To School or Not To School

At the age of around 8 or so, I learned that I could generate money on my own merits. I wanted a pair of Soccer Sandals, so I got a bucket and some car wash gear and went around the neighborhood washing cars until I made enough for the sandals. From that point forward, I always questioned the "need" for me to be in school.

Does school actually set us up for a life of failure? From my experiences, most of my peers have DREADED going to school; day in and day out. How is it possible to obtain gainful/positive results by consistently partaking in activities which have a negative impact on your spirit? I don't think you can.

This premise appears to be evidenced by the fact that most adults make the transition from school to work, and they hate work even more. School is viewed by most as a means of preparation for the most hated workforce. Yes you have to work to eat, but I feel that the line of work that you choose to endeavor in should be totally up to you.

It appears that the solution to this paradox is to learn how to cash in on your passion. Figure out what you spend hours upon hours doing, "without pay", and then figure out how to get paid from this activity. If more individuals were able to do this, I believe that we would more closely align with the so called "utopian" society.

Do you agree or disagree?

Workouts

The body enjoys workouts. Weather it be a stretch, a light jog, or a full-fledged Hulk Hogan weight lifting session; the human body wants this type of activity in order to renew vital parts.

Happy Work Outs Folks!
