On January 20, I start my next batch of college courses at the Community College of Philadelphia, namely, Calculus I and a Chemistry course, the latter for preparation for the majors-level Biology and Chemistry in the fall (or even summer!).
Since I will be more focused on coursework (and the textbooks that go with them), I will leave the pleasure text reading aside until after the bachelor’s is complete. If I don’t cross paths with the subject matter of the sold books (yes, Cedar City!), no problem, I’ve got Amazon (and maybe other sites) on your side in case you still want them. (Cedar City Books is a seller in the Amazon Marketplace among many others). Bibliographies at the back pages of books often point the way. However, many adult duties, such as work, childrearing, etc., may get in the way, so I must always budget my time properly.
In a spirit of lifelong learning, I have a whole lifetime ahead of me to independently learn things not covered in college (if desired) through textbooks and other resources; for now, though, reading and related collegiate activities are paramount. Indeed, we’ll never get to read all books made. But rigorous reading not required by the classes (or any hobby for that matter) may become just another Facebook, not in its communicative nature, but in its power to distract. Again, all things in moderation.
However, I will try to get as much Bible study in there as possible. But that’s for another post.
Wish me a great spring semester, as my knowledge and understanding blossoms!
