WELCOME TO SURPRISING LIVES’

A note from the site’s author:

In my vision of a perfect world I always expected (and was also urged) to finally settle down to one specific niche. Unfortunately, what ended up happening over the years was that I’d commit to a specific direction, throw myself into it wholeheartedly and hate it 6 months later. Not a particularly productive way to go.

Finally, I have realized and most importantly accepted that I will never be a one topic person. My education and careers up to this point have been completely different so why did I think that something would change?

“I am who I am, with the strengths and passions that I have, and I’m a sum of all of them.”

There’s no fighting it, so I’ve decided to join it all together and this site is the jumping off point. Enjoy exploring.
