Learning Social Mobility: My Personal Curriculum

While it's a long time curiosity, I just realized that I haven't had deep delved into Social Mobility seriously. Now I'm deciding to make my own curriculum. You could get along if you want to.

Have you ever had a good friend but never spend a serious long talk together, suddenly you realized how precious they are and craving to spend much time with 'em? I think I'm in that phase with Social Mobility as a topic & studies. I'm probably had written some posts about it in my Instagram account but not allocating time for learning more. 

After finishing my 100 days #writingtap, a challenge for writing in 100 days nonstop at IG feed, now I want to move forward to learn & write the process a bit more thorough. I've planned on what course/lessons I should take, what book I should read and committing to write my thinking process in digesting the lessons. I believe it'll be raw, potholes early notes and I'm okay to share it in public as I know it'll hold me accountable & could be useful to others at the same time. I'll spend at least 1 hour daily to learn & 30 minutes to reflect, think or write on this specific learning process.

The list below is non-exhaustive and will be updated when I've written my articles to summarize and give my own standpoint:
