There is something to be said for having a well rounded education. My daughter is taking advanced math and science and literature classes and I know by her 4.0 that she understands the materiel. But I've never been so proud as when she decided she would sew a skirt, zipper and all, and did in in the mater of hours.
She can whip up just about anything in the kitchen, she is helping her Dad rebuild her old car, and she isn't afraid of a sewing machine we'd never used before, an old pattern we'd found at a rummage sale, and the fact that I'd never sewn a zipper in my life and had zero advice to give her.
She's a learner and a doer and I'm very pleased that she tries anything that tickles her interest. Well rounded indeed!
