Scotty Rushing is a writer and full-time student at the Florida Institute of Technology where he is pursuing a degree in Applied Psychology. Scotty lives in Louisiana on a 60-acre farm with his partner, Sharon. They share their home with a variety of animal companions including horses, dogs, and cats. Many of their pets are rescues.
These words from Henry David Thoreau express one of Scotty’s most important beliefs:
“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.”
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little acre of the Cloud. I hope you will find something that interests and is useful to you. My blog, Conscious Endeavor, is an eclectic mix of subject matter. I write about anything that turns me on, really, so always bear in mind that the opinions expressed here are mine and do not necessarily reflect those of the Florida Institute of Technology, Psi Chi, or any other organization I am affiliated with. Comments are enabled on my blog posts and I encourage you to add your own thoughts to ongoing discussions with one small caveat: please do so respectfully. Conscious Endeavor is firmly situated in an anti-bullying zone.
While kept to a bare minimum, there is some advertising on this site. You’ll see an occasional banner ad for Amazon or NewKadia (an awesome place to buy comic books). I make an effort to only include advertising for things I use or enjoy.
I am always interested in hearing from my readers, fellow psych majors and other college students, or anyone who feels the need to give me a shout. In most cases I will get back to you within a few hours, but realize that it may take longer if I am occupied with work, finals, or other tasks. Just know that your emails are important to me and that I read and reply to them promptly.
