As 2012 begins its roll downhill (cause let’s face it, at my age just about everything rolls downhill. LOL!), I find my life busier than usual. Now, in addition to the ‘usual’ ; home schooling two semi-willing boys, taking care of the house, and, of course, writing… I’ve added college. And, apparently, blogging. Ummm…yeah, I’m not sure what possessed me, either.
Other than the desire to learn. For me, it’s not really about having a college degree. It’s about learning, absorbing the teachings and wisdom of others to move myself forward in my own thirst for knowledge. The degree at the end of it all will be a bonus. A nice bonus, but a bonus nonetheless. I find myself exhilarated by the idea of it all. I’ve been out of school for over 20 years, so I suppose it’s all right that I be excited. God knows, I wasn’t thrilled at high school… but college is a whole ‘nother ball of wax (as I try to explain to my teenager). At my age (no, I’m not telling exact numbers) school is about what you want, not what your parents want… at least, it should be. If it’s not, there are problems, but that’s a completely different matter, and not one that applies to me, anyway.
In 2012 I choose to take one day at a time, one breath at a time, one class at a time, one blog at a time…
I may be crazy busy, but I choose to see myself as blessed in having the ability to be so 🙂
