I love learning. So I trained as a teacher. Big mistake.
I associated education with the education system. (As one does.) Wrong. On two counts.
First: schools, Science and Western society feed on a diet of left-brain thought. You know—logic, analysis, step-by-step thinking. Junk-food philosophy, IMHO.
Me, I’m a right-brain person. Intuitive. I grok the big-picture. I swallow concepts whole. Therefore, it wasn’t a good idea for me to stay behind after school.
See, schools are filled with people. And people wear me out. Seriously. There’s likely an Asperger’s thing going on.
But it’s alright, Ma. I’m highly functional!
