I have just begun my adventure into the world of wine. I started my Level 2 WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) course this week, and I definitely have those newbie vibes of pure excitement and eagerness.
Although I am looking forward to learning all that I can about the industry, there is the gloomy reality of having homework!
When I graduated college in 2012, I remember the most relieving feeling was knowing I would never have another homework assignment again…hehe! But as the years went by, I felt this longing for my brain to learn things again. I missed the routine of going to class. I missed challenging myself. I missed that feeling of pride when I would know the answers to a test.
This WSET certification journey is going to fill voids in my life in multiple ways. One way is quenching my thirst for more education. Another way is helping me reroute my career path to one that is guided by a sincere interest and passion. And lastly, who wouldn’t want more wine in their life? Duh!
This blog serves as an outlet for me to express what I learn throughout this process. By sharing my knowledge with others, I’m helping myself retain it and put it into practice. Just as with everything else in life, use it or lose it!
P.S. The title of this post is a Billy Madison reference… in case you were thinking my dad made me do this 😉
