(A lack of) Thirst for knowledge
|Michael Ryan Nicholson|
I recently had a conversation with my girlfriend about furthering her education outside of the classroom. For instance, visting this website or ones like it, reading more non-fiction, even reading fiction. I feel bad forcing her into these things because she says she doesn’t have any intrest – I have no clue how to spark a desire to learn. Maybe I’m hitting on the wrong topics or maybe she is just destined to be a pre-school teacher who only cares about arts and crafts. Any advice on the subject would be appreciated.
Wrong topics. Everyone has their own passions, it’s hard to force them to emerge though.
Still, there may be some topic that she could be interested in, but she’s just not willing to try it out. Perhaps you could play a role of a pre-school teacher and implement the ideas of some interesting topics in her everyday life. I kinda tried it out with my boyfriend. He never liked reading, but I kept telling him about the books I read, about some interesting science facts, etc-no pressure. He was willing to listen. Four years later he tells me that he would like to WRITE a book. He is doing the research at the moment. But even if nothing happens in the end, I am going to be satisfied, cause I managed to move him a bit (unless someone else did it for me..).
