Maybe SomedayI hear that it's possible to get college credit for life experience. Currently I am enrolled in the School of Hard Knocks, my daddy's alma mater. Like my daddy, I do what I can to increase my knowledge. Just in the last 3 years, I have read nearly 100 books. I take notes on them. I plan to save them all on my flashdrive. And I plan to write about what I have learned. Writing not only helps me remember things, but it helps me think, and understand things better, too.
I focus my reading on five or six topics each year. I have found interesting books on adoption, autism, economics(really!), memoirs, poetry, and U.S. history. There are so many things I want to know about!
My dream is to take my notes and papers from my courses at the School of Hard Knocks, including my journal, and just maybe, someday, I'll get a college degree. Meantime, I'll keep reading and writing, cause I like to know stuff.
