Learn Almost Anything From a Celebrity

I never was a good student. Let me rephrase; I was an ‘OK’ student, but I never liked school. Maybe it was because I’m somewhat of an introvert, and being in a crowded space everyday made me koo koo. Maybe it’s because I never could figure out what in the hell I’d ever do with trigonometry, so learning it felt like a complete waste of time.

The two loves of my life (besides my children) are fashion and writing. So once I graduated high school, I moved to Toronto to take a Fashion Design program. I loved it. I love fashion. I love design. I love being creative. I love it all. Once design school ended however, I didn’t end up actually going into design. Life and family came calling, and though I’m ecstatic with my amazingly beautiful family; kids, life, etc., and even though my life was completely full, I was still missing the touch of vibrant fabrics and I missed the anticipation of turning those fabrics into glamorous things.

As an adult, I’ve found that I’m exactly the opposite of my ‘school hating’ teen aged self. As an adult, I have this ‘never stop learning’ attitude, and a serious thirst to learn everything I possibly can about anything and everything. I can’t say that I’m looking to go “back to school”, but I’ve wanted to get back into fashion in some form, and I had no idea exactly what that would look like.

I had also been tinkering with script writing, and I actually did find a screenwriting course by way of a continuing ed program, but that wasn’t nearly what I wanted.

One day, I was browsing Facebook and an ad for Masterclass popped into my feed. It was a video for a “Writing for Television” class being given by Shonda Rhimes. This was amazing! This woman is a dynamo, and here she was teaching a video class on writing! I wanted to take this class!

And so I did 🙂 But that class only made my thirst for learning even stronger, and now I didn’t want to learn just any old way. I want to learn from the best at their craft! So I decided to take more classes.

I poked around on the Masterclass website, remembering that I’d seen a class by Christina Aguilera. I wanted to take it, but I’m not that brave 🙂

I’ve since taken 3 more classes, and I’ve loved them all. For my next one, I might step right outside my creative box and take Gordon Ramsay’s Cooking Class. I love Gordon Ramsay, but I don’t typically enjoy cooking. Maybe he can change that 😉

If you’ve got a thirst to get your “learnin’ on” like I did (and do), what’re you waiting for?! Masterclass has the class you’ve been looking for, and it’s being taught by one of your favorite celebrities!

You can even give a Masterclass as a gift. Cool right?

The classes aren’t even expensive; about $120 for 20 video classes. You could pay that for 5 classes anywhere else!
