learning is growing.

I love to learn. And I don't use the term love loosely here. I really do love to learn. I think a lot of it stems from my desire to constantly belittle people with my huge brain against their little baby brains, but hey-- we all have our faults. 

I can vaguely remember things I learned in high school. I bet I can recount everything right here: cash is always a credit, how to play games on a TI-83, zone defenses are for lazy basketball teams and STDs are the gift that keep on giving. 

And there you have it. That is all I can remember from high school. Literally. I just racked my brain.  I don't think college was much better: I re-learned about cash in accounting, Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (personal fave), the difference between a waxing and waning moon, how to use Photoshop and InDesign and of course, millions of Spanish words. 

Looking back at that, I'm feeling much better about my college education. Like, I actually gained something from it besides weight and a friends list two miles long. 

Anyway. Even though I feel exponentially smarter just recounting everything I learned in four years of college I feel like I've learned way more from the internetS and reality television than I ever did in college or high school. 

I would like to share those things (these are mainly from reality tv) now:
  • Little people can do normal things.
  • You can be famous for doing absolutely nothing.
  • A messy house reflects poorly on your marriage.
  • If you constantly yell at your husband in front of the camera eventually tabloids will accuse your husband of adultery. 
  • If you work out for 6 hours a day and have a personal trainer and eat right, you can lose hundreds of pounds.
  • You don't have to be married or have children to be a housewife-- I think that is an incredible amount of knowledge, because for so long now I honestly thought you HAD to be a wife to be a housewife! WRONG-O!
  • Tyra Banks is smarter and prettier than everyone alive. Ever.
  • Seven people can be strangers, move in together and fight just like they've been friends forever. Good to know. I figured only roommates that were friends could fight.

I know that I've learned more than that, but I want others to learn on their own.
