Dailies - Masters - March 13, 2012

I, as you may or may not know, want to do everything. I want to be great at traditional and digital art, video production, sound/music production, game production, coding and programming. The list really does go on and on, and when I find something new very interesting, I add it to the list. So many people wonder why I don't just pick one and go with it. I could focus on it and become an expert at it. I don't want to be an expert, I want to be a master. At least the way I connotate the two, expert means knowing all in one specific field, whereas master means knowing all of many fields, related or unrelated in any way.
I enjoy learning and just knowing a lot of great information, I just have to find interest in it. My brother, he loves numbers and maths. He asks a question, even if it's really simple, and goes at it, trying to learn as much as he can on his way to the solution. I bet if I loved maths like he does I would find it intriguing, but I usually can't follow. My oldest brother loves communication and politics. He's had internships all over the place, understand completely what he's doing and what's going on, but I just think it's cool he likes all that. My cousin has gone all over the world, Singapore, Netherlands, Japan, China, most or Europe, Canada, parts of South America. Guess what, he studies how atoms in a substance stack or lay on top of each other. This is important in tons of things like pharmaceuticals. Though he is not going into the medical side of this field.
See, my entire (close and extended) family enjoy learning.
How does this relate to me and skill levels in a stupid video game? Well let's look at those levels (insert levels image here) As you can see many of the levels are very close to the same level, some slightly more, some slightly less and then there's those down at the bottom that are super low. I'll explain everything in parts.
All of the levels close to the same median (around 60 or so) are things that I find interesting, and I want to learn more about. Just like I find all this technology and art stuff interesting. The levels that are higher than the rest represent the things I enjoy the most or started learning very early on that I kept with. The very low levels, though they be the ones people give the most respect to are nearly nothing. These represent things I may have tried or just never liked. Things like cooking or sports. I like cooking, and would like to know how to cook very well, but just didn't find much of an interest. Sports, I don't understand them. That's just all there is to say.
So really, with the game RuneScape I have found out that thought I am not mainstream in what I like and do, I love to learn about something. Not just one thing, but a lot of things all at the same time.
I do not feel I adequately explained but it's late now so
