Most of the things I use today have been self taught.
My college education – gave me a dash of
Statistics (one class early morning, I only remember because I disliked mornings in college) I remember doing things like calculating percentages of people who bought certain items in a grocery store, to establish demographics for supply and demand.
Psychology/Philosophy – both of which fed my introspective curiosity about humanity and our connection to a higher power, very existential, reality shifting stuff.
English classes I only took to fulfill requirements as I was not good at writing papers by some higher ed standards. Also, I always went for the high hanging fruit. In Psychology I tried to build a defense that people were connected by chemical attraction. The research was limiting and I think I got a C or something.
History? I have no recollection of taking history classes (ironic)
ALGEBRA – why?
Otherwise, I Focused on creative writing classes, scriptwriting, film/video, editing, Photography, Theater & acting classes.
Things I self taught myself…
Management skills, project, operations, et al…
Administrative skills, building systems for data management and operational continuity, consistency, sustainability, et al…
A friend told me I had diversified my income opportunities.
There is no purpose of this post. Except perspective. My own of course.
Welcome to my ongoing mid-life crisis.
