♡ Learn

(credit) Skillshare


I just had Spring Break–a break from my position at work. However, I was also finishing up some post-grad studies to *learn* and…sheepishly…to get that pay raise. I’m studying….and typing…and researching…and typing…and cursing the beautiful weather outside. Well, I’m not cursing the weather outside. I’m cursing the final projects that I’m having to finish up as I slave away indoors.

Anyways, as many people do this–juggling work and school–I’m going to swallow the burn. *Sigh* I actually enjoy attending post-grad university. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to attend my whole adult life, practically. My undergrad. My post-grad. I’m learning a lot of useful things this time around, things I’ve already used in practice at work. It really is such as privilege to attend university. But the actual studying part? I wish I could do without.

I’m just babbling, but really enjoyed this Skillshare snapshot of learning. So good. I’m also doubly grateful that I did not accrue student loan debt. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

2013 – LET’S DO THIS! 

Good luck! Good luck to me too. I need lots of good luck. Well, who doesn’t? I am already quite lucky, so I suppose I shouldn’t ask for more good luck….but then again, why not? There’s enough good luck to go around after all.

Already I’m enrolled in two online university courses to finish up my grad studies, while working full-time…and I feel like bonking my head against the wall already. While also being present and grateful for this lovely, wonderful lucky life of mine (which, of course, is speeding up….damn…gotta wind down, lest I forget to appreciate it all). Stop. Breathe. I CAN do this. Breathe. Luck’s on my side. *wink*

Good luck to you. Lots of love to you. Always. Let’s enjoy 2013 together.

So whaddya say?

Let’s DO this!

We pay a heavy price for our fear of failure. It is a powerful obstacle to growth. It assures the progressive narrowing of the personality and prevents exploration and experimentation.

There is no learning without some difficulty and fumbling. If you want to keep on learning, you must keep on risking failure — all your life.

– John W. Gardner, former U.S. Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare

Virtue and learning, like gold, have their intrinsic value;

but if they are not polished, they certainly lose a great deal of their lustre,

and even polished brass will pass upon more people than rough gold. 

  – Lord Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield
