You don’t need to be in school to improve your education. Check out Coursera!One of the biggest issues that I continue to see pop up for people, especially within the young adult generation[s], is the problem of being at a loss for readily available, and seemingly ‘affordable’ educational sources, information, and courses. I recently reblogged a post with a brilliant list of 500 FREE online courses from top universities, which was pretty popular. Then I received a suggestion from a lovely follower of mine to check out Courseera, as I might be interested. So, in addition to the previous online free courses post, I present you with yet another amazing and FREE resource for personal mind expansion. Courseera offers dozens of free online courses from various universities such as Princeton, Stanford, University of Michigan, and University of Pennsylvania.
- Mathematics and Statistics

Knowledge is power. Educate yourself, explore, and expand!

reblogging for later
I think I am going to choose one course and force myself to take it. I get so freaked out by the idea of education that counts toward a degree, that I have to pay for.
This would be a nice chance to just learn something because I can.
im still laughing at this
Ice Hotel Jukkasjärvi, Sweden
The drop in temperature to several degrees below zero in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden marks the start of an ephemeral art endeavour. Using frozen water from the Torne River, artists from all over the world visit this small village, 200km north of the Arctic Circle, to create an exclusive art exhibition - Ice Hotel. Each design is created with imagination and hard work, only to melt away under the unforgiving rays of the sun come springtime. http://icehotel.com/uk/Magazine/
Forget the cold and inevitable frostbite, I would stay there.
It caught my attention while going through some screenshots just how bad Jack’s fingernails were. This lead to me wondering if the other’s happened to be different, and surely they were! It will never cease to amaze me how much detail was put into this beautiful movie.
Oh my! And that’s only the hands.
I nearly wept in joy when I saw the details on Pitches fingernails.
