On going back to school (again)

In half an hour I go back to school.

You would have thought that 13 years of normal school, followed by 3 years of glassblowing-school, followed by several months of Meister-glassblowing-school would be enough for anyone.

You’d be wrong.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that, but you’d still be wrong.

Although it depends, I suppose, on what constitutes ‘enough’, really. Maybe it would be enough for most people. Probably.

Thing is, I’m not most people, and I don’t like not knowing things I ought to know. Which is why I’m going to add another 680+ hours (spread over 15 months) to the above list.

At some point in the distant future, there is a chance of my taking over a glassblowing company. Legally,  anyone with a “Meister” in glassblowing under their belt can own a glassblowing company. Theoretically anyone who feels brave enough can run a glassblowing company. Practically, I feel a lot out of my depth. Especially which it comes to things like planning…

Despite knowing that it’s not going to happen for a while, if ever. Learning-by-doing is fine, but I’d like to learn by learning first, so that I know what to start doing…

In a few minutes I start a course of practical economics and company management (or words to that effect, I think it translates as “business studies”).

I even have a pad of lined paper and brand new biros with me…. 🙂

    1. Thank you – and thank you 🙂 I’m going to need it (and also some way of waking up at 6am on a Saturday without complaint, or knackeredness!)
