Untitled design (3)I want to know it all. I’m one of those people who reads everything and anything that comes up on my Facebook feed. I follow everything from I Fucking Love Science to Quora to Fortune Magazine to Pauline Nordin‘s fitness page. Topics that interest me are fitness and nutrition, leadership, soft skills, and self-improvement, sciences, technology, business, the list goes on. Every time I find something interesting that I can’t read right away I either save it in Pocket or click the Save Post link on Facebook. Just like my bookshelf, these are in serious backlog.
