For as long as I can remember, I’ve been… curious. Not just run of the mill ‘why is the sky blue?’ type of curious, but “Why is the sky blue? Does everybody know that? Who figured that out? Can I get a piece of paper that says that I know that?” I want a lifetime of education, and Iwant the plaques on the wall and framed diplomas and certificates to go with it.

So far, I have:

  • 8th Grade Graduation Certificate
  • High School Diploma
  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certification

I’m considering:

  • MBA
  • ACE Personal Trainer Certifcation
  • HubSpot Internet Marketing Professional
  • Google Adwords Certified Professional
  • Direct Marketing Certification
  • Copywriting Certification Program
  • Certified Property Manager
  • Life Coach Certification

I could add to the list every day. I’m not sure if it’s the drive to always have a billion ways to support myself, or the curiosity I mentioned earlier. If I had unlimited time (and, lets face it, unlimited money), I would collect information like some people collect toenails and oversized jars of tomatoes while preparing for the apocalypse.

By the way, this is what I would expect my apocalypse shelter to look like:

Most of the certificates and diplomas on the “consideration” list are not there because I think they’ll enhance my life, but because I want the evidence that I have acquired the knowledge that the certificates are tied to.
