Retirement Yenta loves to learn new things. She’s learning Spanish right now (Que está aprendiendo español en este momento). Your dear Yenta strongly suggests you go back to school and learn something new. This will keep your mind working and help ward off any signs of forgetfulness that sometimes comes with aging and not using your ol’ noggin. There are advantages of taking classes at a local college. They include: meeting new people, building a new social group, killing the curve for all the traditional college-age students, and simply, reliving memories of your first days on campus. If you don’t want to go back to a traditional school setting, you can take an online course. Many reputable schools now offer this alternative route for learning. AND, finally, if you want to save a few bucks (you KNOW how this Yenta likes a good deal), go to a local bookstore and buy a textbook on the subject you are interested in and read it. Retirement Yenta says: Self-improvement should not end upon retirement. Self-improvement should BEGIN today and continue the rest of your life.
