When are we going to use this in everyday life? 

The perennial question from students. And the answer I wish I'd given:
Perhaps never. At least not with the everyday life that you lead now. But what you should aspire to, is to lead a life that calls on you to use your mind in new ways. To learn not only what we're doing today, but to want to explore beyond what you know now, perhaps because you use it, but perhaps because you enjoy learning and expaning your mind.
Or maybe I'm just a hopeless dreamer.
