In a library I am sitting, trying to do the learning whilst typing away due to reasons.
Right now, I’m sure it’s a sunny day outside and I’d probably benefit from getting a little bit more sun than usual, but the learning must be done so that responsibility can be upheld.
It’s seldom for better grades, but that’s the way I like it.
I don’t want to learn forever.
Actually, that’s a lie. I’d like to learn forever and, if not, for as long as I possibly can.
There’s always room for learning in someone’s life, because there are so many things to know about and, more often than not, they are fascinating.
However, even the things that one does not find fascinating, or even interesting (and even the things that don’t like) should probably have a bit of time invested into them so that at least then there’s some information you know.
Otherwise, how do you know that you’re not into them?
There’s so much learning always going on in the world and it’s always important to keep learning in order to grow and become better people.
The moment the mind closes off to new things is the moment you decide to stifle your growth.
There may be times that you’d have to close off for a short period, but otherwise you should always remain as open as possible.
Apart from knowing things, increasing the amount of skills you have is always something that I think is greatly undervalued (especially when it comes to things like repair skills and first aid), simply because being able to know things that allow you to act a lot faster than always being forced into a position of reliance is a better thing to have under your belt than not.
There are plenty of other things as well that people can learn about that may be important, such as language use… and (maybe) the arts.
There’s also the world outside of technology and the cities, and not just the continued tourist stuff that should really be known about, even if it’s something that you do not like at all, simply because it is also significantly important (easily just as, if not more important than technology), because it’s a world that can provide so much more when it comes to beauty and awe than anything that people have created.
I think it will be a long time before people can match what nature can provide to our experiences, if it ever indeed happens.
For example, I think it’s amazing that we are on a planet that gets to experience the sunrise and sunset every day and be living at a time where it’s unlikely that the sun will go supernova.
Crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and seeing it is nice, but after one thousand times, it does start to lose some of its magic.
Probably closer to one hundred times.
Still, I could be proven wrong, and, to be honest, with that I’m fine.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:56:08
This is something that could probably be fleshed out with a few thousand more words, but for now, this will suffice.
Written at university.
