What I have learned is that one really doesn't need "official" education to get into the subjects you want to get into. It's no surprise that you didn't have a good english teacher. Neither did I. The education system is a part of the Establishment and only "teaches" you what they want you to repeat as part of the status quo system. Think of the YEARS you will spend sitting in classrooms paying to be indoctrinated with outdated and old methods. The internet has all of the knowledge you seek at your fingertips, you simply need to start looking.
I apologize if that came off as "anti education" but I really mean it as the complete opposite. I'm PRO "self-education" because Words don't teach—only experience teaches and you getting online and letting your interests drive you towards what you want to know is in itself a unique experience. Law is falling apart, Economics are falling apart, Political Science seems like an oxymoron and History is distorted and purposefully NOT being updated with new discoveries. Do these outdated subjects seem like a good investment in your future in a changing world? Even if you do pursue it, think for yourself and challenge EVERYTHING you're being "taught" and don't just take a professor's word for it. Many professors who are attempting to update their curriculum are being removed from "the system" because they aren't following the status quo.
If you want to learn about starting a blog, just google it , "How to start a blog" and let your intuition guide you to what stands out to you. I, much like yourself, never had a desire to write or really read anything. I'm a Polish-born Canadian citizen and English is actually my second language although I speak and write way better in English than Polish now. No one taught me to write this way, It just sort of "grew" on me and I keep getting better and better at it. I've never written more than on the Daily Paul and I consider this site my greatest source of inspiration to keep it up. There's something wonderfully intoxicating about connecting with like-minded people and sharing your thoughts with them and resonating with theirs.
The world needs people like you, bright, driven and the ability to see through the BullS* out there. That attitude alone will bring you great success no matter where the next step takes you. Follow your inspiration—your desire—and you'll never be misguided.
Lastly, YES please check out Joe's podcasts. There's something about REAL people talking about REAL issues that just makes everything else, like the old dinosaur corporate media, seem substance-less. That's because it really is.
