Thirst for Knowledge

I love to learn, oh, how I love to learn.  I am 46 years old and have done educational courses close to all my life.  Starting school at 4, I carried on in education till I had done my 6th form, then college, University, night school, on-line distance learning courses, day schools, part-time courses to fit into everyday life.  I have done it all.  This year is no exception.

I have started to do many courses this year, so far the list is Physics (Higgs Bosun), Forensic Science & Criminal Justice, English Literature (Shakespeare) and Mental Health.  Quite a varied set of subjects, but I have decided that this will be my year for learning, and as such I have signed up for many more courses to complete throughout the year.  Time is of the essence in all of them, and, of course understanding the subject.

Physics so far has been the main challenge, trying to get a grip of things like Newtonian Dynamics & Conservation Laws, and Harmonic Oscillators.  So far so good, and I have scored 89% on the tests, so I must be getting something right, but boy, it is tough going.  Literature on the other hand really is my bag.  I love literature in its many forms including classics, poetry and contemporary works.  Forensics is something I always wanted to do and was considering it at degree level, but instead opted for English Language and Literature.

I will see how I get on and see where this journey of education takes me.  One of the courses finishes next week, so I will be looking to fill that gap with another course, I wonder what it will be, maybe history? or more science? maybe something completely different, but one thing is for sure, I will fill that gap and I will succeed in my challenge.

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home. Apps
