I've kind of considered returning to school (for the sixth time) to complete that elusive Bachelor's degree and go on to a Master's. To what effect, though? While I love taking classes, I have no interest in getting a degree only to say that I did. I would want a real purpose behind it. I have given serious thought to becoming a math teacher, which is something I love.
I've also considered going into accounting. I love spending hours with figures, making everything come out right. But it *would* involve considerable learning at a higher level than I have been in the habit of living in, and it isn't as though I need the money.
What else might I do? Travel is out of the question. A certain amount of it is fine, but I'm a home-body. I like my computer, my sewing machine, my hobbies, my kitchen ... etc. Also, my husband and I have very different tastes when it comes to vacations, and I've no interest in going anywhere without him.
Writing! Writing is very appealing. I've always wanted to be a writer, and believe that I'm quite good at it. The problem is that over the last year I have started to put a time commitment into it, and I'm not sure that I am still adaptable enough for it. Nevertheless, I will try it and see where it leads.
And probably I'll return to my hobbies. I miss creating things. Maybe I'll set up an on-line business to sell the results.
Looks like actually I'll probably kind of continue to do as I have: a little bit of everything.
So the next question is: Will I have the health and ambition for it?
