If You Aren’t Learning You Aren’t Living

I said this to someone this morning who came through the line at the Credit Union. It was followed by the advice that if you ever find yourself bored and not learning anything anymore for whatever reason; quit your job, take a trip, get a new job, whatever, just go learn something.

She said she was 17. I hope she takes my advice. Because I didn’t – haven’t. I keep telling myself that I just need to pay off my loans, my debts, but where does that get me?

You know, I have plans. So many plans. So many dreams. Right now I’m learning where I’m at. Sooner or later I may get bored and no longer be learning enough at INterra, and I’ll endeavor to take my own advice and move on… to keep learning.

I never want it to be said ever again that “she lived a safe, quite, and unobtrusive life” I want it to be said that “she lived a life of adventure and passion, and learned and knew so much.”

I’d much rather be a Baggins than a Took.
