Exams Are Over…

Why am I not happy? Maybe it’s because I’m exhausted. Maybe it’s because my finals were ALL hard. Maybe it’s because I don’t feel like I did my best. Maybe it’s because I don’t feel like I thoroughly and convincingly understand everything that I should know.

On the other hand, I can write some basic programs. I could teach my 12 year old niece some math, I think. I can, statistically, arrive at some general conclusions about a population or a sample. I know now that the future is going to be about software, wireless connections, and huge amounts of data storage.

Has my education increased my potential earnings power? Don’t think so.

Am I accumulating a body of knowledge that will increase my potential earnings power?

Believe so……

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
