Day 9: How important you think education is
If you're well-educated, you'll probably: have more money, have more choices, be left of center politically, get married later (decreasing your chances of divorce), and other good things I can't remember off the top of my head. Education is good, important, and something I've taken for granted. We need good schools if we want productive, well-rounded, and most importantly, happy and healthy citizens.
On the other hand, "too much" education can mess with your mind. Too many choices can freak you out. I really love this saying (anyone know where it's from?):
"Intelligence [or, lots of education] is like four-wheel drive. It only allows you to get stuck in more remote places."
I had a great week hanging out with family --- hopefully I'll get a chance to write about that soon. Right now it's time for breakfast and hastily throwing random unpacked items in my car. I'm headed to St. Louis tonight, Minneosota tomorrow, and I should roll into the Tetons sometime next Thursday.
Hope everyone has a good week!
