I'm saying that what we are expected to know isn't always what we want to know. And my own needs are most important to me. For me, the proper path would have been to stick with something like psychology, mathematics or physics, or later on art history or philosophy, or finally even gender studies, and to have made a career out of that. Instead I went where my intellect and tastes steered me, not dwelling on the specifics of a field after I had achieved a satisfactory comprehension of the broad strokes. Academically speaking, my intellect and tastes ultimately lead me to discard the whole concept and go off to get some life experience (after a brief affair with an office career). Now I realize that the moment itself is most important and I simply live, a scavenging idler.
It's always a shame to see people get stuck in the systemic whirlpool and I try to plant a seed of doubt whenever I can.
