School’s Out, Forever

School of Fish

My favorite kind of school

I just took the last final exam of my college career. What does this have to do with cruising? Why would I waste my time going to college if I’m going to move onto a boat in the near future? Most immigration systems follow a “points” system. For each desirable attribute a potential immigrant has, points are added. Once you reach a certain threshold of points, you’re in. It really is that simple. Know English? 15 points! Have a college degree? 30 points! You get the picture.

Michele and I aren’t planning on emigrating from the US while we are cruising… but who knows? Perhaps we will get to New Zealand and decide we want to stay. I was four classes away so I figured the “points” gained were worth it. I absolutely hate school, however. With a passion. Don’t get me wrong… I love learning. I just hate school. It sucks the life out of me. You know what my classes remaining were for a computer science degree? English 1, English 2, Speech, and Java Programming. Really? Worthless is an understatement.

In the end, my classes didn’t teach me anything. I’m glad that I got the degree, however. I’ll hopefully never stop learning, but I dearly hope I have stopped schooling.

Follow your dreams. Follow the Horizon.

This will be our last NaBloPoMo post. We know that it isn’t the end of the month yet. We feel like we are posting just to post, instead of for the right reasons. We don’t want to clog your inboxes and feed readers unless it is worth reading. We will be returning to our normal Wednesday and Saturday post schedule… see you Saturday!
