Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
-an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.
We all have them. Those ideas/objects/people that take up large chunks of our time and thought. For some people it’s cats, others love celebrities, and some can’t stop thinking about food. Obsessions can start off as a simple hobby but easily spiral into a sort of focused mania that shoves aside everything else. So tell me, what is it that fixates you? What is it that constantly needles you from the back of your brain? What can you not live without?
