Dear School/Education (Part 2),

Trying-to-find-a-reason-to-love-school Day Two:

Truth can be found everywhere. Have you noticed that SO many “genius” minds have come from the result of dropping out of school and studying on their own? Charles Darwin did just that, and by making a ridiculously long voyage around the world, came up with the theory of evolution. Truth for him was simply waiting in the Galápagos Islands…

I believe the same can be said about religion, too. You can find truth about God if you look for it, some places are just more accurate than others.

Now, for those of you who are thinking “Sweet. Dropping out of school sounds AWESOME,” (Austen Allred, that means you): let me remind you: these men are genius. And when I say genius, I mean inspired. I mean their mind was needed elsewhere. You, on the other hand, are needed where you stand.

For some reason I’m still trying to figure out, truth for me needs to be found at the university I’m at. So hello, Chloe Michelle, to another 2 years, 6 semesters, 20 months, plus 3 weeks, 3 days, and 8 more hours at Brigham Young University: Provo. Try to love it while you can.
