Soo I got a job at subway a few months ago & it was meant to be part time. I'm not the type of person who wants to work for someone else, I just needed extra money for gas & food. Well after awhile it became full time while still going to school 5 days a week. I literally had no time at all to do anything I WANTED. I felt like a slave from the time I woke up to the time I went to sleep & sooo...

Learning is like happiness, it's a choice. Personally, I can learn from just about anything. That's what life is about, learning, growing, & changing to become the best version of yourself you can be. I think the fact that we call learning is getting an "education" trains people to think in order to learn something it must be from a peir or out of a text book which is 1837372% WRONG. For me, that's the least bit of learning that goes on through out my day. Except for Dr. Preston's class. There's a process of unlearning that must go on so that we change our perspective on the approach of this class. But the only way to unlearn is to LEARN. Learn to unlearn. Be open to new & different information because in this fast changing world we must learn new ideas, designs ect. So let's start learning to unlearn some of the things we've been taught all our life, something simple like structure.. What I do is question things because it leads to realization & you just want to say what the ****. Soo take something like structure, think about it, is structure really necessary to LIFE? Why should OUR (mine & yours) life be structured in any way. I look at structure, question it, then realize it's OWNERSHIP. Structure owns your life. You're told "get up early & go to school", "study & get good grades so you can get a good job" (then were presented all the careers & jobs "available"). Oh, then when you get home do some "homework". Then, when you're home your life is structured by your parents. Even though they mean good, it's still structure. A job is structure, you're told when to show up, what to do, when to eat, & when to go home. LETS TAKE CONTROL of OUR LIFE. Go look at the sky & learn that hey on Tuesday at 8:30 am the sky is clear. It's that easy!

Yesterday I left my house at 7 in the morning to drive to 29 palms & was home at 11. I went by myself through all the busy free ways, stopped in west Hollywood & a few other places.. It felt good to get away from what I'm use to & see every day. I learned a lot on this trip & one thing that it's really taught me is that you really don't know anything besides your perception on life. I'm use to a quiet town & when I was in downtown Hollywood I just realized that these are people's daily lives. Someone wakes up every day there, goes to school every day there, comes home every day there & it dawned on me that there really is no way to understand someone else's life because you're really only living yours. You think everyone can relate to eachother? That's not always true. I basically was out of my car for about 2 hours or so out of the whole day & that was in 29 palms. I tripped out on how many tattoo shops & haircut places were there. Also, how everyone there is in the military. Literally like everyone. & it's not really their choice.. They go where they're stationed & bring their whole family with them so they have to start all over again. It must be hard. I'm still trying to figure what else I've learned from taking an adventure like that on my own but I know it's taught me a valuable lesson & those are what I live for.
