355. Take a course at Harvard
Updated February 10, 2009
I was the nerdy girl in high school – the one who actually studied during study hall, and probably all through lunch too. The one who always had her homework done. The one who always got an A on the test. That’s what I was there for – to learn. But it made me somewhat of an outcast and I looked forward to going to college, where I hoped that everyone would be passionate about learning as much as possible just like me.
That didn’t happen. I got to college and was still the outcast who attended class almost everyday, studied hard, and did her homework. It was really disappointing.
So I’d like to go and take a course at Harvard – just to see what it’s like. To see if it’s the environment of learning that I’ve always imagined it would be.
