like but barely scratches the surface in terms of biochemistry
reading most psychology books felt like reading a catalogue of strange behaviours that remained largely unexplained
neuroscience on the other hand, despite being a recent field of study, can not only point toward physical traits (neuroanatomy) that are anomalous in psychologically disordered patients, but also sheds a really interesting light on everyday human behaviour
it's just really fascinating, like you can find out how to alter your mental state via simple changes in your diet!
i'm currently reading that dorian gray story by oscar wilde and i'm sorry i called it that but i dont know the english title u_u i like reading pretty much everything nonfiction, character studies, thrillers and well pretty much everything, there are good books in every genre
lacking in explanations as in um well, if you look up any sort of mental disorder, you'll get a list of symptoms and a list of possibilities on how a person might have acquired said disorder
typically it's just things like "familial issues, cultural expectations, stress" etc. etc., but neuroscience gives you an overlook on the genetical, neuronal and hormonal makeup of a person who suffers from said illness
also it offers a more biological explanation, say, a certain mental illness is caused by failure to correctly process a certain kind of hormone
it's, uh, another level of scientific abstraction that goes deeper than psychology, it shows you how mechanical issues in your body cause mental issues and you feel much more "connected" to the people who suffer from (other) mental disorders (than you do) because it shows how vulnerable the biological system is to simple failures in, say, metabolism
aw, i'm afraid i've never heard of those :c what're they about?
oh, it's communication design, so i get to study illustration, drawing, art history, photography, cinematography, typography, writing, etc. etc. all in one package until i decide which art field to pursue for the rest of the course. it's pretty neat
