thank you for giving me words for this.
i think this is why college bored me so much (with the exception of a few classes/profs). it didn't live up to my expectations of seeking actual knowledge & truth (something i'd been told to expect).
but at least it did make me hungry for it & gave me the tools to pursue it.
