Back to School...

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. I think I need a change. I have been doing the same thing for years and I need a more challenging job but at this stage, I don’t want to start all over again.

I have been thinking of going to college again (wishful thinking) and this time study things that I like. No more computer science and maths.

If I ever go back to school, I’m thinking of  taking up history, anthropology or geology and history is my favorite. It is more for self fulfilling than for my career enhancement.

When I was in Form I, I hate history because my history teacher was a lousy teacher. What she did was she read from the text book to us without explanation and if we asked any question she got angry.

My interest in history started when I was in Form 2 where we started to learn about World  History and in form three, I totally like history because of the teacher. He was a good teacher, joker and very patient with us.

The way he relayed the message was through stories. This was one subject where everybody looked forward to.

When I was in Form 4 and 5, I didn’t take history. However I did took few history classes when I was studying in US. One of the classes that has lasting impression on me was the American Indian history. Before that I only knew American Indian from the cowboy movies and it means only Apache and Comanche but there are more tribes. It was an eye opener for me to learn about the American Indian History and their cultures.

Will I really going back to college? Not sure but highly unlikely because my kids need me more. But I will definitely continue to seek and search the knowledge I want. That’s where Internet rules.



  1. The more we know about history, the more we can look to the future. Its hard to keep moving forward without knowing where we've been. Then we can see the patterns and changes that have been made and what still must be made. We can also see the mistakes we got a "do over" for and can hopefully try to prevent it from happening again.
    Well we can hope anyway.

    Whether you go to school or not, as I get to know you better I know you will never stop learning.
