I have been in bit of a blogging slump lately. I do not know, I just seem a bit burnt out from work and skool. On line schooling is going great, a little harder this semester; but I would not want it any other way.
I can not wait unitl Memorial day weekend, we are all going to Wildwood NJ. We have reservations to this hotel on da beach. I am not sure what to exspect on this trip so I think I will keep my hopes low haha.
But to help me out of my slump, a blogging buddy has tagged me with a little meme that i think I can handel. Kilroy has started a little thing he calls:
Kilroy's EDUCATION Meme
In a nut shell it is basiclly a little note about your educational experience. But I think anyone reading this could probably figure this out by reading it. Now that I have the hind-sight of time I see that my parents were right about most things in the world. The old saying, 'If I knew then what I know now' But the sad part is that I knew then, well at least I was told about it. The other sad part is I am haivng a similar problem with the sister-in-law. I have the knowledge of how things are and I am trying to share it. But she does not seem to want to hear any of it. We all know the problem. Youth believe that they are different and they will be able to do this or that without sacrafice. I wonder if I was this thick?
Yes, yes I was. I was given so much advise when I was younger and it was all lost on me. I see her and know that nothing anyone says will make a difference. Humans can not learn from others, they have to experience it personaly. What is that other saying.......' Youth is lost on the young' And if you understand what this means then you are probably over the age of 30 and realise that all the advise you were given was good advise.
But enough of the ugliness of realality, on with the meme----
---->What was the name of the teacher that was most influential in your life from grades K through 6?
My 6th grade science teacher Mr. Burns. He had to be the coolest teacher I have ever had. He knew how to talk to us and how to treat us. When everyone else wrote us off as useless he made us feel like peeople again. You see, I was always in the classes with the under achievers. I was not retarded just a little special :D, and yess I do have ADD and sometimes substract as well.
---->What subject did you favor in high school?
I loved all my creative writing classes. I could always come up with ideas faster than anyone. I still do, I just have never delevoped any of them into anything usefull as of yet. Bad me!
----> Did you attend a university and if so did you attain a degree?
I did but I never finished. I am currently doing the online degree thingie. I have to get a degree if I want to go any higher than I am currently. I can do the job better than most but do not have the piece of paper that says I sent 4-5years of my life doing pointless book work and drinking beer.
----> Do you learn best through books, by watching or hands-on?
Hands on, do dought. Books can never teach you want exsperience can. Ever try to follow a book when trying to repair your car???
----> Has education been an ongoing process for you? How do you feel about that?
It should always be an ongoing process. The moment you stop learning is the day you mentally die. Long after the body has stopped the mind can go on.
---->What seven people are you tagging to do this?
I am not going to tag anyone, I have to get off this thing and get to work. But I just wanted to show a little love to another admirer of the Doctor.
Education is the keystone that hold up the arch way to the future. Without the knowledge of where you have come from how can you go forward to what you will become?
And not wanting to end on a serious note...here is a pick the little woman took of me this weekend. And yes I am sober....
