I know what Autodidactic means because I found out and then taught it to myself!
I am currently researching the meaning of the word autodidactic.I am also researching suitable punishments for people who use the linguistic construction "I am loving it" other than as a quote or ironically. Perhaps being condemned to work in a well known burger bar forever might be appropriate.
...my advice is to go into Psychology and you can do whatever you feel like doing and hold any opinion you wish to hold. Even with this latitude, you can still say you are a professional.

Is that a cunning jab at DB?The eddy-covariance flux is to do with changing moisture levels (amongst other things) above a forest canopy, and fortunately, I won't be doing the maths either. Ironically, it is an integral part of literal stream-flow investigations - the links between water availability and forest ecosystems.
BC - "I am loving it" is referred to as the Present Perfect tense in many languages. It is used to refer to something that is happening right now.As an example, take the phrases "I want chicken" and "I am wanting chicken". In English the 2 mean the same, but in other languages the meanings are different. "I want chicken" is an habitual act, an ongoing want for chicken, whereas "I am wanting chicken" means I want it at this moment in time.An example of where these 2 constructs can be legitimately used in English would be "I go to college" and "I am going to college" where the first statement indicates an ongoing situation and the second that you are on your way to college. (Forget the use of "I am going to college" to indicate something that will happen in the future, for instance as a reply to "What are doing next year?")
