IN NEED OF DIRECTION: WHAT SHOULD I STUDY IN SCHOOL

Interior of Abandoned Building

“Choose what fits you.”


that thing that makes you, you

When choosing an educational path in life, you want to pick the thing that sets you apart from everyone else. But you also want to select a path that will aid in your growth after college. And that is the thing that your mind wraps around which will benefit you in your growth in life. It’s more than just going to school, it’s the foundation for you entering life.

topics of interest

Sit down and compile a list of topics you want to study. Write down the top 50, then narrow it down to 25. After that, narrow it down to 10, and from there 5, then 3. And of the top 3, choose what works for you. I know 50 sounds like a lot, but you want to give yourself as many options to choose from as possible. But I will say, once you narrow down the choices of what you really like down to a top 5, start trying out these options. You’ll know what clicks and what doesn’t.

honesty is key

Are you getting better at what it is you do? Be honest, know what you are doing is your thing. So many people think just because they want to do something, it means it’s what they should be doing. Not necessarily so, what’s good for you is not what you may want to do. It may be on the basis of how good are you at what you’re doing. So knowing what educational material your brain starts to wrap around will give you the courage to step into the world.

build your base

On your road to success in your educational pursuits, be sure to grow mentally. Go outside the classroom, and create your knowledge that you are not being taught in the classroom. If you solely depend on a degree alone, you’ll find yourself in serious trouble. You will only have the foundation, but nothing more. Imagine walking around New York City, with all these skyscrapers, and smack dab in the middle of all of them, a foundation, and nothing else. It’s out of place and a cause for concern. So build, build, and continue building.

JUNEDUCATION: A MONTH TO LEARNING

accomplishment, ceremony, college

“What is it really?”


june

The month of May is ending and June is beginning. And the month of June is going to be yet another topic. And the topic for the month will be education. Once again, 12 topics video uploaded and throughout the month random post surrounding education. The topics will be how public grammar schools are changing with technology to how negatively technology is effecting teaching; even how the landscape of college is changing.

why education

The reason for the focus this month, is how the need to attend school and attain an education is changing. Arising questions of whether we will need college in the future or not. The cost associated with going to and not going to school. Technology taking over that could put educators out of jobs. Or maybe a new market will open to teachers teaching from home. Coincidently I am writing this topic while schools across the country are wrapping up the year.

enjoy

So, as you read, I hope you find enjoyment out the topics as you have thus far with my blog. Continue to read, like, share, and follow.

ALL EXCLUSIVITY: THE REAL FACE OF AMERICA’S INCLUSIVE NATURE

Image result for in god we trust

“We are all created equal, yet access is not.”


In American society today, we always preach that we are this fair and balanced nation. We are all created equal in the eyes of God. And we push the idea that we are an all inclusive nation. Yet, we have so many signs of exclusivity in our society. These exclusivity aspects of America exist in the education environment, workplace, among genders, and when observing Related imagethe income disparity. So my question is, are we really this all inclusive nation? Do we push one ideology and stand behind another? And if we do push these ideologies, what is the main reason for doing so? Why have we taught an up and coming generation that life is about everyone winning? 

Well, one main reason we may push one ideology and stand behind another is so that those who are in a good position don’t have to worry about being replaced. You might say, how so? Well, if we are telling a generation that everyone gets a trophy, then flip it on them once they become adults, they don’t attempt to rise through the rankings. They become discouraged and won’t attempt. They’ll wind-up being content with their current position. That content behavior is detrimental to them because they are not continuing to learn. All the while life is moving around them. Your position at the top is now solidified.

So now that we have some idea as to why we push a separate agenda that we actually don’t live by, where do we see it taking hold? One area of interest to look at is in the academic world. We tell children to go to school and get your education. But what are you learning really that you actually need. Image result for degreeBecause chances are, you’ll never use this information again. Yet, if you look into the past, a college degree meant something. You were actually getting training for the field you were entering. But now, since everyone is going to college, how important is a college education. America is an exclusive nation, what’s the value in something every person can easily attain.

It’s the difference between owning a bicycle and a Rolls Royce. The Rolls is worth more because few people can have it. And the bike is something anyone can own. If everyone could afford a Rolls Royce, there would be no real value. Now you might think, that’s a car, this is school. But the same exist with a college degree. How valuable is the degree if every year millions of kids are getting one. So now, you must have more going for you in life, than just a degree. A degree is like baking a cake. The degree is the icing on the cake and a graduate degree is some sprinkles. Everything that goes into that cake is ingredients; which is you as that person.

Another exclusive area of America is the wealth disparity. There are so many things that the small 1% have, that the rest don’t. And not only don’t have, can’t gain access to in life. If we’re so inclusive, why is it that a kid born in poverty can’t have the same great education as a kid growing up in Image result for the 1%Beverly Hills. Because we are not inclusive where it really counts in life. And that’s the moral of the story. We are all inclusive, except when we really need the essentials of life. Food, education, housing; the basic needs for a human survival is exclusive, but the wants outside of needs are inclusive. It’s a false sense of collectivism.
