When I started elementary school about 30 years ago, my life wasn’t quite complete.
Sure, starting school was a very big step. It made me feel like more of a human being than I was back in kindergarten.
But there was still something missing, and that was the status of “pioneer.”
You see, where I grew up (Zagreb in Croatia, in what was then Yugoslavia), all first-graders went through a ceremony in November where they would wear a little uniform and make a solemn oath to study hard and listen to their parents and be constructive members of society.
After you took the oath, you became a pioneer, which meant something back when I was six.
Here’s why I bring this up.
On Tuesday, June 27th, I’ll be kicking off a 5-week online course about essential oils.
