Picture, if you can, the nerd sirens going off.
I know it’s not just me, but sometimes I love learning new things just because I can.
[And sometimes I like sitting on the couch watching Mork and Mindy reruns. Go figure. I miss Robin Williams.]
I was an English major in college and studied law after. I’ve had to learn a lot of things for articles and stories I write. I’ve researched Japanese mythology and off-the-grid-end-of-the-world bunkers and near-death experiences and ancient Aramaic writing and free solo climbing.
Just for fun, I’m learning Italian, and I’ve taken up crocheting useless projects.
But I’ll clue you in to my funny little secret: I [heart] particle physics and astronomy. Neil DeGrasse Tyson is my current obsession. I can spend hours classifying galaxies or identifying particles on GalaxyZoo.
So many new things to learn. It’s a wonder I ever find time to work.
