Hey Frank! Thanks for sharing, I appreciate it. I 100% agree with what you said. It makes no sense to learn something that doesn’t interest you, or something you’ll never make a career out of. Kids know it, but they’re will, passion and drive is broken down through obedience, etc.
I read your article and loved it. I also commented on it as well. My feedback would be to space out your sentences a bit, so there’s more white space. And run your writing through something like — http://www.grammarcheck.net/editor/ (I use it personally)
Other than that you did a good job. The more you write, the more you’ll learn.
Take care for now!
