I love to learn new things. I'm an autodidact and I love to look things up that I don't know. It's so much fun to see different views on different subjects. I am constantly learning on this forum. New words are my favorite thing. I love English and Science the most. I find it awesome that I can retain a lot of information. I love a challenge and I also love sharing new things that I've learned to others who may not know of this or that. Do you love to learn? I'm not in school anymore. I feel like I could learn more on my own than to have to pay for it in college.
Depends if you are forced to learn something or whether you are learning something because it fascinates you. I always find new interests that fascinate me or intrigue me and that usually makes me do plenty of reading and start to learn ... it's really exhilarating to me. I can't imagine a life where I didn't learn something every day.
I love to learn new things, but it also depends on what I'm learning. Youtube has been a great resource for how-to videos. I've also been taking a few courses through Udemy, when they have deals on some of their courses I'll sign up. I also try to find inexpensive workshops or meetings that I can go to. Creative projects, writing, and theater are my favorites.
I love to learn new things and I won't ever stop learning. Don't discount formal education though, it does force you to learn things that are outside your normal interests. Sometimes what you learn there will open a new area of learning.
Education is expensive however!
You're quite right.
Colleges and universities are almost scams because all that information is already free online, and most even Ivy League institutions have free online courses where you can get a degree.
