Good morning! I do not know about your area but in mine the kids are slowly starting back to school, this morning I noticed many new and eager faces waiting at the bus stop.
I have to be honest I hated going back to school after a nice long summer holiday. Not because I did not like my tartan wool uniform on still 80 degree days, or because I did not want to see my friends but simply because now my time was no longer my own. There would be no more waking up after 8:00, or spending long, lazy days at the library or frolicking at the lake or staying up to the wee hours of the morning with a good book.
Typically though once I was back in my routine I did enjoy it. I have fond memories of my time at both Catholic grade school and high school and feel as if I was given a strong foundation to go out into the world. I am not so sure however if my strict Catholic schooling prepared me socially but that is a story for another day.
What was your favorite subject(s)? I loved history, literature and social studies. Math, logic and science were not too high on my list though. I simply did not get the same enjoyment from dissecting a piglet or a cat as I did from reading Shakespeare or learning about the romance and beauty of Marie Antoinette.
Are you preparing your kids or yourself to go back to school? Are you looking forward to it? Or could you uses a few more carefree weeks of summer?
If you would like to go back to school you could take a few free classes from leading professors and Universities around the world at: Udacity, Coursera or Edx. Each offers an array of interesting classes from The History of Chinese Architecture, to Poetry of New England, to Introduction to Solid State Chemistry and more. The list of classes are diverse, interesting and endless.
I already signed up for a few classes myself. After all one is never to old to learn something new.
I hope that you have a great day!
