“In the end, the secret to learning is so simple: forget about it. Think only about whatever you love. Follow it, do it, dream about it. One day, you will glance up at your collection of Japanese literature, or trip over the solar oven you built, and it will hit you: learning was there all the time, happening by itself.” – Grace Llewellyn
As students at an uber competitive college, we are always on the lookout for internships, preferably those which allow us to combine our love for learning and writing. One fine day, we had an earth shattering, life changing epiphany, as is the case with most brilliant ideas (okay, so maybe not the MOST brilliant but close enough). Why look for OTHER blogs that would publish our articles? Why not (co)create one and publish write ups ourselves?
Despite what we might try to convince you of, our (feeble?) effort is fundamentally an overambitious group project to learn and write about as many things as we possibly can. Each of us brought to the table, a few topics that we wish learn about and we’ll be covering them in the following months.
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school. It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education. ” – Albert Einstein
Most of the learning happens outside the classroom (at least for us ‘cool’ backbenchers, including Mr. Einstein there ^.^). Creating and maintaining a blog brings us a step closer to being more informed about the goings on in the world. And maybe a little feedback on our writing skills.
We live in a world where we are constantly flooded by facts (disjointed, for those of us who don’t know the backstory). This blog is our attempt to simplify the hyped and overcomplicated topics, break them down into understandable chunks and create a narrative to explain them in an easy manner. (We really hope we didn’t overpromise there.)
Learning is never ending. Despite our best efforts, we’d only be able to cover a small part of all the knowledge the world has to offer. We hope the process of keeping a blog is transformative and wish to find gold at the end of the proverbial rainbow. Hereon, we embark on an alchemical journey to learn and grow.
