Wow, I feel like i read a description of me. Always learning about anything and everything thats even a little bit interesting. Always wanting to make and learn new things. Always wanted to say 'I dids a thing.'

I don't think you should ever stop learning new things. There are so many overlapping pieces of knowledge, even if you think you've learned something new you've probably also gave something else in your brain a +1. Eventually leading towards an expertise in a couple of things and a wide variety of knowledge in other topics.

I once went to an interview and even though they talked about a lot of stuff I never actually worked with, i knew what it was and how it kinda worked helped a lot. They ended up offering me a position.
