Share Your World for September 28, 2020

It’s Monday! Time for Share Your World! Melanie has all the questions and the rules of the game, in case you’d like to play along. And awaaaaaaay we go!

Where do you feel most at home? Please be more specific than “at home, doh” please. It could be a room in your home, a person, a location… My "office" in my house. I spend a good deal of time in here, it’s a complete disaster area, and I call it home.

Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car? With my bad knees, I’m really not in any position to do any of them. I’ll say a bicycle.

What song would you sing on “Karoke Night” (if you were forced to do so)?

That’ll teach ’em…

University or life experience, which do you feel best prepares you for life? Unless you’re going to be a doctor, nurse, lawyer, engineer, secondary school teacher, or accountant, you’re better off diving right into adulthood. Half of a bachelor’s degree is bullshit busywork, stuff you probably should have covered in high school or that you can get for about $5 in late fees at the library. I say, get the life experience first, then decide whether you need the sheepskin. Life prepares you for life, not university.

See you in the funny papers! And don’t forget, the bird is the word!

  1. I must now do this to my brother….I shall call him up and sing that song. I danced to that tune! I would be so happy somewhere in a small town in the alps. I feel so at home when I am in Austria. I would ride a horse because I find it so freeing. Oh gosh, if I sang all the dogs and cats would start to wail. I might sing something from meatloaf..Would you love me forever…I gotta know right now!

  2. OMW! That song will be in my head all day! I agree with you about the university. A lot of the stuff you are taught doesn’t prepare you for the real world. My place in the house is in the living room on my computer.

    1. There are so many better ways to occupy one’s time than sitting in a college classroom. Not that getting instruction is a bad thing (it can steer you in the right direction and you can learn valuable skills), and there are so many options available now that weren’t when we were in our late teens and early 20’s that can save a fortune in tuition, room and board, and books. If I were a parent, I’d definitely encourage my young’uns to explore alternatives…

  3. Hi John – that was just awful … I’ll never been able to go outside again – that song will haunt me. I’d love my happy place to be by a cottage on the coast with beautiful trees … sadly – it’s by the computer … but I’m still learning while there. All the best – that song is awful!! Hilary

  4. Just did it on Maggie’s blog
    The kitchen was and is my idea of home
    Ride – a horse, grew up on them
    Karaoke – because I stopped drinking before it came into being, I never had anything to do with it
    University might prepare you for a job but experiences prepares you for life

  5. I agree with you on university … 110%. I was on the 23 year plan. Right into the workforce but later forced to get the piece of paper in order to advance. I learned how to write an A paper and that’s about it. Life prepared me for life. Guess what? I’m still not fully prepared 🙂
