I have a lot of opinions but am willing to change them when confronted with fresh facts. As the American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said in his essay on self-reliance: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today.”

Feel free to correct me when I say something wrong. You can reach me at iggy_fernandez@hotmail.com or you can leave a note for me below.
