When Alyssa isn’t in a blind panic regarding her Ph.D. studies, she is reading about one or more of her multitudinous interests. Alyssa reads about the many weird and wonderful animals and plants of this world, especially those that might be Alex's pets someday. She reads about ethnographic history all over the world and how cultural identifiers shape world events. Alyssa reads about philosophy, science, and art. Basically, Alyssa spends entirely too much time in bouts of SIWOTI and Wikipedia freefall and wants to share that joy with the world.
So, Alyssa writes about science, philosophy, geography, social justice, and anything else that has a special place in her heart.
