I always used to approach school as a checklist. Finish this history report and move on. Algebra II, Check. These were stepping stones on my path to freedom as a graduate. In many ways college was similar. It wasn’t until after I finished that I discovered a different view on education. Each time we learn something new it is fuel for us. We can continue to learn and shine bright or learn only what we must to get by. What sounds more appealing to you?
