Which one are you? Which one would you like to be?
I’ve always been a book smart kind of gal. I loved going to school. I loved getting my new schools supplies. I loved the smell of brand new text books. I loved the excitement of the very first day of school. Even now, I’m so excited about Girlie Girl going to Kindergarten since we can now go back-to-school shopping! The notebooks, the pencils, the folders, on and on and on.
Besides all that, I usually got pretty good grades. It made my parents very happy since they are strong supporters of a good education. They’ve always said that if I ever wanted to go back to school for any reason, no matter how old I was, they would pay for it. Can you imagine a 40 something year old woman asking her parents for tuition money?
My sister on the other hand never really liked school. In fact, she almost got kicked out of Community College. I never knew that could even happen to someone. However, when it comes to common sense, she’s all A’s. If I were in any kind of emergency, I’d want her with me because I know we’d turn out fine. I guess that’s why my parents never really worried about her . . . she’s a survivor.
What about you? Are you book smart or street smart?
