That’s right. I’m on a mission. A mission to enrich my life.
Since having to leave college, I feel so disconnected from the world. I always enjoyed learning, hearing new things, forming opinions, etc. I learned so much in college, in just that one year, including important lessons in critical thinking. But then I left college because I could afford it. And then I started to feel it.
I wasn’t getting stimulation. Thanks to Tumblr, I kept a little line to interesting things, but it isn’t enough. I feel like I have do much to research and see, but I’m not actually doing it.
So now, I’m going to give a mission statement of sorts:
I want to include in my life more science, more politics, more reading, more research, more writing, more learning. I want to read and hear more to keep my brain functioning. I need things to think about.
Luckily, the internet can be good for this. I have a lot of material to read, and YouTube even has a lot of informational videos. I’ve already started subscribing to some great channels, especially ones with videos like TEDtalks (which I really enjoy!).
Besides just putting this all out there, I’m also asking for a little help. So to you, dear Tumblrverse inhabitants, I ask for suggestions. Do you know of any great channels on YouTube I could follow? Do you have a favorite website for enriching discussion and articles? Please, don’t hesitate to send me links (or names of websites in asks since you can’t do links). I would really appreciate it.
Now, off to get my learnin’ on.
P.S. If you’re seeing this in a tag feed and are wondering why it’s tagged with something that might seem irrelevant, it’s probably because it’s a tag of something I would like to “add” to my life. In other words, it’s a topic that interests me and therefore something I’d like to continue learning/reading about.
