I haven’t been on here for a while (busy finishing up a few long term projects and studying for a horde of ap exams)… but I’m back!
I’ve decided two things:
1. I’m going to put the national park project on the side for a few months (I dread being on tumblr because of the accompanying guilt I feel for abandoning it) So I publicly state that Yes, I will come back to them, but for now I have more interesting topics to pursuit)…..which brings me to my other decision..
2. I know Wikipedia remains a source of controversy (literally); many teachers do not recognize it as a reliable source for research papers because anyone can edit most pages on Wiki. However, the website has many editors and false information is corrected quickly, also, a 2007 study at Dartmouth College noted that, contrary to usual social expectations, anonymous editors were some of Wikipedia’s most productive contributors of valid content. And personally, I love Wikipedia; it’s clean, efficient and virtually unlimited.. and so recently, as I’ve been finding myself more and more restless and uninspired (with age?), I’ve been turning to the ever-blossoming wonder of Wikipedia. Recently, I’ve found myself reading page after page of article.. to that end, I present a challenge to all of you: Read (at least) one article on Wikipedia a day. Oh how all of your brains will grow! Knowledge is power people, so educate yourself.
