education in its purest forms

Education in school pales in comparison to education in the real world. There are things that cannot be learned from a book but must be learned the hard way. Self confidence for one, one cannot learn self confidence from a book, one must learn self confidence from life experiences (and hard knocks). I, like every teenage girl, struggled with my self image for that brief horrible time in my adolesence. It took not school but personal experiences to teach me that I indeed was beautiful.
