“things you’ve learned that school won’t teach you”.
you mean I went to school to learn?
strangely enough, this is a tough one for me. quite possibly because I believe I’ve learned many things outside of school. from life experiences.
I did fine in school. and my grades were good. but I wasn’t the best in math. I didn’t have
raw any talent for art. I was involved in music, but only enjoyed it to be with my friends. history, english, biology ..they were all things I had to do, not wanted. so when I got to college and was told to pick my major .. I didn’t have the slightest. I was intimidated by the people that knew exactly where they wanted to go in life. because I didn’t. how was I to know? I had never been overwhelmingly amazing at anything. [there’s always going to be someone better. but that does not mean you’re not good. or that you can’t improve. if you enjoy it, do it]. I chose business. the sky was the limit. the possibilities endless. you can be creative & analytical all at the same time, which I thought were two qualities that described me. but you also learn key life skills in business; how to communicate more effectively, money management, leadership, and ethics. just to name a few. I am happy with the path I took for my education. but you know what I’ve learned since graduating ..
I love to write.
I love to read.
I love to do art & DIY projects.
I enjoy cooking.
all things I never knew I had a passion for in school. all things that are now a part of my daily life.
so school is all well & good. but dive in, expose yourself to many things ..and stick with what makes you happy. because truly, that’s what matters in the end.
and when I asked [J] for a little advice on this topic, he said “don’t trust a fart”. I guess that’s good advice too. but don’t most people learn that hard lesson in school? sitting in a quiet classroom? yikes.
