    I agree with you completely. When I was an undergraduate, I had a lot of growing up to do, and learning maths was rarely my top priority. I think that's mostly necessary - if you look at people who were utterly devoted to their studies, most of them are curiously immature and unworldly.

    Recently (the past year or two) I've been getting seriously interested in logic and computer science, and studying with a ferocity that I never could muster when I was supposed to be doing it. In fact, after working as a programmer for the past five years, I'm going to do an MSc starting this autumn and planning to follow it with a PhD.

    Learning something because you want to know is so much easier than learning something because you need to in order to pass an exam!
