Studious Seniors

15 Sep

I work at a community college.

It’s interesting.

All ages and backgrounds…and economic status’  attend.

But there is A LOT of old(er) people with their rolly backpacks and an eagerness to learn.

And when I say old I mean over 70. And when I say rolly backpacks I’m not saying I approve of those.

But seriously BRAVO to all the seniors out there who still find a passion for learning, growth and bettering themselves. I love old people who never give up and never stop living even when maybe their hips or eyes or whatever aren’t working as well as they used to. It really is a testament to the power of education and the power of knowledge intertwined with health and vivacious-ness (you should seem how fast some of them can roll those backpacks!). I know with my pessimistic views on death… and life… I might not be so open-minded when I’m that age. But I can only hope that I haven’t given up on continuously bettering myself.

And who knows, by that time I might be more open to rolly back packs too.

Go Seniors!
