I want to go back to high school.
No, not to tell off all the people that made fun of me.
I want to go back to high school because I want to learn the things I should have learned while I was there.
Allow me to explain...
Paul and I have been watching Jeopardy. It's a great way to learn new material, but it is also a great reminder of all the things you should have learned/remembered from high school.
So many times there will be an answer where I think to myself, "I remember learning about that in high school, but I never actually learned it." It didn't interest me back then. Now? Well now, I am interested!
I'm curious about things I simply wasn't curious about when I was a teenager. There's so much I want to know! I want to read some classic literature. I want to learn French better. I want to understand math.
What I need to do is keep a pen and paper with me while I'm watching Jeopardy and jot things down I want to learn more about. Because by the end of the episode, I can't even remember what it was that interested me.
Are there things from high school you wish you remembered?
Are you more curious now than you were when you were younger?
