Things I want to Learn
Recently, I've become overwhelmed with my sheer desire to learn things. So, I thought, "what a better way to hold myself accountable while also sharing what I learn with everyone than to blog about it?"
I feel very lucky, though, because I have the privilege and ability to spend my free time doing the things that I love, learning new subjects, and exploring my interests; it's a luxury that is becoming more and more rare.
What I want to Learn
Well, here's the list:
- Computer networking
- Electronic Circuits
- Data Science
- Machine Learning
- Artificial Intelligence
- Distributed Computing
- Computer Graphics
- Federated Applications & Services
- Matrix communication protocol and how it works
- Music Production
- Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
- Mechanical Design
- How to Singe
- How to be more creative
- Rust programming
- Systems programming
- How to do research
- How to draw
- Computational Biology
A lot of these topics & subjects I already have a (very) high level understanding of. For example, I currently work in the IoT industry, so while I do have "Computer Networking" on that list, I do want to learn much, much more on the topic. I also have a degree in Petroleum Engineering and had to take 2 years (4 semesters) of Physics courses, but I want to revisit the basic topics as well as dive into the more complex sub-fields.
Why I want to study these things
The simplest answer is: because I want to.
The longer answer is that I am just genuinely interested in these topics (and I'm sure that as I dig into these subjects and topics, I will uncover new things I want to learn about). But, it does go a bit deeper than that. I believe that we live in the best time for the distribution and access to human knowledge. The internet is such a beautiful place for gathering and consuming information, how could I just dismiss this opportunity?
How I will learn these things
I am dedicating 2 hours every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to gathering, consuming, and learning about one of those topics at a time.
How will I determine how long I will spend on a topic? Well, I'm not going give myself a time frame for when to start and stop a subject. I will simply let my curiosity and interest guide (that sounds posh).
I've also added a new line to the top of my homepage that tells you what subject I'm working on now.
One thing I also plan on doing is to add tags to my blog posts and a search feature that allows readers to search my content.
Until next time, stay curious...
