- Over the last number of years I have attempted to
educate myself as I feel I was too
young to enjoy learning in school. I have been reading
history , science , philosophy ,theology and more
..scouring the encyclopedia miscellaneously .. Started
reading classics , have been reading the great books
and the great books courses. Have been listening to
audio books .and lecture courses ..and watching educational
dvds. I have and intend to see more museums. There
are online classes which I will ultimately list for
you in a dedicated page.
believe that as an American in the 21st century blessed
with an ease of survival , and enough leisure to look
outward at the world , I would be remiss If I didn`t
attempt to examine life , seek knowledge of this world
, past and present. As socrates said , an unexamined
life is not worth living.
Great Courses - Philosophy & Intellectual History

2nd Edition - Part 1 and Part 2 by The
rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Teaching Company Audio CD`s as well as Modern
Scholar series are highly reccomended learning tools
- College level courses that you can learn from in
This is part of the mixed media I use in my pursuit
of knowledge. I love music and on the weekends my
car primarily blasts music from XM - but during the
week , the 45 min - 1 hour a day I spend in the car
going to and from work and misc errands , I have these
Audio Books that I get from libraries.
Sometimes I get lazy with reading the non-fiction
I am trying to consume. These courses make it so I
am always thinking , always stimulating my mind.
As soon as I hop in the car in the AM , I`m forced
to use that most important muscle. This is the glue
to my self-education.
all my reviews.
have this idea of creating a personal web page that
might make sense to like minds of men and women in
our age group 21-39. My little life might even be
interesting to those that can understand me. My interests
may be similar and outlook not far from yours. I would
expect parents of gen-xers to be able to find humor
or understanding in anything they might find on my
site. This site will be meager to start but I have
great plans ( yeah yeah Kevin) I hope you will come
back often to see Whats going on . Feel free to drop
me a line to say hi , feedback , add a story or link
, or tell me to #%#@ off!!!
Kevin - So , who is this guy? He`s been described
as fun, witty , intense , and intelligent wether any
of this is true or not remains to be seen. Form your
own opinion. Well he still likes to party on occasion
and will tend to drift into the bar club scene when
in leisure time but for the most part am focused on
work , my girl-friend , (whoops Fiance - person) ,
my new car (Subaru WRX 227 HP Turbo Engine (oh yeah
!) , still tryin` to keep in touch with my Long Island
boys and girls, as well as my new connecticut friends
all of who are very dear to me despite my lapse in
constant communication. I do try .
He`s 31 years old and very aware of it , the fact
he still looks 20 might be why he slips back so often
, either that or he just missed being young and carefree
and still tries to be. He has become responsible to
a point and hasn`t done too bad for himself and would
be considered doing well amongst his friends and peers.
He has strong opinions yet rarely practices what he
I have many interests and have been told , "Kev,
you seem to be good at everything" , "Yeah
,yeah , but i`m great at nothing."
I am a dabbler , i`m focused yet lazy, have superior
drive yet can fall into fits of melancholy and barely
can drive to work. I`m witty yet morose , like to
be the life of the party or simply want to leave it.
This probably describes half the world , but this
site is about ME ME ME > Over time you will see
some really good links on these sites to other worthwhile
pages. I won`t be simply slapping it together so take
my recco`s seriously. Some of my interests are skiing,
surfing, shooting pool, ping-pong, basketball , football
,baseball - playin` it watching it though its pretty
rare I play anything these days, I drag ass to the
gym on occassion , I play tennis once a year , interested
in business , finance , sports , making money , rambling
on and on `bout this and that. ... oh look thats what
I`m doing now. I`m going to end this lil intro as
it is extremely amateur , will need to update soon
, but anyway "nice to meet me" and hope
its nice to meet you to , please say Howdy
<<<Everyone has a point of
view of oneself. Any friends or family with something
they might like to say about ME :-) good ,bad or indifferent
, Tell the world who Kevin really is to them.... feel
free to email me and I`ll put it on the site>>
P.S - Even though this is my vanity
page I promise not to edit out the dirty secrets you
might rat me out on --- :-)
