Day 132


You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.  ~ Clay P. Bedford

It’s 10: 02 PM on day 132 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, go to church – I didn’t go up there and tell the congregation about my campaign not because I chickened-out but because I wanted to wait until I heard back from the Firstgiving team as to whether my campaign would be extended or not – hopefully they’ll get back to me but next Sunday so I can make the announcement then 🙂 feed myself a KFC Twister – a wrap consisting of chicken strips and salad – for breakfast my sister had to help me out a little because every time I tried to do it the contents of the wrap would fall out from the bottom but that’s okay sometimes asking help shows your strength rather than your weakness 🙂 –  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours –  no donations were made today 😦 and  exercise for 5 minutes.

Growing up I didn’t see the point in going to school, but today when Kate – my friend on Twitter – told me that she could relate to my story because her twenty-one-year-old  daughter  suffered from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome to which I asked what’s Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a few minutes later she replied a connective tissue disorder and it was in that moment that I finally understood that the primary purpose of an education is not to teach Math, Science or Biology, but rather to instil in you the confidence to absorb as well as question all the information that you receive. Do you still possess the thirst for knowledge that you acquired in the classroom? 🙂
