Hi! My name is Calvin Athy and I am an overly ambitious knucklehead. I am impulsive, adventurous with food, enjoy the occasional cocktail, and strive to be advantageous to myself and others. I am a personal believer of Jesus Christ and strive to glorify him through my actions, thoughts, and intellect. As you may have noticed, I am not the beautiful red-headed woman in the picture above and below; instead I am the slightly less good-looking male with the goofy expression on his face. The girl shown above and below is my beautiful wife Grace. She is all I could ever ask for in a woman.cropped-dsc_1776-1.jpg

I named my blog calvin’scatharis because I felt it accurately defined why I became interested in blogging. Catharsis is defined as “the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions”. I want to use my blog as an method to release the hundreds of different thoughts, ideas, and emotions that buzz through my head on a daily basis.

I wanted to use this blog as an avenue to express my thoughts and feelings—simple enough. However, there are a few areas of interest that I want to touch on in my post; specifically social issues and injustice, daily news, politics, psychology and random aspects of my life. At the very least, my blog will be a platform for me to express my own thoughts and opinions. At times I may be extremely vulnerable, and that’s okay. More than anything, this blog is to hopefully broaden others perspectives on different world events and issues. I personally believe one of the biggest threats to society is to be uninformed about what is going on. And in order to overcome our existing biases, we need to be educated holistically about different issues and agendas. At the very least, I hope to challenge your existing thoughts and ideas.
