In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fifteen Credits.”
If you’re in school, are you enjoying your classes? If you’re out of school, what do you miss about it — or are you glad those days are over?
I associate the Fifteen credits prompt with my college years and immediately I begin to recall those wonderful college days when my only obligation in life was to attend two or three classes a day, several times a week, and never on Friday. I actually studied between one to three hours daily and the rest of the day was mine to deal with, and this was before video games.
I imagine, if video games were available, I would not have left my dorm room for those impromptu keg parties, throughout the school year especially when I ordered more pizza than anytime in my life.
As a middle-aged adult, I look back at that time of my life with only a smile and the warm feeling of love and happiness. I have never wanted to relive any part of my past, since 90% of my life has been an incredible journey.
So, the prompt, 15-credits is a reminder for me to reflect upon my years of schooling and yet I’m keenly aware and understand the opportunities l lost due to my lack of focus and direction. Now my journey is ahead of me with wisdom and knowledge, knowing life is a continuous process of learning.
In the history of humanity, the opportunity to read, learn and collaborate with people from around the world to, access, and expand their base of knowledge is truly unimaginable, just twenty years ago. So, if you have responded to this prompt with the belief your years of schooling was horrible in any, just consider the following.
You are reading my response utilizing technology you possibly did not have ten years ago? So, I say keep learning, who knows what the future holds?
