It's official. I am a nerd. [academic earth]

OKAY SO!!! We all know that I am a complete nut about anything science-y… or really learning anything for that matter [ if it interests me ]. I wanted to share this website I found that has thousands of thousands of FREE [yes, free! something that is hard to find these days] partial/full lectures for classes.

Go forth and click this link- Academic Earth

So you can pick your subject (chemistry for instance) pick a class under that [if it's been recorded and available] and watch all the lectures from the semester. That’s free learning. And it will definitely better my science writing [though not my regular writing, because clearly I just started this sentence with the word 'and'] as well as give me lectures to watch so I can add to my infinite little book of knowledge I”m writing in my head. I also know that my best friend G. Tsao will be stalking this [Hi jenna!] and she will also be enamoured by this amazing website as well. SO JENNA! GO HERE!

I also wanted to throw in there that these are lectures from Harvard, Yale etc… so you know it’s good.I honestly feel like a complete dork admitting that this excites me, but what can I say.. constant learning and a thirst for knowledge open up many, many doors… and also keeps my brain from jumping through hoops in my head.

    ::STALK:: and, OMG!

    This thing is amazing!!

    Lol, I have to admit though when I went into my Email this morning your message made me laugh. It’s like “OPEN BEFORE WORK!” … now usually my Email is not so demanding, but still I was curious so I opened, and I’m glad I did cause this thing is wicked cool.

    Now you may very well be a nerd… but if YOU are, then I most certainly am too… so I’m going to go ahead and say that that’s not the case. Instead I think we are more like sleeper cells. Outwardly, we appear quite normal and sometimes even “cool” (I said “sometimes” … let’s not get carried away), but then one day we can just ninja people with knowledge. And they are like “*gasp* it can not be! they have such nice shoes! and hair! and are kind of ditzy! and I swear that once the spanish one told me there were oceans in canada!” … but yes, it happened, we dropped “smart” on them, because we are ninjas. And ninjas, are not nerdy.

    But meanwhile, the lectures, very cool, and interesting! AND free! Because I dunno if you knew, but I love free things! And these free things make my brain happy. And it doesn’t get much better than that. So thank you! You rock. The end. <3

    … just wanted to reiterate … this website is awesome, there is like SO MUCH stuff on here, lol. I am like a very dorky kid in a candy store.

    THERE ARE WHOLE SEMESTERS WORTH OF LECTURES ON PHYSICS FROM YALE PROFESSORS!

    It is like the best cheapest education I’ve ever gotten… and who ever thought THOSE two things would come together. lol.
