this was awesome! i remember learning most of this stuff, too, and i definitely had the same reaction... i never fully appreciated what i had learned until years later. but i feel like that's the way everything works in life, not just in school.

Simply beautiful. I too completely regret thinking science was boring in school. B/c now I often wonder things like, "Why IS the sky blue?" or "How does....work?" and then I think, "Oh man! I probably learned that in elementary school! Why didn't I pay attention!?" Ever think we should actually all be doing elementary school when we're adults?

suzy said...

jen: i think i'd absolutely like to retake some of my elementary school classes now. we should go back together. i'd need to buy a new backpack.
