As Solomon the wise knew, learning is always extremely important. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been passionate about learning. And while I don’t find myself a particularly smart person, I’ve always craved knowledge.
This wasn’t a sudden realization after attending community college for a couple of years; I’ve loved finding out new things ever since I can remember. My last year in middle school was the year that I realized that I wanted nothing more than to go to college. My Dad never went, he actually dropped out of high school and got his GED later. As far as Mom was concerned, college was something that was expected in her family. She never got her degree because she ran off with my Dad before she got to the end.
This is them. I love them very much.
Even so, I don’t think either of them regret their educational decisions. They both seem incredibly happy with the lives they’ve ended up living. My brother and sister didn’t go to college either.
So as the youngest member on my Father’s side of the family, I found myself wanting to go to school. That meant any school. I didn’t get as much as I could have out of high school because the learning environment wasn’t very conducive. But ever since going to college, nearly every class I’ve been a part of has given something back. Even though I wasn’t born into wealth like Solomon, I seek the same thing he asked for: knowledge.
(He doesn't look very happy does he?
