Never let formal education get in the way of your learning. – Mark Twain

I want to write something insightful and thoughtful but my brain has turned to mush. Perhaps its the two Bacardi Silvers I just drank or the paper on the fast food industry in Australia that I just wrote (whilst drinking Bacardi Silver).

I find that my school work sucks the life out of me and feels completely pointless about 87% of the time. Even when I put off doing my school work and do something awesome instead, I am still completely drained by the simple fact that I know that I should be doing my school work. I keep wondering what my life is going to be like without having to worry about papers, tests, projects, and going to classes. I think it’s going to be very freeing. I have been in school non-stop since I was five years old. That’s nearly twenty years. The funny thing is, I often feel like I have nothing to show for it. I mean, sure, I have a job that I like and got to do some pretty great things throughout the years; but, I feel like all of the lessons I learned weren’t the ones that were being taught.

For example:

True friendship never fades.
Life is too short to not tell people that you love them.
Family is more important than anything.
If your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough.
Beer before liqueur makes you sicker.
Watching TV or having a home-cooked meal with the person you love can be just as exciting as zip-lining through the St. Lucian rain forest.
Good things come to people who set goals and do everything in their power to achieve them.
Don’t get the box of tacos from Taco Bell. Just don’t.
Always question everything.
Dogs are the most loyal and loving creatures on this earth.
Be grateful.
Religion isn’t for me.
Always treat people the way you want to be treated.
Eat chocolate. Always.

Well, I guess I should get back to doing school work (or pretending to do school work while actually watching Mad Men)….. One day, I’ll be done with this crap, right?!?! Who knows, maybe I’ll actually learn something this semester!……..

 

……… Nah!
