For a class, I am supposed to read a biography or an autobiography of basically anyone I want. Obviously, I want to read about someone who had an interesting and influential life. I googled "most influential people" and came up with the 2009 Times 100.
First of all, of the 100 people, I recognize only 23 names. Most of which are from the "Artists and Entertainers" and "Heroes and Icons" lists. What does this say about me?
Anyway, I wasn't very happy about that, so I am going to try harder to gain knowledge about what is going on in the world outside of the entertainment industry and the Provo bubble. That is [one of] my New Years Resolution[s]! Maybe as a good starting point, I will choose to read a biography about someone who I didn't know about until I looked at this list.
