You're learning clojure and don't know scheme?

I actually did this.

Frigging worthless university programming courses didn't bother teaching scheme.

Learning scheme's libraries on my own along with the lisp paradigm proved too daunting before (or maybe I just never found the right toy project to stick with, not really sure). Having java libraries there to back me up (I was doing stuff with hadoop too, so that made sense) gave me the little leg up I needed to get over the hump.
