My Name is Colton Kirby and this is my blog which is the #1 Academic and Intellectual student blog on the Internet. My writings concern Theology, Philosophy, Psychology by displaying the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. I am 16 years old; at this blog, I publish essays and articles on interesting topics that further the Great Conversation and all the Arts and Sciences. I am here for the thinkers, discoverers, creators, seekers, and for all who wish to promote a free-thinking society.
I started this blog in 2020 as a way to share my academic essays with a broader community of individuals. Most of my writings are going to be on works of literature; however, in the future, I will be posting more "articles" as well as essays. The difference between the two is that an article is what would be considered a typical blog post, whereas an essay is going to be a longer writing which is written in academic form.
I am currently homeschooled and in my Junior year of high school. Academically speaking, I am oriented toward a Classical form of education. I plan on attending college and getting a degree in Liberal Arts. Although I am not sure which career I would choose at this point, I do know that I want to cultivate knowledge, understanding, and wisdom in myself and others. I live with my father, mother, and six siblings, of which I am the eldest. My father manages a working cattle ranch, which I have the opportunity to gain employment during the summers with the position of Head Irrigational Operations. I also play competitive basketball--a thing which I greatly enjoy.
Feel free to contact me anytime and share this site with your friends and family. I will be adding essays every 1-2 weeks; I hope that you will find some of the content on my site to be meaningful to you.
