Things you've learned that school won't teach you

Day 23, Thursday: Things you've learned that school won't teach you
I would have to say most things I know were not learned in school.  Its sad that school really does not teach you much about the real world.  Even college does not really teach anything about real life.  Being in school, not class, but school itself does teach you some life lessons, like how to get somewhere on time every day and how to interact with people and how to deal with problems.
Mainly what school taught me was the basics, math, English, a little history (what I can remember) and some science.  Because my job has nothing to do with math or science or history and because I have no interest in doing any of this in my spare time, I was right when I stated in school, I will never use geometry or calculus and I don't even need to know how to add or subtract fractions, that is what a computer is for lol! 
What I have learned that school will never teach you is:
  •  how to pay bills
  •  how to manage money
  •  how to get a job
  •  how you present yourself goes a long way
  •  how to stay orgainized
  •  how to buy a house
  •  how to move to another country
  •  how to imigrate someone into America
  •  how to deal with friends and co workers
  •  how to cook
  •  how to clean
  • how to sew
  • how to change your name
  • how to drive
  • how to swim
  • how to fix minor problems on a car
  • how to do minor pluming and home updates
Pretty much everything that I do on a daily baisis was either taught by my parents or I learned by looking up the information myself or I learned the hard way by trial and error.

School is good for the basics but after that I have realized you are on your own!
