There’s so much information, especially today, available online and in libraries for anyone to access and educate themselves on various topics/disciplines. Unfortunately when in school as a kid, like many I didn’t fully appreciate my free education. As an adult and college student I’ve grown to love learning. Not just to get good grades and graduate, but for the sake of learning itself. I have many interests, including but not limited to;
- Italian (Language and Culture)/ Same with Japanese
- Music (particularly the violin, used to play, would love to pick it up again)
- History (never my favorite subject when I was a kid but now I feel motivated to learn more
- Weather/nature (volcanoes, geology)
Whenever I come across something I don’t know much about that even slightly interests me, I see it as a challenge and begin researching and learning what I can. Education is a lifelong journey. It doesn’t have to be complex stuff, it could be as simple as a card game my friend introduced me to, I knew nothing about it and have never played any living card games but I went and learned as much as I could about it, which ended up turning into a big interest/hobby of mine.
I’m very happy that I’ve come to fully appreciate the value of education.
