I have a really severe tendency to over-glorify the act of gaining knowledge.
I'm not sure how female SEIs relate to this, but I LOVE programming, everything about it, the theory, actually writing something (except actually working with a gui framework, that pissed me off.) I love reading about for loops, output statements, file input/output, all of it. I have collected 3 Java books, 2 pascal books, and a C book. I sat down last night and got so excited that I'm going to look at all them over the summer and just bask in all the code and loveliness.
Today I wanted to look into basic Ruby syntax, but I've got this glorified idea of the act of learning that I am actually scared to do it in real life, because I am afraid it won't be as fun irl than in my mind.
Last night my LII father told me that he'd teach me pre-calc during the summer. The idea of learning something out of school made me so excited that I went around the house declaring "MATH IS POWER." to all I saw.
Pre-calc is exciting?
What I am trying to say is that I think all SEIs love learning so much that we glorify the act in our minds, and then when it gets a little boring we get all sad and thinking we're faulty because it's supposed to be fun 24/7.
anyone have anything to add to this?
