Albion Online When Should I Spend Learning Points
I have never owned a home and don’t really want to start paying down student loans or anything. I enjoy my job and I keep an active lifestyle, but my mind is on what I’m learning. It’s unclear what school is even really for. What I’m asking is whether it’s worth my time to spend my hours in a curriculum designed only for the sole purpose of learning and accumulating course points?
Thanks for the question, H.K. I guess this is you’re way of saying, “To what degree am I meant to acquire a positive value out of such the time I spend in college?” It sounds like you’re so apathetic toward this question that you’re getting mad over the vague notion of whether it’s worth your time to learn.
So, let’s try to talk you into value. I would say that if you want to be as value-oriented as possible, you should find a vocational school that focuses on a specific profession, as opposed to a college that offers a lot of general-education classes, over a period of one year. If you want to work, you should go where you know the work market. There are companies out there who are hiring and won’t throw you on the street. Find them and let them know what kind of skill sets you can bring to the table.
If you want to make a career out of it, then take the time to learn. What exactly will it take to make a career in your field? How much knowledge, experience and education are you going to need? What kind of skills will you need to know these things? Those are questions, that can be answered by moving ahead in a vocation.
Having a steady job will buy you years of information, so if it’s going to be years, you need to get more education. You can do that by taking advantage of an online higher education or taking a short courses in a field. Maybe you know a particular industry, or you want to create a business. Any way you can be up and running and being able to get hands-on experience is a good thing.
All in all, it’s all about timing. If you’re only in it for the learning and not really for the work or for the money, you’ll be happier in your current job, or else you won’t be the person you want to be in your field.
I’m not really sure where this is heading, so forgive me for being vague on this part. Anyway, I feel like I need to tell you not to feel like you’re failing at college.
Look at the resources you have around you — books, educational assistance, guidance counselors, information specialists. Each one of these groups, even if they seem to be disconnected at first, can direct you to something that is actually helpful to you. There are plenty of resources in your community, and online. Most schools will point you in the right direction for you.
The Venn diagram is getting smaller and smaller. It’s so much easier to just pick up a book on a topic and learn as you go. This way, you don’t have to spend all of your time going to the library to find the information you need. Once you get the information, you can then push that information down to a class or to another class. With more time invested, you can do more of it.
Do your due diligence, read and learn, and then get out there and start carving out a career.
