Well, I have two "craft" projects going on right now and it occurred to me that other people might like the results of what I'm doing and would want to know how to achieve the same. That got me thinking... why not just share what I learn?
Going back even further, I'm one of those types of people who has always been interested in everything. Absolutely everything. I remember asking my dad when I was younger if flies sleep. The thought occurred to me as I watched a fly buzz around our dining room table (and no, this doesn't usually happen). How about majoring in French and Art and then electing to attend a seminar about photosynthetic solar cell research as part of my graduation-week programming?
It's rare for me to walk out of a movie and not want to get involved with whatever the movie was about. How cool would it have been just to be in the studio when they were recording the score for Lord of the Rings? I remember playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and wanting to learn Russian because some of the characters in the game were Russian. I want to learn how to work on cars, get my pilots license, go to space, learn wilderness survival skills... I want to start companies, design websites, and meet influential people. Even the research my friends are doing by testing tension-resistance for artificial heart tissue is interesting.
Sure, there are some things that are just inherently not that intriguing to me. I can't actually think of any off the top of my head, but I know they exist. I'll try to list a few when they come to me.
Anyway, there's so much to know out there and it's all fascinating! So thank you for taking a moment to read my blog. I hope it can be of some use to you, and like I've said before, if you have a comment or an idea to share about something I've written, please post it in the "Comments" section below!
