The library building of the University of Guadalajara's local branch where I occasionally audited an anthropology class in Ocotlan, Jalisco. Fascinating!A great little school in Western Oklahoma where I finished my Associate's degree after starting at University of Central Oklahoma (formerly Central State University).
A genius I am not. You didn't need me to tell you that. However, I often crave a mental challenge. If things get boring, I get distracted and cranky. My life has been characterized by one form of mental challenge or another from the beginning. Fortunately, I've been given opportunities to exercise my mental muscle. I learned Spanish and became fluent by the age of 22 or so. I attended a three year Bible school and finished an Associate's degree in secular university (next stop: Bachelor's degree). I've been fascinated by computers and programming/software, so there's a consistent learning curve happening. I even switched to Apple's Macbook for a few years to familiarize myself with that branch of technology. I'm dabbling with Linux's Ubuntu and other versions. I occasionally audited a college class while I lived in Mexico. Studying for my insurance license was invigorating and I'm sure the following education in sales will be equally challenging.
I've said all that to say this, I can't get enough. Hopefully, when I'm 90 I'll still be learning things and stretching my mental muscle in new ways. I've always admired the people who kept on learning. I don't consider myself especially bright. However, I believe I can learn almost anything.
Pardon this rather egocentric blog post about ME!! ha
