My unversity schooling is not yet finished, but I enjoy pursuits that leave me with some future benefit (be it knowledge or skill) in addition to ones that just pass time. My main interest is about the mind; I took an introductory psych course a little while back that got me interested.... I like learning the why's and how's of the ways people act and think.

I feel more and more that the line from "Good Will Hunting" about getting an education for a $1.75 in late fees at the public library is true. I don't mind paying to study with smart profs, but I don't really need anyone to tell me what to read any more. The idea of selecting books or having to read "classics" is simply beyond its time.

"I feel more and more that the line from "Good Will Hunting" about getting an education for a $1.75 in late fees at the public library is true." The resources contained for free online are absolutely insane. It's definitely possible to learn a great deal on the Internet and in libraries, but college teaches you other things that can't be found in books. Working with difficult people, meeting deadlines, fulfilling commitments, etc.
