Don’t get us wrong — the classroom is a great place. It’s where you get a proper education, the kind good-paying employers like to see on a resume. Yes, you can accumulate all kinds of debt on your way to a good career, but it’s hard to get ahead without that degree or diploma at the end of the tunnel.
That said, there’s plenty of life to be had outside the hallowed halls of academia — and plenty of learning, too. It can’t just be an endless march from desk to desk, listening to your teachers and professors drone on about theory.
And just because you didn’t learn something from a professor doesn’t mean it isn’t worth knowing. There’s value in learning for learning’s sake! Go forth armed with knowledge!
