I just started reading a book called The Know-It-All - One Man's Humble Quest to Become the Smartest Person in the World. It is hilarious and so interesting. Although I've only read a couple of chapters, I'm hooked. The book is about a guy that decides to read his entire set of Encyclopedia of Britannicas. In doing so, he hopes his brain will be overflowing in knowledge. [on a side note - when I was little, I thought Britannica was a place and I wanted to go there]. Needless to say...I want to follow his lead.

Life is a vicious cycle. When we're young, we want to be older. When we're in high school, we can't wait to get to college. And towards the end of college, we're typically burnt out on the learning process. Now that I've been out in the "real world" for two years, constantly searching for work, I would give anything to start all over. I actually miss being in the classroom, having assignments, etc. All those equations, history lessons, and formulas fly out the window after a few years and I find myself constantly wanting to re-learn what I've forgotten.
