I discovered a joy for writing essays in university. While it can be restrictive, the form of the academic paper nevertheless enables a kind of hyper-specific inquiry that, in my experience at least, often yields remarkable insights into human nature and civilization. I've written papers on a wide variety of subjects, from The Dark Knight to Father John Misty, Newton's conception of time to the Bible, Ulysses to silicon valley utopianism. Whatever the specific question, I hope you find something here that resonates. Please let me know if you have any questions; I'm always eager to continue the conversation beyond simply the paper that I've written for a class.
