    Oh - But I Do Try

    I love studying, reading, and just learning anything -- OK except anything mechanical/techy -- some of that is just over my head. But when I do something that is worth doing, I really want to study up on it and do it right.   I am so f*ing bored...

    Admitting You Know Very Little Is The Beginning Of Wisdom

    Admitting you know very little is supposedly the beginning of wisdom, or so I've heard. I've also heard, "The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know." That's the case with me. I am fascinated by almost everything I come across, and I enjoy learning about things. I do...
