About Me

Me at the Thomas Cooper Library at USC. Circa 2011

Hey everyone, my name is Isaiah Dix and I’m a lover of many things.

I started blogging back in 2011 for an assignment in an Islamic studies class during my sophomore year of college. Eventually, that experience would grow out of equal parts desperation, courage, and future insight to become what I have today: The Fire.


Some of the topics I like to routinely discuss on this site are as follows:

  • Sustainability
  • Environmental Protection
  • Space and Interstellar Interests
  • Wisdom/Self Help
  • Evolution
  • Biology/Ecology

My love for science didn’t start at an early age. I was nowhere near a child prodigy and I believe my past self would be thoroughly bewildered at the person I am today. I was a relatively bad student in grade school and always thought I would be at the height of success in life if I were some kind of scientist, or, lord willing, had a doctorate because of my shotty grades. I trudged on throughout my early life not enjoying school and feeling inferior because of my academic performance, which may have played a part in the relationships I developed as a kid and self-esteem. As time went on, however, and I grew as an independent thinker and person I began to discover and cultivate strengths and passion I never quite knew I had. With these passions and strong desire, opportunities came into my life that has helped me become who I am today.

Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you gain something from my words here on The Fire.
