you don't often see this more optimistic side of self-reflection, and that's too bad. i will encourage it:
there is much i would change about myself, but amidst the changes i'd like to hang onto my passion for learning. truthfully, it'd be better described as a love of grokking, but not everybody's read Heinlein, so "learning" will have to suffice. learning is at the heart of what life is about for me, and i wouldn't trade it.
(friends: i'm curious what your answers to this question would be! reply to this post, or to the question on the homepage!)
