mothergooseof4 Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 When I graduated from college, I said that I would never see the campus of a college again if I had it my way. I don't enjoy taking classes and my reading material would be called twaddle by most. I am very black and white and don't typically see things as artistic or have any interest in doing anything but the necessary. I have always enjoyed researching things that were currently applicable to my life, but otherwise uninterested in learning anything that I didn't need to. Until lately. I have gotten to where I can't get enough. I have a huge list of books that I want to read. I started doing some artistic stuff as well, which I have NEVER had any interest in. I want to take some martial arts classes. I stay up late to read or work at projects which is totally out of character for me considering that I have been a early-to-bed person ALL of my life. I want to shuck all of my chores and outside relationships to read and study. And, I am getting frustrated because I want all of those books read NOW and I want to be good at the other things NOW and there simply isn't enough time in the day. Anyone else experience this? Is it simply that I don't have toddlers around anymore and actually CAN do this? Is it a result of over a decade of hsing and my love of learning is developing after being squelched by my ps education? Or, is it a mid-life crisis?...I am almost 40 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
