I am one of the many who decided to go back to school. My reason to pursue additional levels of education was in pursuit of a better job with a bigger paycheck. Of course, there is an element of desire for the betterment of myself, and expanding my understanding… yeah and blah, blah, blah… all that stuff. But money, too. Let’s be honest.
Money is not the wrong reason. Any reason that is authentic and true is a good reason. Because the authentic and true reasons are the reasons that will get you to the end.
In the meantime, let’s discuss about what tools help us get to the end. Caffeine? Learning stuff that matters? Laughter? Taking a well-deserved break? Procrastinating until the inner adrenaline junkie kicks in so you can get that assignment submitted on time? Yep, all the things.
This blog is going to be one of my tools. I am going to use it to document the things I have learned and realized along the way. Or the memes and tweets that made me laugh. Or the conversations I participated in. And hopefully, a space for others to share their tools, laughs, and conversations with me, and others going (or wanting to go) through learning as an adult.
You will learn that I am a strong believer in originality an authenticity. And if I repurpose something, I give credit to those who deserve it. As I started this blog, WordPress graciously started a post to inspire me, and believe it or not… it did! It was topical to this blog, and it made me smile. So, I leave you with WordPress.com’s inspirational words for me.
And now, I am off to get some work done because it is the right thing to do. That’s a lie. Like almost all students furiously working on an assignment, I have a deadline. Duh.
