NaBloPoMo: E is for Education
For the month of November, I’ll be participating in NaBloPoMo. This means a blog post every single day! To give myself some help coming up with 30 posts, I’m going to follow a pattern. Monday through Saturday each week, I will blog on a letter of the alphabet; Sundays will be whatever I come up with! You can read all my NaBloPoMo alphabet posts here.
Today marks 34 days until I finish my bachelor’s degree.
In 34 days, I will have achieved something I’ve wanted as long as I can remember.
Sooo… what now?
I am constantly asked what I’m going to do in January, and people are often taken aback when I reply “I have no idea!” People expect me to have it all figured out, when, to be honest, I think I have things less figured out now than I did when I first came to university.
The one thing I do know is that this will not be the end of my education. I believe that learning should be lifelong – we can always, always learn knew skills and ways of thinking. What I don’t know is where my learning goes from here. Do I consider further structured education, like a master’s, a second bachelor’s, or skills training at a college? Do I pursue new skills?
I’m ready for whatever the next adventure is, and I’m so excited to keep learning.
