self-serving education

I think I’ve always categorized classes, seminars, whatnot like this — but without the labels:

  • A fire-hose of what I’m looking for
  • So good to scratch that itch
  • Fascinating and I’ll put it in my back pocket —Girl Scouts are always prepared
  • Huh — didn’t know that thing… the other things, though…
  • Glad to be here, hope I can help the club
  • Sometimes a system is just checking boxes

Offhand I don’t recall being in a space, getting angry, and thinking, “This is a waste of my time!” But as you can see, I have a lot of reasons for staying in ‘the room’ that aren’t concretely tied to -my- learning.

And it helps when I know why I’ve decided to be there.
