Let's learn stuff for free!

I've recently discovered a website wherein you can learn a wide variety of topics from prominent universities--e.g. Harvard, MIT, etc.--for free. If you've never seen edX* before, now is the time to do it. Unless you've got better, more important things to do.

In the holiday this January, I was glad to "attend" a Harvard Law class about contracts. It was in no way a "professional" course, but very much informative and enjoyable. I am highly interested in the computer science-related courses that are offered in the site.

OK. No more jabber. Go check it out. Please. Thank you.






*There are other similar websites; but this one strikes me as the best of them.

Distraction

This is a very critical time in my (academic) life. I have less than two months to study the whole caboodle of dental disciplines. I am in no way prepared; except psychologically. Well, maybe.

I am very eager to finish my education and move on with life. I really want to become a productive member of society; and at the same time, having never worked before in my entire life, I'm terrified of the prospect. Not to mention that I am still not sure what I'm going to do later on. I can't answer the very cliché question of "where do you see yourself in ten years?" with certainty.

At times like this, your mind seems to try hard to escape reality. My interest in everything is heightened now. The mere existence of the internet--with all the games, movies, shows, and even educational content--is a hurdle to everyone trying to get something done with their life. I am cutting down on the internet--after all, I was a bit of an addict a while back--but I need to control myself even more.

Writing this very post is an indication that I'm not using my time efficiently!
