Forget everything you think you know about me.

You can keep your negative comments to yourself, for this blog, if you think of any.

But. I just realized why I am in school. That is to learn. For some reason, tonight, on December 8th, 2008 at exactly 10:46 PM, I realized that I go to school to actually learn. I have been getting by wit incomplete assignments and turned in work that I half-assed, if not less. There are smart people in our class, and I always envied them, when I could be one of them. If I actually studied and actually tried to learn, and realized the interest I took in the subject, perhaps more knowledge would stick in my head.

I want to learn.

Education is founded upon concepts not evaluated digits. It's good you understand this this early in the "race." (Not necessarily a competition) A good number of my classmates still haven't caught on. They're able to reproduce formulas and thoughts but they can't apply it beyond what they've been taught to do.

it's good to realize this BEFORE you're out there in the real world and you realize how much easier it would've been if you had in fact learned...take it as a learning experience (no pun intended) and grow from it. :)

What bothers me is that a lot of these people you envy cheat.

And that we can't learn what we crave to know; rather, we're pushed into a neatly circled-off area of knowledge.

I want to know what Earth's made of, and about Pompeii, and how a house is built.

THAT is why I'm never motivated to "learn." What we're doing in school...that's mechanically storing facts and knowledge.

I'll never, ever envy them. Not one.

I figured this out a while ago, but sometimes you forget it after going to school day after day and putting away information that will never be relevant to your life...

I was always one of those envy inducing smart ppl. I was rather studious.
