For the past couple months, I've taken on a few projects that have occupied my agenda, all in hopes of helping me grow on this cinematography journey (soon to be shown/uploaded/shared). And when September came, it was really weird not having classes. I'm still around McMaster University more often than I'd like to admit, so I'm still very much exposed to the student body. And when younger students/relatives ask about my favourite part of undergrad, I always talk about growth.
I've said this over and over again, but sometimes I forget myself.
The greatest thing about educational institutions is its advocacy for personal growth. Hands down.
You may learn a few methods of statistical analyses, some commerce terms, maybe even the elemental composition of a jaggerbomb – but out of everything, I think learning about yourself is the best way to keep growing yourself.
Eva is one of those individuals I really admire for pushing personal education and growth through sexual health.
Eva and I were in the same science program, and when I saw her recent vlogging endeavours, I knew she'd do a fantastic job in helping others learn more about themselves. Although a subject like this is typically taboo, we’re all human. Meaning she talks about the things that have direct significance in our lives. Especially in a culture full of growing young men, women, and emotional urges.
Off-camera, while setting up my equipment, all I could do was ask questions. For me, this was a completely new subject. She could pull up the most interesting of facts about gynecological history, toy shops, and anything else you may find uncomfortable. But trust me, it wasn't uncomfortable. The funny thing was that I didn't know just how much I didn't know.
If you have questions, ask them. Don't get stuck in a culturescape of taboo subjects. Keep growing.
