AAS in Computer Programming, BBA in Business Operations Management, MS Degree in Living from The School of Direct Exposure (in all due respect of course...).
I strongly assert that any academic efforts need to be hammered into more tangible forms through direct experience. Following these words, I've taken the time to explore a number of destinations, self-funding all efforts, in the same manner as my college degrees were funded. I've taken that travel initiative not for the sake of blissful escapism, but to see what's out there. I mean, after all, how can we know the essence of anything, if we don't take the time to personally explore the subject matter. And as first world caretakers of the world, I firmly assert that this travel option is not just a luxury, but an obligation of ours in our service to the rest of humanity. (And make no mistakes, I hate melodrama... but how else can one say it).
Destinations explored thus far include: England, Germany, France, Denmark, Holland, Portugal, Australia, Japan, Saipan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, India, parts of Canada, parts of Mexico and all of the Fifty States, not including Louisiana and South Dakota (just missed them).
