Looking for what's next...

I am getting that 'antsy' feel in my gut. That one that tells me a change is in the air for me, and I'm not quite sure what it is going to be. See, I'm kinda of a crisis, big project kind of gal and everything is going along well, only needing little tweaks here and there to keep it on course. Which is kind of leaving me a little rudderless. No big projects, nothing to really stress and obsess over. Seriously, what fun is that?

I started thinking about some new projects I could take on. I always talk about how my dream is to be a professional college student. Really...take all those anthropology, sociology, history, physical science, environmental science and language classes I just couldn't fit into my four-year degree. Tonight I found myself cruising through the websites of our local universities to see what they had in the continuing ed/distance programs. Lots and lots of classes, and nothing that reached out and said - "Take me." And, at $400/class it would have to do this pretty loudly.

Since I homeschool, it isn't too far out for me to say, "I'll just homeschool myself." Think of what an impression that will make on the children. So, now I am left trying to decide what I want to learn. Do I want something schooly and theoretical, or a practical art. Nothing is crying out at me right now.

I guess I'll just have to wait to see what comes.

A university class would be fun! (The $400, not so much.) I've been thinking recently that I need to start studying Latin ahead of Travis. Greek took, I suppose. But there are so many other things I'd Rather do!
I think your taking a class would be a wonderful example for the kids!
