I found a great word today that I’ve been searching for for a while: autodidact. It means, according to the all-powerful book of word definitions:
Autodidacticism (also autodidactism) is self-education or self-directed learning. An autodidact is a mostly self-taught person (also known as an automath), or someone who has an enthusiasm for self-education, and usually has a high degree of self-motivation. Occasionally, individuals have sought to excel in subjects from outside the mainstream of conventional education.
Muahaha. It’s a pretty cool coincidence that that’s basically me. If I had one word to describe my learning style, it would definitely be carrot. Or as a second choice, autodidact. Heh. I made a funny.
