1) I want to revamp the entire education system in America that caters to different types of learning patterns, and doesn’t pool kids into “smart” and “dumb” categories based on test scores. As an aspiring teacher, I think we’ve turned the education system into a factory, and measure everyone on a baseline of standards, which is efficient. I’m not condemning the system as a whole, but the standards we’ve created to grade our kids on. Test scores matter, but they’re only part of the story, kids shouldn’t be labeled as “stupid” just because they aren’t great test takers. And then there’s the topic of kids from different culture backgrounds with varying experiences, all expected by the system to perceive a test question in one way.

2) I want to learn boxing. I went to a LA Boxing class a couple of weeks ago, which I would recommend to anyone under a lot of stress looking for an outlet. I just don’t have the time at this point in my life to pursue to the extent that I want to.

There are more things I want to do, but these two stick out to me at the moment.
