While studying for a degree in the Textile industry I took the core class ~ Sociology.
Shortly after, I dropped my major and left school. I moved 5,000 kilometers away and enrolled in University to study something else. One of my first classes on my new path was a language class ~ Sanskrit.
Now, decades later, that oddball class is still a part of my everyday life.
If you have a passion to learn, take a leap of faith ~ Study whatever it is that you “feel” is interesting.
Why did I study Sanskrit for two years while at University? On my course of sociology, I wanted to read the oldest books in the world. ~ Yes, I also studied Hebrew. Neither course helped me to fulfill my unrealistic desire to read books in those languages but both of those course influenced the rest of my life.
Here’s a joke I heard in a pub on the island Santorini.
A person that speaks three languages is called tri-lingual.
A person that speaks two languages is called bi-lingual.
A person that speaks one language is called an American.
