Blogging A to Z: C — College

I am insanely jealous that my daughter is in college. I get so excited when she registers for classes. I love hearing the titles of the classes and getting the chance to look at the syllabi for her classes. I love seeing what her textbooks are. And it’s all because I love learning. When you hear educators talk about wanting their students to be “life-long learners”, well, the work on me was done a long time ago.

I have taken two grad classes so far this year. I try to take as many as I can. Because I love learning. I love getting the syllabus and the textbook. I love the homework — the reading, the researching, the writing. I love finishing a class and feeling like I learned something new. I have never taken a class where I didn’t learn something.

I have often said that if I win the lottery, I would quit my job and become a professional student. I’d get my doctorate. Then I’d take classes in every imaginable topic — business, economics, political science, history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology, medicine, law. I don’t care if it’s a class on a college campus or at an off-site location or online. I’d just learn and learn and learn.

I hope Becky enjoys her college experience, because I’m so jealous that she gets to learn so much!
