Thursday Thoughts: Lifelong Learning


I've always enjoyed learning.  As a child, I did like school (and took it very seriously!), but now that I'm an adult, learning is even more meaningful.  Besides more "academic" topics, areas such as consumer reports, family history research, child-rearing tips, and vacation planning fall into the category of lifelong learning.  Oh, and let's not forget all the "how-to" information which comes in handy as a homeowner and homemaker.  Learning encompasses an infinite number of topics.

Thanks to technology, a simple click of the mouse allows me to study just about anything.  Each summer, though, I have a chance to return to a classroom setting, when Brigham Young University holds Campus Education Week.  I love stepping back on campus; it feels like going home. 

BYU posted the class schedule today, and I feel like a kid in a candy shop.  How will I possibly choose which classes to take?  (There are over 1,000 offered.)  I know that no matter what I end up taking, I will come away "renewed, refreshed, and recharged."

How about you?  What are your favorite learning opportunities?



Thanks to BYU for offering Education Week.

  1. Nice to hear I'm not the only one. My hubby really can't understand why I love learning things and always wanting for more. Needless to say he doesn't loved his schoolyears.
    I would love to go back to school, if I only knew what I wanted to study!! I try to learn something (a skill or language) every year. Now I stopped with quilting-lessons, next year I will do a course in making stained glass.

  2. I have never been to Education Week. Every year I hear great stories about experiences there and feel like I missed out.

    Have a terrific time!

  3. What an opportunity! There are a ton of classes I would love to take. That would be a difficult decision. I too love taking classes!
