Shane Dodge. Currently on a journey to develop a sense of self-worth through my studies at SLCC. There’s nothing I love more than the feel of the warm sun on my skin and the cold chill of Pacific water engulfing my body. One day I will explore the many entities and wonders this world has to offer. Epicurian philosophy; while the pursuit of pleasure is key to happiness, to truly achieve it you must differ between the two forms of happiness; natural and vain, natural being what is necessary and vain being what is unnecessary, and vain necessities only brings false joys that ultimately only bring forth even more.
