    I really do. I love learning new things,

    BUT only if they interest me ._. Right now I am learning about the american history and the political system and I find it part interesting and part boring. I hate it when I MUST lern something just because it is strictly ordered.

    Learning lessons is a little like reaching

    maturity. You're not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you're at peace with yourself. Learning life's lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be.
