I’m so glad you happened upon my little corner of the Internet. The Constant Scholar is a space to discuss any and all aspects of education, learning, and bettering yourself through knowledge!
I know, I know. “What a nerd.” But when it comes down to it, nerds rule the world! I believe that the more you can learn about the world around you, how it is, was, and might yet be, the more you can impact it and make your place in it.
This isn’t always a popular state of mind. I have many times been ‘accused’ of being a jack of all trades, as if that’s somehow a bad thing. The saying is, of course, “jack of all trades, master of none”, so I sort of understand where they’re coming from. The worry is that if you try to learn about everything, you’ll never be an expert in anything. But that’s where your own education philosophy comes in. I personally believe that you should learn everything you can about anything that interests you. Some things will interest you more than others, and therefore you should learn even more about those things.
“No thief, however skillful, can rob one of knowledge, and that is why knowledge is the best and safest treasure to acquire.” – L. Frank Baum
But education is expensive. At the very least, official education is expensive, and that is often required to be considered an expert or “master” in anything. That is why my blog will focus a LOT on unconventional means of learning. Particularly those which provide some sort of proof of what you have learned, such as a certificate. In today’s wireless world, education via Internet is growing and improving every day. That makes me awfully excited. How about you?
A Short Note About Me
My name is Michelle, and I live in Jacksonville, North Carolina with my husband AJ and two very adorable fur babies, an Alaskan Malamute named Zara and a Siberian Husky named Raven. I have a bachelor’s degree in Music and an associate’s degree in Russian, but I plan to apply for graduate school in the fall, in programs for Slavic Studies. I hope to one day teach Russian at the university level.
