I Love Learning

I love to learn and be challenged. Growing up, I was probably always that girl in class with her hand waving in the air, because I knew the answer. Truthfully, things haven't changed much around here. After I graduated from college with my bachelors degree, I was so happy because I thought I would be done with school forever. The papers, the studying, it starts to wear on you after 21 years straight of it.

Fast forward three years, and here I am again, textbook in hand, working on my Master's degree. A little break from school was wonderful, and showed me that I love to learn. So much so that I'm sharing a few of my favorite math jokes with you. I may or may not have had a super cool calculus t-shirt in high school. And as I'm looking online at calculus t-shirts trying to find it, I want all of them. Nerd.

Right now, I'm taking a little break and procrastinating my studying. Why? Because it's what I always do. I work better on a deadline. It works for me though. So far, in my course, I have 99.48%. At first, the course I'm taking- International Entrepreneurship- was really easy. Which is why I have decided to make it more challenging for myself. A lot of what we do is analyzing entrepreneurial situations, and what a business or company should do. I am purposefully picking the more difficult situations now, and arguing my way through them. The paper I'm working on right now deals with looking at one aspect of Porter's diamond, and our own entrepreneurial venture. I could talk about the factor endowments (easy) or I could talk about the demand condition (more difficult). And here I go again, on a tangent nobody but myself will care about…because I love learning and talking about it!

Even without working towards a degree, you can always be learning. Reading everything- the newspaper, books, magazines- contributes towards your learning. New languages. New experiences and people. It is simply a conscious (or for us nerds, unconscious) effort of absorbing information around you and applying it to your own situations and experiences.

That's it for today, as I will head back to my studying! Hope you all enjoyed my nerd jokes- if you have any of your own, feel free to share!
