Walking through my college bookstore last week with my brother was a bit of a revelation. We passed shelves lined with books about sports nutrition and business development and I wished that I’d had more time, that I’d been able to double major and triple minor or something.
There’s just so much that interests me, so many things I want to know about – things that I could not fathom being so interested in as an 18-year-old.
I don’t regret majoring in American Studies, nor getting a masters in Journalism. I loved them both. But 4 years is such a short time for all that knowledge out there.
Thank goodness that the end of school does not mean the end of learning. I may not earn any more degrees, but I can still pursue knowledge in any field to whatever depth and breadth serves my purposes.
What would you like to study, given the time and resources? These days, I think I’d delve into exercise science . . . .
