A good reason to never stop learning

  1. Thanks!

  2. I don’t know what it was, but after college I got bitten by the learners bug and never got over it. Just too bad I didn’t have it when I was in school.

    I just can’t get over wanting to know everything about the world we live in. And whenever I don’t understand something, it makes me mad, so I read everything on the subject that I can.

    Anyway, I bookmarked this blog, so I’ll be checking it out. :)

    I totally agree, Mark! My biggest problem is that there’s a certain point where I have to stop getting distracted by new information (it can really be overwhelming if you try to absorb everything you can) and start creating new things. The quest for comprehension is really great, but I have to keep reminding myself that it only means something if I can eventually DO something with it (or at the very least, share my understanding with others by compiling and writing it down, or some other method).

    By the way, I recommend subscribing to this blog (and others) using a feed reader like Google Reader or something, rather than bookmarking it–it’s really a lot more efficient :)
