Everything in moderation

So this morning I woke up thinking about my future, with drool dripping down my face. Where am I going to be 5 years from now? 10 years? These are questions that I think I should not avoid, because what I do today affects what I will become. Today I thought about universities, and what I was want to pursue in my life. Med school seems like a very likely possibility, although I honestly wouldn't mind going to MIT to study anything there. There are so many things that I want to do, but am I capable of doing it all? It seems that much of my time is wasted doing absolutely nothing, and I aim to become more productive. Here are some general guidelines I have set:
  1. Learn to play an instrument
  2. Read more books
  3. Write more
  4. Take up a new hobby
  5. Stay in shape
So far I think these 4 rules shall suffice for now.
Without a goal in mind, I think that aimlessly wandering will get me no where.

Also I've been thinking about other things to take up my time, things that will also require the usage of my brain. I might decide to learn the basics of card counting, and perhaps just play around with it as a hobby. Statistical numbers always seem to amazing me, and math seems to answer a lot of things. Basic math can go a long way, and even then graphs make up a lot in this world that we live in. Every person should be able to understand graphs, and easily extrapolate data from them. Graphs serve as a basis of expressing large sets of data into a easily viewable picture. I think it is our intent to be able to understand the simple things, because from simple things arise the complex ideas.
