Hi, I'm Hilary.

It took me a bit to re-figure out all this techinical stuff, but I think I have the hang of it now! I'm a sophomore this year and I plan on majoring in biology. My hometown is the Seattle-Tacoma, WA area. I am an only child, but I have tons of cousins to make up for it! And the craziest family. Ever. I play the violin, guitar, flute, harmonica, and am a champion kazoo player. I love to write everything from movie scripts to making up song. Mixing bioligy and any other study fascinates me- it makes me want to look at the world wholistically.

I worked at a zoo and aquarium for three years, so I am more than happy to go on and on about random animal facts. I took Paul's C-Sem class last year in which we discussed some of these ideas on a broader scale. I'm really looking forward to focus directly on the scientfic aspects of evolution and to get everyone's viewpoints from class discussions plus here on the blog. 

My questions that I thought of in class were:

1. How do stories fit into  the biological forma of evolution?

2. When can stories mean truth and why over other stories?

3. How can I use this knowledge learned in the course towards a normal application of science?
