I am writing a little memoir of my college years.
Here is the Oxford dictionary definition of the word, “memoir.”
Or Monday I am going to the public library to attend a public memoir writing group.
I enjoy writing.
I really enjoyed college.
I worked at the campus radio station for 15 years as a broadcaster as well.
And yes, like Albert Einstein I am a polymath too.
Unlike Einstein I did not discover the Theory of Relativity.
My only phenomena was surviving two car accidents in two months that totaled both cars!
When I graduated I had over 500 credits from my University spanning 14 years.
I took a double major in Music and in English, along with a number of other credits in subjects ranging from anatomy, science fiction, film studies, to sailing, theater arts, chemistry, horsemanship and many, many more classes.
I took morning, noon and night classes.
I attended classes Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer.
My thirst for knowledge was driven by the fact I dropped out of high school at age 15.
I was a non-traditional student who began college at age 29. When I graduated I was in my forties!
I felt I needed to catch up intellectually.
I liked being a perpetual student.
I will let you know how the memoir writing group goes next week. ✍
