For example, when I had a required geology/astronomy college class, I left it for last. (I'm the type of person who eats dessert first.)

I recognized igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary, and I also knew how they were made. I could tell the difference!
So give it a try. Do something new. Who knows? Maybe you'll like being blue!
