Other than academics.

I always tell the young cousins and relatives to make sure that they have something else to do aside from academics. It will help develop their over-all personality. It will make them a well-rounded person, in my opinion. So, when one younger cousin asked me if it’s okay for him to try the cajon box drum, I immediately told him to go ahead and try it. He is a dean’s lister so I thought music will be a great diversion to his studies.

Academics is not everything. There should be other avenues where a person can learn from. I’d like to think that there is so much more to life than what is being spoon-fed to us in schools. All we have to do is go out of our comfort zones so we can learn from life itself.

Agree?
