I have a problem. I find the universe way, way too interesting. Which means I get very scattered with my desires to learn and do things. I’ve never been the sort of person who could commit to one field or one avocation at a time. But the list of things I want to learn is getting too out of hand. I need to choose just one or two things and focus on them for a bit.
List of things I’ve been trying to learn:
- More cello (i.e., resume my lessons)
- Catch up on new web development technologies (I was a webdev back in the late 90s)
- Spanish and Arabic
Do I want to go to grad school for library science, or try for a PhD in statistics? Or should I just get a part-time job and wait to go back to school? I need to make more time for my tapestry weaving, and for reading things other than fanfic. And I want to take calculus, chemistry and physics classes at the community college, just because I never got the chance in high school. But I need to leave time for cycling and hiking, and I want to travel, and and and…
You see why I get so scattered. I get to spend some time thinking about what I really want, what my true Will is. And it doesn’t help that the mental illness shows up to the party and renders me useless on a regular basis. Argh.
