ANCES MULLES: How We Learn →
ancesmulles: Sucks how the grading system compromises our ability to fully learn. How we choose subjects or professors because it’s easier or gives better grades rather than the interest to learn.

Some writers drink. Some writers smoke. Some writers stand on their heads. Some writers stay on their beds. Some writers inhale rotten apples, just so...

Prior to UPFI I don’t know nor have ever met another person who pulls their hair out just for the sheer satisfaction of it. Funny how in UPFI I met three other people who share the symptom with me – two of them I found out when I told them my scriptwriting concept – although...
