Whenever I was younger and wanted to do something big like helping my dad put furniture together, he would tell me that I was still too young and that I would have to wait until I was older. Everytime I hear something like this from my parents, I always wished that I could grow up quickly and be able to do certain things.
Sometimes even now, I wish I had experience in any area I wanted so that I could do or achieve something without having to put in the time and effort. For example, I really want to get a job and get out of college. Sometimes, I wish I could get the experience I needed for a job and just skip all the years of college and save all the money spent towards my tuition.
Do you think that maybe we could just put “experience” into band-aids and stick them on whenever we want to do something we don’t have the experience for?
Maybe if we wanted to get an A on a math test that we didn’t study for, we could just stick on a math patterned band-aid on our arm and get all the experience and knowledge for math in a second and ace that test. Or, if we wanted to figure out how to raise a kid, we could stick a baby patterned band-aid on our heads and in a second learn how to properly take care of a baby.
But then again, life would be less enjoyable if we could get experience the easy way?
