I’ve done nearly 300 posts in 5 years, but I haven’t blogged anything of my own in nearly a year and a half. That being said, this TEDtalk is so on point that it might be the last post I make. Nearly all my content summed up in one TEDtalk 5 years later haha. Enjoy!

“It feels like they’re trying to make you memorize the whole Encyclopedia before they let you go out and play.
