insatiable desire to learn

1176405_2Here we go again. At age 40, I’m going back to school. The last time I did this, I was 38. My insatiable desire to learn is going to kill me. The commitment to homework at my age is almost non-existent. Heck, my commitment to cleanliness, exercise, nutrition, volunteer work certainly wanes these days. I would rather watch TV and play Facebook games all day than do anything productive. {I sound like a teenaged boy, don’t I?} It’s probably because I’m single. I hate to say it, but perhaps I need to face the truth. Nobody comes over, so my place doesn’t need to be clean. Nobody is dating me, so I don’t need to lose weight. LOL

But eventually, I will get bored of watching TV and playing Facebook games all day. I know because I’ve tried it. And this certificate (my third) in non-profit management is new and offered only once a year, and it would help me in my volunteer position and facilitate networking with important contacts. And it’s online, so I don’t have to take time off work to attend classes, like I did with my last certificate (which resulted in the creation of my volunteer project and position).

So, I’m going to ignore the additional debt I’m going to take on {what happens when you have insurmountable debt? Do “they” come after you? And if so, who is “they”?} and start working on my application.

I’m counting this as part of my 40th birthday celebration.
