Something I wish someone had told me earlier: specialization, choosing a major, having one particular area of interest… all these things don’t narrow your options, but expand them. It sure doesn’t seem that way from the outside. But, speaking in the context of majoring in a topic, announcing your dedication and love for one field throws that field wide open for you.
If you love learning about more than one thing, then you can obviously learn about more than one thing. The more you learn the better, and you can make extraordinary connections between your fields. But specializing allows you to really devote yourself to the lifelong attempt to understand what you love.
Specialization is learning in a vertical direction instead of a horizontal one. So don’t be afraid to dive into the ocean of information. There’s so much more to it than the surface.
Bucky says, “Do you know, after you leave – every time you leave, after the doctors have taken my mask off, I walk around this place and try to find everywhere you’ve been. Was your hand on the toaster? Did you lean against the doorway? Where were you on the couch? I haven’t seen your face in seventy-five years, not really.”
Sam and Steve have tracked the Winter Soldier back to New York, but they have to put their search on hold when a wizard starts robbing banks on Broadway. During the fight, Steve gets hit with a spell that separates him from the rest of the Avengers, leaves him 10 inches shorter, 145 pounds lighter, and convinced the year’s still 1943.
And of course once Steve’s forgotten about him, he runs into the Winter Soldier.
